From my diary

Back on the chain gang, moan groan … until I consider that there are many people who would gladly swap places with me!

I’ve just upgraded the memory in my laptop this evening from 4Gbto 8Gb.  It makes quite a remarkable difference to the speed of the machine.  The memory I got from Crucial.com, whose bit of software telling me what to get was quite useful.  Mind you, it gave me several choices at the same price, and I had to burrow through the unfamiliar specifications for a while to work out that one set of memory must be rather faster than the other.  How long it is, since I knew PC hardware in endless detail!

Meanwhile I have received a Word document from Andrew Eastbourne containing a translation of John the Lydian’s De Mensibus (On the months) book IV, chapter 3 (‘March’).  It’s very good indeed, and contains a lot of interesting material, and not merely about Roman dates and events.  When I get a moment, I shall upload it.

No news from Lightning Source, from whom I ordered a new proof copy a week ago.  I shall have to pester them, I see.
