    The early Roman Kingdom calendar began in March, which is why the last months September, October, November, December have names meaning 7th month, 8th month, 9th month, 10th month.

    I wondered about the same historical point when I saw the OP yesterday.

    This is about one of those page-top things that I closed and have already completely forgotten, isn't it?

    Yes, that's correct.

    Say - a few week ago, after this, I started seeing that migration announcement w/ no collapse option.

    ...Seems to me that the difficult server migration is best forgotten this far along, not taking up page-top space until the end of the forthcoming July...

    Thought I'd gotten rid of this. Should be gone now. Thanks for the tip.

    ^I'm not seeing any New Year announcements. Could this be a browser issue? I'm using Firefox, and I know you prefer a different browser.

    If it refuses to go away, just look at it this way: It's probably a new year on some other planet, and we're sending good wishes to that place. :p

    I'm talking about the server migration announcement I'd mentioned previously that Petek thought he's gotten rid of -it was gone for me between then and today- coming back...

    This announcement is run by a script, something I hadn't seen before. I set the announcement to expire in the past, but the script seems to have reverted the expiration date. I'll delete it later on tonight to avoid stressing the server.

    Sorry, I misread things, then. I've been seeing the server migration notice, too.

    The server migration announcement should be gone for good (I hope).
