Explicit hoc Totum

Post date: Jan 3, 2024

"Explicit hoc totum; Pro Christo da Mihi Potum"

The above was a phrase that I had heard early in my years with the SCA, attributed as a postscript to an 8th century scribe. As told it would essentially translate to:

The job is done, I think;

For Christ’s sake, give me a drink.

This is the feeling that I have at this moment, at least for now.

On October 6, 2021 I began the conversion of this website from Google Classic Sites. Today, over 800 days or 2.25 years later, the conversion is done.

Three of the original pages were converted to spreadsheets: Book List, Facsimiles, Transcriptions & Translations & Online Articles. All other lists that I had been converted to spreadsheets are now linked directly in their respective pages. Each link on each spreadsheet I had to validate and capture the title for, as that information did not save during the automated conversion process. I estimate that nearly 1000 links I verified during the manual conversion process. At least I was able to remove invalid links and find some ones to add.

I must say I do like the new Google site as it certainly allows the website to be easily navigated using Personal Computers and Mobile Devices, automatically adjusting the display.

I have also had a chance to start revisiting some of my recipes to capture photographs of the completed dishes. The first of these recipes as of this writing are linked below.

I look forward in the days, weeks, months and years ahead to continue to build the content of this site with my other historical cooking enthusiasts.

As always I wish you Good Health and Good Eating
