The Yahoo group "fasti" has just one purpose: to deliver a daily Roman calendar (with major festivals and the character of each day indicated) to the mailboxes of subscribers. A great part of the utility of the daily messages is contained in the message header alone. There you will see the date in two formats, ancient (Latin) and modern (English). You will be told if a day is unlucky ("ater") and other information that is probably only of interest to those who are active in a sacer publica that is timed too match that of Roma Antiqua. There are notifications and descriptions of the major public holidays. Since these arrive just a day before the holiday, they are not very useful for planning, but all in all the fasti mailing list is a nice way to get in the rhythm of the Roman calendar and to get some daily exposure to Roman dates.
