And, more interesting: is there somewhere a relay or router such that if
you send to it some mail for a .bitnet address
(xxxx@yyyyy.bitnet%clever.relay), it
knows how to route correclty the message in the new Internet way?
Many thanks to anyone can help me.

If possible CC: your message directly to me.

Subject: the variety and frequency of signs and portents?



i am interested in the variety of omens and prodigies which the romans
and maybe other civilizations have interpreted in their histories of
themselves. are there scholarly lists of the variety of omens seen, their
dates and reference sources? here is an example of what i am seeking:

lightning strikes Temple of Hope 218 BC Livy XXI.62
Flaminius' sacrificial calf misbehaves 217 BC Livy XXI.63

in my slight reading concerning auguries, it seems that lightning
striking some public monument and the behavior of sacrificial animals or
wild birds were high in frequency. this is understandable if these
things are near or dear to gods. however, i would like to see the
variety of more unique events which were reguarded as portents of
historic significance.
