93 All,

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish visitors to LAShTAL.COM the very best Season’s Greetings.

Happy Christmas, if you celebrate it, or Yule, or Saturnalia, or whatever.

Now, as we approach the end of 2005, is the perfect opportunity to re-assess where we are with LAShTAL…

The site continues to go from strength to strength. With more than 600 comments on on at least 650 news items, the site receives anything between 5,000 and 25,000 hits per day. The forums are the most intelligent on any Thelemic site and LAShTAL.COM is now commonly accepted, if I say so myself, as the definitive Thelemic web site.

The New Year will see the introduction of a wide range of new functionality, including custom-written collaborative bibliography software.

The 1,150 registered members here include all the prominent modern Thelemites and I’m asked weekly to allow advertising on the site. Yet this is all achieved by the generous voluntary donations of a handful of members and work undertaken by one webmaster (your’s truly, Paul Feazey), one technical administrator (Ian Rons) and one design assistant (Mark Durant)…

I’m very proud of what’s been achieved so far with LAShTAL.COM – including the fact that since September 2003 it’s received nearly two-and-a-quarter million hits – and really look forward to what this site will achieve in 2006!

So, best wishes to you all…
