Janus

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

Microsoft's internal name for its Digital Rights Management Software. Janus was the two faced god, looking both front and back at the same time. Microsoft chose this because the likeness of Janus was often placed at doors as a symbolic guard.

I don't know whether most Romans really believed Janus was guarding their homes, but I'm sure some of them did. No doubt, some people today will believe that Microsoft is working in their best interests.
