I'm sorry you didn't "officially" make it, but your project was in validation when I closed the count, so it is among those 6 "finished" projects.
Anne, I am glad the Kalevala got done - I think it was the longest running project on our list.
I have moved it down to the other completed projects - that makes a total of 45 projects finished from the clean up list, yet another record!
I'm glad the Kalevala made it. It was a really interesting read. I'd like to thank Anne for pointing me toward it, because I enjoyed it a great deal.
It's an epic poem about three wizards and their ongoing feud with a witch. It contains all kinds of oddness, but perhaps my favourite bit was when "Leminkinenen Kakumele also known as Akto" (and my goodness does that wreck the metre: __just call him Akto__ I kept thinking) breaks into the Witch's fortress, but to complete his burglary also needs to sneak in a plow and an ox.
I'm not a catburglar myself, but at the point you need to sneak in livestock, I think you may be doing it wrong.
