It has been brought to our attention that our implementation of the Discworld calendar did not match canon, specifically with regards to the number of days in each month.

This has now been rectified (see "help calendar" (concepts)). As a result, a number of dates no longer exist (in particular large parts of the month of Ick), and dates that were called one thing yesterday go by a new one today.

Having seen the recent success of the Ankh-Morpork Jobbe Market, local entrepreneur Ozzie Guntram has bought out the old pottery store in Sto Lat!
