08:11 am - Venus Versicles, Key of Solomon, from Liber AL (untested)
 1st  While there is no verse on the original, my notes have, "Sing the rapturous love-song"

2nd  from I:32  "Follow out the ordeals of my knowledge!  seek me only!"  (the rest of the verse would be appropriate as well, although this would seem to do.  For them that find this verse appropriate, at least.)

3rd  I:12 "Come forth, of children, under the stars, & take your fill of love!"

4th  from I:41 "There is no bond that can unite the divided but love"

5th  from I:63  "Sing the rapturous love-song unto me!  ...Drink to me, for I love you!  I love you!"
        from I:61  "I love you!  I yearn to you!  Pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous, I who am all pleasure and purple, and drunkenness of the innermost sense, desire you."

Of course some of these may need some notaquarion in order to fit....

Some of these seem more appropriate than others (I'm not sure about #2 for example). 

I welcome feedback to this post, as well as posts with your own ideas!  I'm sure there must be some very fitting verse in Liber LXV and it seems like there is everything in Vision and the Voice.

07:52 am - Content Management System for Thelemicversicles.info
I'm looking for suggestions as to what kind of CMS to use for the the site associated with this project.

Basically, I'd like something Wiki-style except I'm not sure about giving users the power to delete from the page.  I.e. I'd like to avoid any random asshattery.

I've never installed and managed anything but WordPress so I don't know if I can do this with Wiki software (I'm assuming I can?).  I also don't know if there are easier solutions?

Basically I want:

Multiple users to be able to sign up and be approved without a human mod approving (unless y'all have a good reason I should set it up otherwise).

A file structure like thelemicversicles.info/solomon/greater/venus, where users could add new directories and sub-directories.  Said directories which I could move around withiut much trouble if I needed to.

Users add to "community pages" (such as the above filepath example) instead of every users having their own separate pages to post their versicles.  User pages would be nice but arean't strictly necessary.

Security and ease of use are the top priorities here.  I suppose I could do it with multiple-user wordpress but that might get messy?  And perhaps as an alternative to restricting user deletion power, a CMS that backs up every change in a way that won't be a pain in the ass for an English major to access and re-instate would be nice.  Or a technically-minded Thelemite who could help w/something a bit advanced?  (I can learn the technical stuff if I need to.  I'm smart but not all that experienced.)

Suggestions, anyone?

05:40 am - Exciting!
Hey there everybody (all two other people at the moment)!

I really like this idea and hope to contribute to it. I'm looking forward to what we all have to contribute and what we can all learn from this. I really can't wait to experiment with the new verses.
