Inspiration for the name of this web-site comes form Pompeius:
A long time ago, when food was in short supply in Rome, Pompeius sailed to Africa to bring back food. When the ships were laden with grain, a storm stopped them from leaving the harbour. Sailors were afraid to sail on stormy waters. Then Pompeius first hoisted the sails and shouted: "Navigare necesse est, vivere non est necesse". “Sailing is necessary, life is not necessary”. In our time we should say:
Sailing is necessary because our life depends on it.
