Thanks to the ever-busy Kit Baum: 

1. The existing package -njc_stuff- has been updated on SSC. This is an idiosyncratic package consisting only of two help files, -njc_stuff- and -njc_best_stuff-. (In recent Statas, you need not type the underscores and can use spaces instead.) The files provide catalogues of my own downloadable Stata code according to its varying places, uses and merits. This was written primarily for my own purposes, but anyone who uses my stuff might find it helpful. 

2. There is a new package -roman-, which supersedes the package -romantoarabic- posted last month in response to a thread started by Tony Lachenbruch. This perhaps is more interesting in principle than in practice, but one never knows for sure.

      from Roman numerals. The file roman.mata contains matching Mata functions. 
      KW: Roman numerals
