English translation of The Decameron
10 storytellers, each telling a story a day over 10 days.
Written by Boccaccio (Jean Boccace)  around 1350-53.

personally, I hate the use of pseudo-folders, much preferring to know where I am in the 'real' folder structure. Having said that, I can force myself to appreciate why some may like them functionally. :shrug:
