Latin to Greek translation help

Hi, I am trying to translate the quote from St Augustine, 'ama et fac quod vis' into classical Greek (in English this could be rendered as 'love and do what you will'). Can someone help me translate this? I am having trouble figuring out the correct word for 'do' and for 'will'. Thanks in advance.

For members of pharr-b, pharr-c, white-a, ktl

Hi,

I have begun work on a more comprehensive GTSS document. It remains a work in progress; I will continue to update it in the coming weeks. However, it contains enough useful stuff that I should point it out at http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.pdf or http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.doc.

Cordially,

Paul

Ancient Greek Alive

Hi! Hope this isn't an inappropriate question: what do you guys think about Saffire's "Ancient Greek Alive" as a beginning textbook? I tutor Greek sometimes & I'm really concerned to get a text that is good on the grammar, but also interesting. "A.G.A." seems pretty sound, & I love the bright (unstuffy) approach, and the "conversational" beginning. However, the use of real Greek texts & authors in the book is limited. May I ask (if ...

Athenaze

Hi all,

I've only recently began my study of Greek and I haven't really chosen a textbook yet. I was wondering if Athenaze is good book. Some of you seem to hate this book with a passion, and I don't know why as it appears to be a good text.

Thanks,
Deccius

Code Conversion

I am working on a project and I must find a way to represent Greek on a web page.

I gather Unicode is the best solution. If understand this system correctly, all characters, ordinary Greek letters as well as all the accented vowels, come in codes resembling this:

& #966;& #952;& #8051;& #947;& #956;& #945; (please ignore the spaces)

Is it correct that web pages with this coding can be universally viewed, even from computers ...

accent in infinitive "diakatharai"

Hi, Everybody:
I've come across the infinitive "diakatharai" with acute (7-th century A.D. text). I checked in TLG, and found some random examples with circumflex, but none with the acute.
Is the variant with the acute grammatically possible, or is it definitely a typo?
Many thanks in advance.
