Greek Handwriting

I had learnt in high school a long time ago how to handwrite Greek characters. Some of them are different in handwriting than in printed letters. Does anyone have link where I can see the Greek alfabet in handwriting? I forgot how to write a few letters.

Here is the difference in the shape between the printed theta and the handwritten one. (It doesn't look very well, because I am not good in writing with ...

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

I am curious if anyone has read the Ancient Greek "translation" of the Harry Potter book. My main question is what is the level of Greek that it is written in, could a 1st year student understand it? Or does it take a more advanced knowledge to read it?

Not only could this be good practice but it would also be interesting to see what kind of sentence ...

I ran across αὑτηΐ a form of οὗτος.
I looked it up using Perseus and it told me it is
Nom. Sg. Fem. indeclform iota_intens.
(My quess would have been dative with the iota subscript being changed to adscript.)
I don't understand why they would call it indeclinable but I've noticed that with other words as well.
Now my request: Can someone tell me something about iota_intens(ifying?)

Crosby&Schaeffer/Anabasis vocab sets for Crosswire Flash

I know a lot of people don't use Crosby&Schaeffer, but since the vocabulary is geared towards Anabasis, this may be useful for people studying White as well. There is a handy (and free) Java-based flashcard program at http://www.crosswire.org/flashcards/

By default, it has various card sets for biblical greek and hebrew. I found a collection of vocabulary files for Crosby&Schaeffer and converted them to work with the Crosswire FlashCards program. Once you install FlashCards, just download ...
