Maximum message size?

I am not aware of a recommended maximum.
I think you would have to judge the attention span of the average human (and then add 20% because we are above average :D )

Does anyone know about a book on Xenophon's Anabasis that I can get to begin reading the Greek which may contain the english translation with notes etc? I just finished a class in Attic Greek and I would love someone to recommend a book to begin reading on my own starting with Xenophon's anabasis.

Why is Greek so damn Hard?

I've been studying Greek for 3 years now and find it impossible.
I've studied Latin during the same period and I find it quite easy

Does anyone else feel like this or am I the only one slowly
going insane with Greek? lol
