Latin tools for Palm Pilots


The screen an my old Palm cracked when the Palm took a nosedive onto the floor of a bus, and the unit has not functioned ever since. I have just picked up a new replacement (yep, I skipped the old "new" one I never made the transition to) and am now looking for Latin tools for my new toy.... stuff like Latin vocabulary flash cards, Latin grammar, etc.

Do you have any favorites?

Wondered if i could get a help with a translation?

Firstly, hi there!

I'm new to these boards, but I have read the post on asking for translations. so I know you guys prefer if we attempt translations ourselves........

The situation is that my fiancee and I are due to be married within 12 months and for the occasion we wished for a poem (as you can guess) written in Latin....

I have the poem here, in English, and this is what we would like ...

Glorior!

Jeff, and whoever else put it together, I cannot thank you enough!

I am currently working through North and Hillard Prose Composition while at the same time reading De Bello Gallico. I love it! The two go extremely well together and my understanding of latin is growing daily! Thank you very very much! It's great! :D :D

a question about "non"

Hi everyone,

First, I want to say thanks for the very helpful answers on my last question. I am back with another one, which hopefully will be very simple.

I'm wondering if, when you put non before several adjectives, it only affects the one that it's right next to, or all of them, or does it depend? Here is the sentence I'm wondering about (without the long vowel marks, sorry):

Fluvii Gracia non lati et ...

Don't do anything...

I am trying to write something for a colleague's farewell card, and rather than "Don't do anything I wouldn't do", I want "Do lots of things I wouldn't".
I have 'fac multa quae non faciam'. Is this right? I'm particulary unsure about the faciam.

Spanish book for beginning Latin?

I am trying to find a Spanish Latin grammar book for my wife.

I got her interested in Latin too, and I think it's a good idea to get her a few books so we can help each other learn.

My problem is in trying to search for a Spanish Latin grammar book. I keep getting Spanish Latin America from the search engines. It's frustrating.

Elephants

Episcopus, shall I buy a pet elephant?

And Klewlis, where do you get used classics books in Ontario? Currently I am looking around for an Oxford Latin Dictionary, and obviously, the new price (~$460 CAN) is discouraging. Therefore tell me of your secret haunts.

Simple question (I think)

I have what I believe to be a pretty easy question.

I've come up with a phrase, but I'm a real amateur with Latin. I know the conjugation is rather complex so I want to make sure I have this right.

I'm trying to say "dark land" or "land of darkness". Would the correct phrase be "Terra Noctis"? Or do I have the word-endings wrong?

Thank you VERY much for any help!

Advanced Grammatical Questions

i am right in saying that "quo facto" is an ablative absolute with a connecting relative?
Also, why does the future subjunctive not really exist (i.e. you have to use present sujunctive and future participle?)
How could you get a passive meaning of a deponant verb, like i was persued from inesquor, insequi, insecutus sum? Or would you have to use a different verb ( i know that deponants are passive in form but active ...
