Hello from the Far East

I just happened upon this site (with a great deal of luck!) yesterday or so, and I figured I would drop in and introduce myself to everybody. I must preface myself, as I have not spoken English with another fluent individual in almost two months now, I beg your pardon if I make a few grammatical errors here or there.

I'm an American student currently studying abroad in Japan, and in the English section of ...

Dreaming in a foreign language.

I almost forgot this. But the smell of a cup of coffee I just got from a vending machine (yeah, I'm a caffeine dope) got the dream resurface:

I met a few members of textkit(alas, I cannot remember who were there) and, with them, was discussing about the pronunciation of Ancient Greek last night(or was it a few days ago?). And I was discussing it in English.
I have a very limited experience of talking ...

PDF Problem

I was just trying to download Latin Prose Composition by North and Hillard, and the PDF came up with totally blank pages. I downloaded it again just to make sure, and the same happened. It doesn't seem to happen with any of the other PDFs; maybe the new compression didn't work for the North and Hillard Composition?

Until then, salvete!

Medicine

Server move today

hi everyone, just a quick note that I'll be moving Textkit to a new server today. The move should happen pretty transparently, but if you should spot some oddities - that's why.

thanks,
jeff

kiss those massive PDF files goodbye!

I'm demoing Adobe Acrobat 6.0 to test out the much talked about (in PDF circles) adaptive compression. It's the real deal! With very little image loss PDF files can be compressed over 50%!

There is one small catch, adaptive compression required Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and above.

I'm currently reprocessing ALL Textkit files starting with the largest and working my way down.

Smyth - Was 41 MB - now only 16 MB. All the other ...

Pretzel Alert: GWB falls off bike.

George W. Bush falls off bike Saturday afternoon...suffers abrasions to his face, right hand and both knees. :(

Told about Bush's mishap, John Kerry replied, "Did the training wheels fall off?"

Peter

P.S. Ride safely. Don't drink and ride (especially while eating pretzels)!
