Now that's a first for Amazon

When I order books from Amazon I simply assume that the classics titles I'm ordering are going to be delayed, and that any other more current titles will be on my doorstep in a few days.

Amazing.

Salvete!

Salvete, amici!

I was overjoyed when I discovered this website and its amazing forum. I love languages, but I just started Latin this past semester. Knowing Italian and German, Latin seems a beauteous synthesis of the two in some ways, bearing the Romantic loveliness of Italian, and yet retaining the delightful complexity of grammar as is also possessed by German. And yet it's a completely different tongue, with its own idiosyncrasies and organizations like nothing ...

Iliad & Odyssey PDF pirate version :P

Isn't the original Greek text in the public domain anyway? I thought it's just translations and notes on the text (including footnotes and all of Perseus' cross-referencing, links to lexicon entries etc) which are under copyright...

On the Matrix (from 'Nonessence' @ The Academy)

Only the first part mind you... you don't need to see part 2 and 3 :wink: .
I went and saw the Matrix which my mum and dad, so the people at the cinema didn't ask about my age and let me in anyway. But they don't check much anyway... I always got to see any film I wanted to :P ...

A few months ago, I found a web page where you could download, page by page, images of an old Hittite grammar book. Since it was late and I was tired, I was going to return to that page the very next day and download the files. I never found the site again. Does anyone know of this site, or if it is still in operation?

Languages and computers

On second thought, I'm starting a new thread for this reply.

A little 'aside' question; Why is it that so many classicists are also computer experts (or at least computer geeks.)


I'm neither. I can pretty well maneuver my way around online, and I can do most things with computers that I need to do (i.e., format a manuscript on Microsoft Word or outline a resume on Publisher), but calling me a ...
