Trying to Find Trajan's Dacica

As you might be able to tell from my name in the forum, I'm Romanian. Since I'm learning Latin, I want to read what Trajan wrote about the Dacians, who lived in the area that is now Romania. I found a few words from his writings on a site linked from the Latin Library. I couldn't find it on any other site, however. Does anyone know if this work is online in the original Latin ...

Gradus ad Parnassus

Would anyone think that Fux's Gradus ad Parnassus would be a good choice? I know that it is post-classical, but it gives a very different insight into Latin (and it's good for music students). What does anyone else think?

The Best Film Ever

No it's not Troy. Why is such a fuss made? Why do people even try to beat the classics?

Who is there who can deny that DEEP IMPACT is the best film ever?

Deep Impact like Jurassic Park always makes me cry.

You think I am joking don't you.
