is there a list of books you already have jeff?

maybe a running poll of books on your bookshelf which aren't already scanned?

i'd really really like sidgwick's greek verse composition if you have it. there isn't anything like that on the net at the moment, unlike grammars, prose compositions, commentated texts, &c. and u just can't get that in bookstores around here...

i'm hoping that if sidgwick's prose composition is public domain, then so is his verse composition... ...

Jeff, I don't know if you have it yet, but what about the Vulgate? It certainly is public domain.

Kuhner's Greek Grammar

I have an 1852 translated copy of Kuhner's Greek Grammar by Edwards and Taylor. Sorry - still looking for a public domain copy in German.

I'm seeking input about just where this book should fall in line with other yet to be posted grammars. We also have Hadley and Allen's Greek Grammar, Haldley's Greek Grammar.

Also, my knowledge of the famous German grammars is not the best.
Can anyone set me straight on what are ...

HELP! No luck finding software...

In case someone here can help me...

My new computer no longer comes with the free version of Kodak's Imaging for Windows. This is that tiff viewer program that allows you one to markup multipage tiff files. I use this program to move through the multipage tiff files and clean up scanner junk and book markings.

I see where I can buy it http://www.digitalriver.com/dr/v2/ec_MA ... CACHE_ID=0

But I'm wondering ...

A vocabulary deficiency and challenge

A phrase has been on my lips of late, and I find this morning that there's no way to say this in either Greek or Latin.

So here's a challenge:

Die, spammer scumbag!

My main interest is how to render "spam" as noun or verb in our two favorite languages, but I'd be happy to see the entire phrase, too. Accuracy is prefered to scatalogical excursions, tempting though those are.

Who has attempted to write Latin or Greek poetry?


I have tried and I find it relatively easy although I'm not a 100% sure it's all correct. I once read the old poets wrote approx. one or two lines a day, and Ovid topped that in his best days with approx. seven or eight. Of course, they didn't have dictionaries (didn't they? hmm) and the internet to help them out but still, I just wrote three lines in half an hour.
