Introducing myself

Having been lurking for a while, I have finally registered myself, and I should do the decent thing and say hello.

I am a lawyer in London. I learned Latin properly at high school (decades ago now), and retain an amateur interest in it, and in Roman law. I love Latin literature, and I go through periodic waves of deciding that I should read some some and mostly it comes back fairly well to me ...

COPYRIGHTS- Save the whales! - uh er~ Save the Grammars!

I ran across this link today. Evidently there are forces of good working against the evil of the Sunny Bono Act. We can do something, hopefully, to gain access to a huge cache of copyrighted information if this movement picks up.

Carpe diem, quam minimum credula a postero. (Horace)

Latin or Greek? Hmm...

I have a simple question, which language do you think is harder, Latin or Greek? I’m sure this has been asked before so please forgive me if so.

I ask because I couldn’t restrain myself anymore the other day and I opened up A Greek Primer and read the first chapter. First there was the beginner’s hurdle: the alphabet. I didn’t have too much trouble with that because I have had past experience, and then ...
