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 ...

Hittite Grammar

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 ...

Germanic textkit ;-)

This is the germanic textkit. I don't know if this has been posted yet, but since mingshey liked the Old Icelandic dictionary, I wanted to share another link. :-) But the annoying thing is that you have to download page by page. However, there are different formats of the text too.

Charting out tenses in a time line

Latin: Pluperfect – Perfect – Imperfect – Present – Future Perfect – Future.

I’m sketchy about the Imperfect because it is a continuous action that can extend all the way back to Pluperfect, but what do you think of the placement in the time line? I’m doing this because I’m trying to make a mnemonic verb synopsis list. Pluperfect verbs would be verbs starting with the letter "A"; Perfect starts with "B; Imperfect starts with ...

Does anyone feel guilty for studying dead languages?

Do you feel guilty for studying dead languages? I just feel like poop when my mom asks me “what language is that?” I kind of lie and just say I’m doing it for fun and I’m not taking it seriously, which is still bad in of it self already because I should be studying something practical like computer science and should not be wasting my time. Luckily, I’m interested in live languages too, but that ...

Cleo's intro

So, we're asked for an intro, in its own thread.. Here it is.

I'm 38 years old (already??) stay at home mom. I used to be a software engineer, working in 3D animation software, used in special effects firms like ILM, and other Hollywood studios. So I went from glamour to diapers! My other specialisation is robotics, but I never worked in the field and I also did a year in theoretical physics in university. ...
