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.
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.
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.
Just thought I'd see who you like. I'm a die hard sci-fi-er.

Roger is closely Followed by:
Orson Scott Card
