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.

Favorite author (spinoff from Current reads)

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

Roger Zelazny tops my list, his Amber series is my all time favorite series. On the whole I prefer his early work (This Immortal, Dilvish the Damned), rather than his late collaborations....when he paired with another author I think he put out some garabage (especially his posthumous work).

Roger is closely Followed by:

Isaac Aasimov
Robert Silverburg
Larry Niven
Orson Scott Card

Just stumbled accross this website while looking for some greek conjugation tools, I didn't think there was anything like it around. I'm currently a student at SUNY Albany where I'm studying latin and Greek. Unfortunately greek is only offered at the 500 level as an independant study and only if you have prior experience. Needless to say I lied to get in, and the prof didn't check. Besides studying these two I have minors in ...

Hello from a wet London.

I'm here to learn how to read old school. Well in this case very, very, very old

The Passion of The Christ

Now that it's out, has anyone seen The Passion of The Christ? Can you comment for us on the historicalness (outside of quoting scripture)? Was it actually pronounced in classical Latin, not church-Latin? Any first-century early-christianity historians here? I'm just looking for some good discussion on the movie, that's not just pro- and anti- jewish jobless folk venting... ;)
