Hello

Well, the Latin Forum FAQ suggested I introduce myself here, so I thought I would. I took Latin in my first year of university (majoring in Classics) and I inteded to take it all 4 years. It didn't fit into my schedule in second year and after that i'd just forgotten most of it. I tried to take the 200 course this year, but just couldnt remember anything after so long.

Conspiracy theories... not so stupid

I've often thought these conspiracy theories to be a load of junk, but in the last few years I've started to change my mind. Some are of course rubbish, but there is a bit or sometimes even more than just a bit of truth in them.

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... ...
