Tutorials Project

I'm following up on this thread here - I want to reserve the tutorial threads specifically for questions and answers. Maybe I should make a separate board??<br /><br />http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=703<br /><br />Yes, TWO in one day! Maybe next time there will be three!<br /><br />Dr. Biagio has posted on the forum, but I don't think very often.<br /><br />The beginner level tutorials are most welcome. I'm writing a Greek one myself about rules of ...

Apple iSight webcam iChat AV, anyone?

Well, I just got one of these in the mail, and was wondering whether there were any Textkitters that have both an Apple computer, an iSight camera, iChat AV, and an AIM account who would like to video chat?<br /><br />Apparently, the software is still developmental and there is no compatibility yet between platforms.<br /><br />Barring this, does anyone with a mac know of a solution for videoconferencing which allows one to talk to people ...

gildersleeve latin grammar on ebay at nice price

I can't use this book because it's a 1963, but the price is sure right:<br /><br />http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3553839393&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1<br /><br />The seller describes this book as in 'brand new condition'<br /><br />I don't know the seller - so of course - buyer beware! But it looks to be a great deal if there aren't many bidders.<br /><br />

Do you use book covers?

<br />This is a spinoff from Mingshey's mesg.<br /><br /><br />The color of the brown bag I like to use as protection wraps for my books. It lasts not very long if you carry the book quite often. But it doesn't fatigue my eyes. And the paper absorbs the sweat and oil from my hand so it's pleasing to hold the book.<br /><br /><br />Oddly enough, my current book (Latin: An Intensive ...

Curses!

The Open Board has today surpassed the Latin Board in posts. I think it's because all of those crazy off-topic posts are no more.

Voluptas effluit mea!

I just ordered my super expensive Oxford Latin Dictionary. I am so happy ;D<br /><br />Small print, large pages...<br /><br />It goes on for two pages just about the preposition "AB". It has words that most Romans didn't even know! It is the most complete source for Latin words (even more so than Perseus I think). Does anybody here know what a "phallovitrobolus" is? Or what worries me even more: why did they even need ...

Who is "the Textkit Team"?

I've seen that term used quite a few times while navigating Textkit, and I finally have to ask. Who makes up the Textkit team. Is it just Jeff and his high school helper or are there secret people behind the scenes? Is this some sort of alliance of super-powered Classicists? Just a thought...

Tribute to Glenn Hoddle!

I don't know it in latin (probably Quam homo or hominem or something - someone!) so I'll just say it in french:<br /><br />Quel homme!<br /><br /><br />Glenn Hoddle is the former manager of the England football team. He was sacked thence for his comment regarding disabled people: "You and I have arms and legs and half decent brains; because of bad karma working from another life". Debateable indeed!<br /><br /><br ...

Introduction of myself, Nancy,studying whites First Greek B

Hi, I just began using this system and I am quite new to chat rooms. I have been reading your messages and find them very helpful. I am from Toronto Canada, in my early 60's and I was first introduced to First Greek Book by White by my highschool teacher Mr.Lorne Smith. Over the years I have tried to study and often very frustrated by not remembering everything. One thing I have learned and that ...
