An Encomium of Oxford

Following on from Why Latin?, Episcopus and Keesa both asked about Oxford.

Latin Winamp Skins

This is a spinoff from Profile Language Pack, http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=432<br /><br /><br />I have Latin skins for WinAmp, but I can't figure out how to install them :-\<br /><br /><br />What does this look like? Menu and Controls are in Latin too? Where did you get it from?<br /><br />I think you just create a directory for your new Skin, and place it under the WinAmp\Skins directory.

Profile Language Pack

<br />There's a little section near the bottom of Profile editing called "Language Pack You Wish to Use". Does anyone know what it means? Is there any difference viewing this website when you choose Dutch, German or Finish? Why aren't other languages offered as options?<br /><br />

"Just D'Ooge It" (From Prospecting in Used Booksto
