Perseus question -- links to commentaries

When displaying classical texts, sometimes Perseus inserts asterices containing links to commentaries, and sometimes it doesn't. I was guessing that this must be customizable through the "configure display" link, but none of the options I have tried so far seem to have any effect on it. They seem to appear randomly -- sometimes they are there, sometimes not. Perhaps I am reconfiguring this without noticing it. How can a user enable or disable these links?

accent in infinitive "diakatharai"

Hi, Everybody:
I've come across the infinitive "diakatharai" with acute (7-th century A.D. text). I checked in TLG, and found some random examples with circumflex, but none with the acute.
Is the variant with the acute grammatically possible, or is it definitely a typo?
Many thanks in advance.

Tutorium "The Greek Noun"

Hello to everybody

Do we have here something like the tutorium "The Latin Noun" or "The Greek Aspects" referring to the declination of the Greek noun. Somethink like a quick overlook about this, a manuel, handsheet, reader or call it like you want it.

Thanks and excuses for my English (it's declinsion, but I hate this word: so german deklination sounds better.

Newsletter Editor?

Hey everyone, how is it going? I remember a while back, reading in an general email to people on the textkit.com mailing list, that we were looking for a newsletter editor. I was wondering if anyone has stepped up to the plate yet, because if they haven't I would be very interested in doing so. Please let me know, thanks!

Verse challenge: Paean on the new Sappho

In honor of the new Sappho (rather, newly pieced together Sappho).

Latin or Greek. Special points for using the meter of that poem. It's a hagesichorean expanded with two choriambs:

x -uu- -uu- -uu- u--

Sappho wrote in simple hagesichoreans, x-uu-u--, so that'd be fine, too. Just remember that though the meter is the same in all lines, the lines must come in pairs.

Unit Thirteen - Questions about the Exercises

Usually there is a sentence or maybe two in each unit that I simply cannot understand, but, in Unit Thirteen, there were several. I guess M & F decided that they had to raise the bar a little bit.

5. Harum sententiarum quae vera sit, deus aliqui videat.

I can't make any sense of it. Literally, it seems: "Of these opinions which be true, some god would see." What noun governs "harum sententiarum"? Is it ...
