to iPod or not to iPod

Hi, everybody!

I want to buy an iPod 20GB (not the one that takes pictures) and the reviews on it have me wondering: this iTunes software, is it the only way to upload mp3 files? I read iTunes is integrated with some kind of mp3 store where you can buy songs to upload to iPod.

The reason I want an iPod is that I already have "ripped" the albums I own into mp3 files and ...

New Orleans

I noticed that there hasn't been a topic started on the subject of New Orleans' destruction by a hurricane, and the devistation of the American south. How are our resident Textkittens who live in the area? I hope all are safe.

various editions of M + F

Salvete omnes:

I am wondering about the (two?) editions of the book. The first edition (1974, ISBN 0520027477) seems pretty pricey, as used copies appear to be going for $98.01 on Amazon. I assume it is out of print. The 1977 edition (ISBN 0520031830) is far cheaper at $14. Are there vast differences between the editions, and is one preferred to the other by most on the list?

Homeric Greek group starting

I will be starting a new Homeric Greek group in early September using the newly revised edition of "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek" by Schoder & Horrigan.

The first 60 lessons cover grammar and then the text proceeds to readings from Book 9 of the Odyssey.

It is getting dark

According to my dictionary, the English phrase 'it is getting dark' in Latin is

advesperāscit (from advesperāscere, -vit)

I have not started learning 3rd conjugation verbs yet, but this looks like one. The questions I had were:

1) The entry in the dictionary was not listed in the 4-prinipal parts format I've seen so far. I know some verbs do not have all four prinicpal parts so that's ok, but now I am not sure ...

Saluete, omnes!

I would like to bring your collective attention to a subject I have been following for many years now, which has been essential in forming many of my more fundamental understandings of the world in which we live, specifically in the unification of history with mythology.

Helpful translation/dictionary program

I have found a simple console-based program to be of great benefit to me in my Latin excursions. It is called 'Words' and is available at

I have it at the ready as I go through Wheelocks. One can enter a Latin word and get the declension/conjugation and meaning, or it can also take English and give you the Latin word.

Sincerest apologies if this is old news ...

relative pronouns


I'm trying to form English sentences and translate into Latin as a way of practicing the use of relative pronouns. I would be most grateful if someone could have a quick glance at these sentences to make sure I'm not way off.


I seek those things which are good
quaero illa, quae bona sunt

Those are the men from whom I fled
illi sunt quibus fugi

the citizens of whom I spoke have ...
