Use of "-que" vs. "et"

Are they interchangeable? Do they have different contexts? It seems like the classical authors use "-que" a lot more than "et"

Latin at Wikipedia.org: Is it any good?

http://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagina_prima, There is a Latin version of the Free Encyclopedia, Wikipedia in Latin. Can someone tell me if the Latin there is "proper Latin" because if afraid that if it isn't and I read too much there, I might assimilate some of the poor Latin.

Any other good Latin forums?

Are there any other good Latin forums like this one? There's one on phrasebase, but it's pretty much inactive.

Introduction and quick question...

Hi, everyone, I'm new to this website. I've been browsing it for a couple months and finally decided to create a profile. I've got a year of Koine Greek under my belt and I've recently started learning Latin, and I was just curious if anyone knew where to find John Calvin's "Institutes of the Christian Religion" in the original Latin in print.

Need a reference.

I read in one of my Greek primers that the imperative present establishes the "now" of the author's event.

First - is it true?

classical all the way

How can I make sure to learn only classical Latin?
Medieval Latin is so vast... - I've seen from the size of the latin-portuguese dictionaries available where I live.

I don't even know whether the books I'm using to learn Latin are using classical or ecclesiastical Latin. Maybe they're using both.
