Nebra Disc

This isn't exactly breaking news, but I was sent this link in a Bronze Age Mailing List:

Starting Anew

Well, two days ago some hackors thought it would be funny to deface my forum. I can't say that I wasn't warned about phpBB, but I guess I learned my lesson about that, so I totally revamped my site. Tonight I'm releasing it to the public. Tell me what you guys think about it

Vale! - Hello from Portugal!

Hello to all members! My name is Luís, and I study
classical philology ("Linguas e Literaturas Clássicas",
as we call it here) at the Faculdade de Letras da
Universidade de Lisboa. I'm on my third year now.
It's great to be in a place where so many people
share this common interest for classical culture, so
I think I will have a good time!

Salvete! :D

I've only had my German dictionary for about 2 years and the hard cover is getting loose and starting to rip apart. I just recieved my French dictionary and it's in worse condition that my German dictionary. Unfortunately, it wasn't shipped very well. No fun bubble wrap or anything of the ...
