Bug in log in procedure?

Hello,

This is a bug(?) report about a feature of the forums on textkit.

When I log in, I'm presented with the information already in the boxes and I must merely click the "log in" button to log in. However, there is a little check box there that says to always log me in when I visit. This check box doesn't seem to have any effect whatsoever. Can it be fixed so I can be ...

The Sound of Classical Greek

Hey everyone, I've been learning Classical Greek through the textbook, Athenaze, which for me at least, has been a great learning tour. However, I would like to get my hands on some tapes or CDs of someone who is reading classical Greek. I have the pronounciation guides in the books I own, but I would really like to hear the sounds. Does anyone know of a website, or some tapes I can order, or something ...

Electrified

I've just experienced an electrostatic discharge.
This winter I was being bombarded by e.s. discharges and I have built a habit of discharging in advance the excessive charges through a coin, which reduces the shock I get in the process. Just a couple of minuites ago the flash was seen when the coin and a nearby metal structure was a bit larger than 5mm(~1/5 inches) away. And I felt a shock at my finger that ...

Iliad line 5, pa^si or dai^ta?

Pharr says dai=ta, but I know that at least some books say pa~si.

Pharr also said that the Iliad segments in his book haven’t been altered, so I presume both words are acceptable.


Is this sort of thing common in Greek verse?

Books about Peace

There is a sentence in the Practice and Review for Ch. 7 which is causing me some difficulty:

Post bellum multos libros de pace et remediis belli videbant.

Benissimus' answer key translates it thus:

After the war, they kept seeing many books about peace and the remedies for war.

My problem is with the "remedies" and "war" part.

I assumed first that remediis is in the ablative, since it is part of the "de pace ...

[The] Box of Latin Words

I am trying to translate the above line in the subject. What I got was:

Arca verborum Latinorum.

Arca = Nom. sg. box
verborum = Gen. pl. of words
Latinorum = adj. Gen. pl. Latin (agrees with number,gender and case of verborum)

This doesn't look right, especially the Latinorum part. Is it a good translation?

att'n computer geeks

Hi,

Now and again I see posts on textkit by people who clearly have a lot of experience with computers, detailing this or that project they're interested in doing. I have a bit of experience myself, though I'm somewhat out of practice. I wanted to list some projects that interest me and which I think represent some ways in which computers in particular can advance our understanding of these dead languages. I'd like feedback on ...
