Representing Greek

I'm sure this topic has been done to death, but I can't seem to read Greek text in this forum using my browser (Safari, using Mac OS X.3).
I have SPIonic installed. I have no problems using the Perseus site. I'm probably being obtuse, but perhaps someone can suggest what the problem is.

French and German movie recommendation

Ok, I need more linguistic stimulation from live languages. Language audio tapes are so lifeless. I've always been procrastinating with learning languages through movies. First I have to find a good video store with a good foreign language selection, then I have to find screenplays so I don't misunderstand any dialogue, and then I have to actually find good movies to watch.

So... do you guys know a site that has French or German screenplays? ...

Anybody understand Italian?

If you understand this crazy kaì fast-talking language, could you translate a T-shirt for me:

"...è facile tornare con le tante stanche pecore bianche, scusate, non mi lego a questa schiera morro' pecora nera!"

What does "dis" mean in this sentance:
"Dis meam fortunam committo."
I have no clue what it means, I don't think I've ever seen it before. I'm sure somebody here should know. Thanks in advance.

kopos kopon luei

In my reader there is a saying that goes like this; ko/poj ko/pon lu/ei
I think I get the drift but I am not sure.
Toil dissolves toil.
In other words doing the toil now prevents hardship later. Is that right?

The Words of a Math Division.

h(miseia moi=ra/ e)sti to\ e(\n toi=n duoi=n.I think this sentence means 'one (part) divided by two is a half part.
But what does toi=n mean.
And what is the form duoi=n.

Thank you.

Edit. I figured it out: toi=n and duoi=n.
Dual Genitive of the article and of du/o.

Help needed with this Latin text


Could anyone give me a translation of the following -- I have only just started Latin (still at the amo, amas, amat level), and this is beyond me, but I really need to know what this means:

"Quo docetur quatenus Coelestium prognosticorum significatione procedant. Et quod voluntas solius hominis propria illis nequaquam subjiciatur: modo sensuum titillationibus, & cupiditatum illectamentis non acquieuerit."

Note -- From a sixteenth century English book, so the Latin may be ...
