Can someone please help me translate this part from fabulae faciles?

Interea ea dies appetebat quam Iason per nuntios edixerat,
et ex omnibus regionibus Graeciae multi quos aut rei novitas
aut spes gloriae movebat undique conveniebant. Tradunt
autem in hoc numero fuisse Herculem , Orpheum, citharoedorum praeclarissimum, Theseum, Castorem et multos alios quorum nomina notissima sunt. Ex his Jason, quos arbitratus est ad omnia subeunda
percicula paratissimos esse, eos ad numerum quinquaginta
delegit et socios ...

Cum as a conjunction

I have some problems understanding when I should use the indicative and when I should use the subjunctive with cum. Wheelock says that it should be used with the indicative only when it's temporal (when, not why) and never in the past tenses. But a tutorial I read said that the indicative is always used when it's temporal and the subjunctive when it's causal. Which is right?
Anyway, the sequence of tenses only applies when ...

Sequence of tenses

According to Wheelock, the perfect tense can be either primary or secondary sequence. But when is it primary and when is it secondary?
Which of these (I bet it's neither... :roll:) translations of "He came to run" is correct:
Venit ut currat. - Primary sequence
Venit ut curreret. - Secondary sequence

General Question. How much time?

I completed a correspondence Latin course a couple of years back, using Paterson and Macnaughton's 2 volume "The Approach to Latin" and am keen to return to study.

How much time do people devote to M&F's course - an hour a day everyday? half a day? a full day once a week?

What have others found successful?

Thanks for any input.

Greek accent

I have a question about greek accent :

The accent of any word: Is it natural (being on a certain syllable like in Russian) or is it on a certain part of the word (like in a stem like in German) or is there any special rule (like in Latin or Spanish) ?

I understood the rules of accent putting and changes by declincion etc., but asked myself how to determine the accent finally in ...
