Google Earth

A few weeks ago goole has released a stunning 3D map service program.
It's free and it shows up to the size of a car, though in many places the resolution might be coarser.
We could share our locations and 'see' where each other lives on the google earth and it will make us feel closer to each other. What do you think?

Lines in Catullus

I'm up against a bit of a wall for these few lines:

Catullus 1.3-5: Corneli, tibi: nameque tu solebas meas esse aliquid putare nugas...

I have a feeling it should be "Cornelius, to you, for /you/ were accustomed to thinking that my little trifles were (worth) something..." The thing that has me arrested is that /aliquid/ is singular, right? So it can't possibly be modifying /meas nugas/.

Catullus 5.11 : conturbabimus, illa ne sciamus...

It's ...

Easier Way to Learn Accents

I am studying Koine using the Machen book. I also have the Mastronarde Attic Greek book. Though my professor says that it is not necessary for us to learn the accents, I would like to learn them correctly. I've heard of easier ways to memorize the rules for accents before (such as using analogies with music and the number of "beats" per syllable) but I do not know where I can find methods like this ...

what's the Greek for "digital piracy"?

At the risk of becoming accessory to a crime, I thought I'd alert textkittens to the existence of a number of bit torrents serving Latin and Greek textbooks that I stumbled upon today.

question on the subjunctive

rogavere quare non posses quod ceteri fecerunt discere: They asked why you could not learn what the others had done (P&R 15 Ch. 30). But Benissimus has this translated as 'fecissent'. I'm not sure if it's just a mistake or if, much more likely, it's something I'm missing? I still have lots to get through with subjunctives.

Also is 'quod ceteri fecissent' dependent on 'posses discere' or is it an independent use of the subjunctive? ...

ante diem

Lucus sodalibus Fori salutem dicit.

No doubt many of you are familiar with the Roman calendar, which measures its months by counting "backwards" to certain important parts of each month; to be precise, the Romans prior to Julius Caesar used a Lunar calendar, each month of which was divided into three parts based on the phases of the moon: The first phase of the moon, the new moon, is called the kalendae, marking the first ...

Schoder & Horrigan's Homeric Greek

I will be starting a new Homeric Greek group in early September using the newly revised edition of "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek" by Schoder & Horrigan.

The first 60 lessons cover grammar and then the text proceeds to readings from Book 9 of the Odyssey.
