Self study tips?

I've been studying greek with "Greek: an Intensive Course" for awhile now. There was an informal group led by a professor, but it dissolved...I'm pressing ahead on my own.
Does anyone have any experience with self-study using this text? Any advice on how to pace myself in terms of chapters per week, daily study time?
Thanks,
Andrew

Help Me Translate ? ?

I am trying to help a friend translate some latin phrases in a theological treatise by Theodore Beza. I am just a beginner though so my attempts are deplorable. Any help would be most appreciated.

My attempt is in parenthesis. Please guide me as to where I am incorrect.

Peter Pan

Just curious. Peter Pan is a name of totally greek origin. Is there a ancient greek translation of Peter Pan? If it is, is it in public domain?

Oscar nominiations

Johnny Depp has been nominated for best actor - his first Oscar nomination :D .
Apart from that the films nominated are ones I've never heard of, except for Lord of the Rings, which I hope will win.
Any one here seen Mystic River? It's been nominated, but I know it's not even been translated into German (and probably never will be unless it wins all ...

More composition fun

It has occurred to me for a while now that Sir Winston Churchill was one of the better public speakers of recent years. Let's try to put into Greek some of his well-known comments.
Something topical to start with a sentence from My Early Life...

Mr Gladstone read Homer for fun, which I thought served him right.

Of course that could be ambiguous as it stands but I think WC's intentions are clear.

the difference between perfect and pluperfect?

SALVETE OMNES!
I'm up to chapter 12 right now and it looks like Latin is just splitting hairs here...
So what is the difference between I have praised (perfect) and I had praised (pluperfect)?
Would it depend on the rest of the sentence? Like I have praised Apollo in the past, and I might continue to do so, vs, I had praised Apollo until I found out Jupiter was stronger?

How did I do with ...
