Little translation help

Hello all!

I'm new to this forum and I'm trying to translate a few sentences from a AngrA song. Here they are:

Salve ara, salve victima
De passionis gloria
Qua vita mortem pertulit
Et morte vitam reddidit


Unfortunately, I can't provide you any translation trials I have made, because my vocaulary knowledge related to these sentences is "ara" and "victima".
If you can't (or even don't want to) translate it. You could provide the meaning ...

Declension of Greek Names

Does anyone know how to decline Greek names of the type Echo -us, Dido -us? My dictionary has the '-us' in the genitive of Dido marked as having a long 'u', but not the other one, so there might be two declensions here. Gratias ago.

Top 3 of Loeb?

What will be the best selection from the Loeb series if you're to win the Ides of March Contest and you picked up the Book Lot number 1?

I don't even have the full list of Loeb series and do not know which book is the most worthy to have on your shelves and read in all the leisure time you have.

Speed up Acrobat startup

Acrobat 6.0.2 is really bloated and I've been resenting it since 5. I didn't have much to do today and I was poking around for acrobat hacks and I found this nifty trick.

My high school's language department is SAD. (long rant)

In the THIRD YEAR French class, most of the students can't do comparatives i.e. "La maison est plus grande que la voiture" (The house is bigger than the car) , and the teacher was harping about how it was so difficult to master. Excuse me? French comparatives and superlatives are easy compared to say, English, where one has to know whether "The house is bigger than the car" or "The house is more big than ...

Missing Exercise Answers to Latin Prose Composition

Salvete Omnes

Is there a reason why the answers to exercises 157 to 165, are missing from the answer key to North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition? I just double checked and those answers are missing from the key available here at TEXTkit. Any help that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Perhaps they were missing from the original answer key???

Vale for now

Brian

"We were born to lose"

Which of these is a proper translation for "we were born to lose"?

Nati sumus ut perdamus.
Nati sumus ut perderemus.

The first sentence relies on the fact that sumus is present, the second one on the fact that nati sumus is perfect. Which is correct?

There's a lot of irrelevant stuff on the second page - do a word search on "Achilles" to get to the interesting section.

Perhaps they may tour the USA.

Latin 'V'

Has anyone considered that the pronunciation of the Latin letter V, which we transliterate alternately as 'v' or 'u', could have been a great deal like the Indian semivowel? In Sanskrit and modern Indian languages, the liquid consonant 'v' has the sound of 'w' before 'a', 'o', and 'u', but has the sound of English 'v' before 'e' and 'i'. As we can see from the Romance languages, and even German, these two palatal vowels ...
