missing pages in Pharr?

Are pages 134-135 and 182-183 in the paper-saving version of Pharr missing, or did my printer do something weird?

Homer-L?

Recently, browsing the internet for things Homeric, I discovered a mailing list called Homer-L, which sounded interesting. I tried twice to subscribe, following the advice of two different websites (to the same email address, but with a slightly different body text), but I received notification that my mail was undeliverable to that address.

Does anybody know if this list still exists? And, if so, how you subscribe?

If you know of any websites that host spoken Latin audio clips, other than those I have listed, please include them so I can try to compile a complete list. I used to know several more but many of the sites have shut down. I do not claim that they are all great :] I am also not restricting this to Classical reconstructed pronunciation.

New to the board

I am just starting to learn and there are many things that are new to me. I have had some learning from a freind and we used John Grescham Macheans(spelling?) Greek for new testament begginers. after that I had some help from one of the proffesors at PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) and we read half way through 'ATHENAZE I'. That was several years ago. and much of what I learned then has been forgotten.

So ...

clauses of comparison

hello chaps, i don't think i've done this lot very well. I've been on drugs (legal) over the weekend cos one of the glands under my ears has swollen hugely. I've got a big uneven face at the moment. I havent been able to concentrate much. Anyway, enough excuses:

1. Although the Gauls were exhausted, they fought until the chief was captured.
quamquam Galli confecti erant, tamen pugnaverunt donec principem captum est.

must be something ...
