Help, help! Dhimotiki/Greeklish translation needed

Can I PM some native speaker of Modern Greek email I got today? It's in Greeklish, but even after it has been run through this, I don't understand all the qas, stas and gias. I think I get "ellinikis glossas" so I trust it isn't spam.

Introduction and quick question...

Hi, everyone, I'm new to this website. I've been browsing it for a couple months and finally decided to create a profile. I've got a year of Koine Greek under my belt and I've recently started learning Latin, and I was just curious if anyone knew where to find John Calvin's "Institutes of the Christian Religion" in the original Latin in print.

Need a reference.

I read in one of my Greek primers that the imperative present establishes the "now" of the author's event.

classical all the way

How can I make sure to learn only classical Latin?
Medieval Latin is so vast... - I've seen from the size of the latin-portuguese dictionaries available where I live.

I don't even know whether the books I'm using to learn Latin are using classical or ecclesiastical Latin. Maybe they're using both.

To know of a strictly classical Latin dictionary would be perfect. I could check there if the words my books present to me are ...

A Word Problem

Hi friends,

I am interested in finding information about a certain word: macidus. I have met this word at school in a test which was a paraphrase of Livius. The context implies that the word is related to macies, thinness, and should be taken to mean thin.

But I am not sure the word even exists! I haven't found in any dictionary of classical latin - I have even had a look in Peter Glares ...
