RANT against Stealing Site Content

My goodness! It's terrible that you would do such a thing! Why, if somebody were to contact me privately by IM, I would not be able give them copies of, oh, say, Anabasis or Homer that I already obtained in this way, thus saving them lots of time, because I would never do anything so horrid! <insert innocent angel emoticon here>


I'll be frank here, attitudes like this disappoint me. I'm not going to edit ...

Thanks

Hey all,

Just wanted to say cheers for the friendly and intellectual atmosphere i've experienced here for the last six weeks or so. I'm off back to varsity tomorrow, and things no doubt will be as hectic as last term when I didn't find any time to loiter on the board.
I hope you all have a good Jan/Feb/March and will be sure to return during the Easter holiday, when I have another five weeks ...

Voice records of pronuniciation in latin

HI, i'm new to latin and i learn from books.

For this reason I cannot be sure that my pronunciation is correct.
If anyone has voice records, links to voice records or anything of that sort that contain latin text reading (preferably a reading of the pronunciation chapter of a latin grammer book...) please tell me about it...

Thanks in advance,
Shahar.

greek fonts

I'm looking for a cool greek font for a particular purpose, and want to check out as many as possible. I already have the following fonts:

Spionic (of course)
GraecaII
PYLH

and possibly a couple of other common ones on my other computer.

What else does everyone suggest? Free or really cheap is best. I'd kinda like one that is a little scripty, like handwriting. Ideas?

Aristotle's Categories

This is the only site I've found so far that has a copy of The Categories in Greek on it. There are also other Greek writers from the classical to the modern period. You need to download the pylh font for it. http://www.pe.sch.gr/books/

principle parts

Are there any sort of patterns for the 3rd and 4th principal parts of the 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io conjugations?

laudo, laudare, laudavi, laudatum - 1st conjuation verbs all follow this model. Is there anything to keep in mind for 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io?

Or do you just have to memorize each principal part set for each and every verb?

Thanks,
Robbie Moran

Now that's a first for Amazon

When I order books from Amazon I simply assume that the classics titles I'm ordering are going to be delayed, and that any other more current titles will be on my doorstep in a few days.

However, from my order yesterday, the OCT Pindar has already shipped, but the quite recent "The New Humanists: Science at the Edge" has been delayed two weeks.

Amazing.

A Quick Translation Attempt

I'm trying to translate this into Latin:

"Since that day when Marius the Great defeated the Dragon of Ravenna, its spirit has ever protected our family."

Is this correct?

Ab die ipso ubi Marius Magnus Serpentum Ravennae vicerat, eius spiritus familiam nostram semper protexit.

Are there other, perhaps better ways to say "since"? or clearer word orders?
