Motto translation

Salvete amici,

A company that specialises in software to use GPS signals for accurately locating objects on the Earth has as its motto:


Could this be translated as "Where we are - by the true method"? (i.e. using re vera as an ablative of means?) or perhaps "Where we truly are"? (is "re vera" ever used to mean truly?) or is there a more fitting translation/interpretation?

When and how Achilleus died?

In Odyssey Achilles is said to have died in Troy. And there's the description of his funeral. But there's nothing much said about the scene of his death. If he's shot on his ankle or heel, or in what situation death had come upon him to draw shadows over his eyes, there's nothing described.

neolatin and converational latin

Two questions! :)

1) I'm looking for an online lexicon of neolatin and have not been able to find anything useful. Any ideas?

2) Does anyone have "Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency: Phrasebook and Dictionary" by John Traupman? I'm wondering whether it would have some of the vocab that I'm looking for. What all does it cover? Does it include slang, profanities, technological terms, etc?

The young gentleman in the foreground is a character named "Pete" from an old Nickelodeon t.v. show called "Pete and Pete". He is not me, as some people have been led to believe by a deceptive bishop.

Gradus ad Parnassus

Would anyone think that Fux's Gradus ad Parnassus would be a good choice? I know that it is post-classical, but it gives a very different insight into Latin (and it's good for music students). What does anyone else think?
