Tintinnabulum tinnitus est

Hi, I'm attempting to translate "the bell has rung" into latin. Using my rusty school latin, I think this should be "tintinnabulum tinnitus est". Can anyone tell me, am I correct?

Goodwin's Greek Grammar

Just aquired this b/c it was interesting and cheap. I've got a 1951 MacMillan edition.

Any particular strenghts/weakness/caveats for this book? So far it seems to lack any mention of abluat (e.g. when dicussing leipw/elipon style verbs)

Liddel and Scott

What is the difference between the different editions? Is a non-ninth edition worth buying?

governing bodies

a coworker and I were discussing government this morning (great topic after a night shift! lol). She suggested a form of national government wherein we'd have a group of five co-equal leaders, each with a specific area of responsibility (finance, international trade, etc) in which they had to be specially qualified. These leaders would be elected individually (so they wouldn't be all of one party). This way there wouldn't be one person with too much ...
