Could use some help with a sentence...

I'm trying to translate this sentence:
Vos nobis de voluptatibus adulescentiae tum scripsistis.

I believe Vos is in the nominative case, but nobis is tough I'm not sure if it's dative or ablative. de voluptatibus I know translates to "from pleasure" because volu... is in the ablative.

Irregular Verbs

Hi all,

I have read my way through a few Latin grammars and they all offer lists of irregular verbs. Some offer a list of, say, 80, some have more than 500! I wonder what to do: what I'd really like would be to see a system behind it and only memorize the inevitable ones like fero - tuli - latus sum, for instance. Why learn both perficio and afficio?

Gaming Geekery

I've never been a big player of computer games. The "kill 'em all" shooters are annoying to me, and I'm not good at them anyway. But I do sometimes like the slower strategy things. I still play StarCraft erratically.

After years of dutiful service, my old computer finally had to be put down, so as of this week I have a new iMac. I decided to get one game to go with it. Based on ...
