subjunctive perfect vowel lengths

I'm all the way to Moreland & Fleischer's Unit 2 (whoo-hoo!), and have noticed a discrepancy in its Subjunctive Perfect Active forms and those of another couple of books I'm consulting (e.g., an old Jenney, I believe). M&H don't have macrons on the initial -i of the suffixes:

-erim
-eris
-erit
-erimus
-eritis

verba grassatorum

alright, since I have had no luck in finding an online dictionary and do not have access to a paper one...

Here is my list of the specific words/terms that I am currently seeking. Can anyone help?

There are a couple for which I obviously do not want a literal translation (eg "loose cannon"), but an appropriate idomatic phrase. So be creative! (Apparently I am not ;)

Trying to Find Trajan's Dacica

As you might be able to tell from my name in the forum, I'm Romanian. Since I'm learning Latin, I want to read what Trajan wrote about the Dacians, who lived in the area that is now Romania. I found a few words from his writings on a site linked from the Latin Library. I couldn't find it on any other site, however. Does anyone know if this work is online in the original Latin ...

Juvenal

Hey guys! It has been quite a while since my last post: school, classics... you know.

What do I have to look forward to?

I have ordered Mounce's book on the basics of Greek, it also has a CD that comes with it. I have not got it yet because I have ordered it off the internet and it has not come in yet.

I have been studying Greek on my own for awhile, and have even taken a little course on the internet. http://www.ibiblio.org/koine/greek/lessons/ How far along does Mounce's course take you? ...

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:

UBI SUMUS RE VERA

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?

Suggestions welcomed.
