latin dipthongs "ai" and "oi" ??

How do you pronounce the Latin words maior and troianus?
Are ai and oi dipthongs in Latin?
If so, why are they not listed in the pronunciation guide of my Wheelock text??
There's no information about the pronunciation of these letter combinations in any of the grammar books I could find!!!!!

In Finnia duo libri in usum scholarum divulgati sunt, "quibus lingua Latina, haud aliter atque aliae linguae, vivo modo doceretur."

Italian sms

Hi all,

I'm not sure this question is on the right place here, but the all-knowing Benissimus advised me to post it here.

Anyway, I'm searching for a site on the net where you can send free smses (textmessages on your cellphone) to Italy (more precisely to send smses to someone whose providor is vodaphone), does anyone know where I can find such a site?

Philippus Moerus
