Test Textkit's Latest Site Feature - Vocabulary Tool

Hi everyone, I could use your help testing a new site feature.

The vocabulary tool is a script which builds and emails to you custom vocabulary lists. Specifically, you can select which vocabulary list you would like to receive, how many words per list and how often to receive them.

This script is the first step in a large project where interactive vocabulary quizzes will be generated that test your vocabulary.

I would most appreciate ...

Posting Greek answers...

Is there an FAQ I should be looking at?

Can I post my answers here (specifically, ex 42)?

If so, what encoding do I use?

Thanks, and sorry if this is newbie cluelessness; I will put on my asbestos suit....

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
-erint

Whereas other books say the initial i is long, and so show macrons for -eris, -erimus, and -eritis. Without the macrons ...

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 ...

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? ...
