discarded toy from Textkit’s childhood

Here's a mistake. In the following ...

§341 page 147
II
1. Hostes contra spem nostram fugerunt ... (as a translation of “Contrary to our expectation, the enemy fled...)

... spem should be opinionem. It’s listed at the back of the book and is found in regular Latin dictionaries (contrâ/praeter opiniônem = contrary to expectation).

Anyone updating the Key? I doubt it. Nobody heard Mingshey’s appeal. Is D’Ooge a discarded toy from Textkit’s childhood? :?

I compiled the key, from the work of the people mentioned at the first page, as well as my own; but I don't have a copy left myself (I'm three or four computers on from that time 8) ). I'm not sure if Jeff still has the original Word document; I can't edit this one. I did warn against errors though :) .

Ingrid,

Thanks for your prompt response. Much appreciated. I guess we're seeing electronic archeology in the making. We are the fast-freeze fossils destined to amaze visiting cosmic kids aeons hence. :shock:
