My textkit id is SAIRAM as well as REGUMREX69. I'm 82, retired. I asked my son to download Diogenes for me. In looking for some info about it, I came across your post. Would you be so kind as to let me have that TLG database? At my age, I should know better than to go around asking for something like this! But knowledge can be obtained this way too, I guess. I will respect your privacy. How can I get it? Please forgive my ignorance, what is "pm"? If Textkit permits it, could you let me know by email? I have two e-mail addresses, FREEFINDS69@GMAIL.COM & EVERNEW28@AOL.COM

Thanks a mil,
Sincerely,
GSG

Chairete guys! Greetings from Patras, Peloponnesos!

A member above talked about the TLG database. Well I have one version of the texts digitized till 2001), but I see that many many other texts are added since then. Do you know anywhere that i can find it, online...

WHAT!?!?! Amazing, I mean I have access to TLG for free anyway so this is just icing on the cake, really.

Υes, but you must at first get to possess the TLG data, which is not included in Diogenes programm.
You can also use with the Latin PHI data. This corpus is availiable for free. You can order it from the Packard Humanities Institute.

1) Can I get Thucydides for free?

2) Does LSJ and Middle Liddell come with it?

3) When I click on a word for a definition, what happens?

Thanks in advance.

No.

Yes, LSL comes with it, but not Middle Liddell. It comes also the Lewis-Short Latin Dictionary, and The Websters English Dictionary

It shows the lexical entry in the corresponding dictionary, in an new screen, or in split mode. But what is really nice is that you can read any Latin or Greek text without any other book ad hand, and you can find word definition in in the shortest time... You will love this I tell you
