Greeting!
Thanks for Your instructions!
I sent the letter to the address Bert has given. Then I signed up for the mailinglist at the link perispomenon has provided. Is everything I did correct?

Paul and William will have to approve the applications first. I do not know how long this will take, but it could be a few days.

Patience :-)

Erm, well, yes, it is. It is Sus Antigoon, of 'Suske & Wiske' fame, if it means anything to anyone. Well, it's a ghost actually, not a real man.

I will not change it though 8)

But Gonzalo, what is your connection to Ganivet?

I knew it was from suske and wiske but I didn't know the 'ghost' was male. (You sure cannot tell male from female using the nose. They all have the same nose. :) )

Oh, I feel so glad reading that. In Spain there isn´t a lot of people who knows about the giant Ã￾ngel Ganivet. I have read two (La conquista del Reino Maya por el conquistador español Pío Cid and Idearivm Español) of his published books when I was eleven and now I study his works with more intensity. I think he was one of an extended list of Spaniard thinkers -such as Miguel de Molinos, Unamuno, Maeztu, Juan Valera, Menéndez Pelayo, Séneca, etc.- but I must do an special mention to Ã￾ngel Ganivet because he was one of the men who didn´t agree with the disension, hatred... and wanted to keep the unity among men.

Toda la doctrina de Séneca se condensa en esta enseñanza: No te dejes vencer por nada extraño a tu espíritu: piensa, en medio de los accidentes de la vida, que tienes dentro de ti una fuerza madre, algo fuerte e indestructible, como un eje diamantino, alrededor del cual giran los hechos mezquinos que forman la trama del diario vivir; y sean cuales fueren los sucesos que sobre ti caigan, sean de los que llamamos prósperos, o de los que llamamos adversos, o de los que parecen envilecernos con su contacto, mantente de tal modo firme y erguido, que al menos se pueda decir siempre de ti que eres un hombre.


I haven´t lot of time to write. That is what I can say in two minutes...
Have you red, Adelheid, any by Ã￾ngel Ganivet?

So glad of hearing about someone who know him,
Gonzalo

I have a problem reading some messages. Where I must see Greek characters -in some threads- I only see "???????". I thought it would be because I hadn´t configurated as well as it has to be my Greek fonts. I am checking it and I can see that they are OK.
I use Mozilla Firefox, might anyone help me?
I am also having some troubles since I am here seeing the interface of the forum. For instance, in the beggining of the principal page I see an strange sign (like a sort of an interrogative mark into a rhombus) the word "Forum". Is it what I must see?

Thanks in advance and excuse my English -I am improving it as well as I can.

I've also received the message saying that I am a member of the Textkit mailing list. It is great indeed! :-) But I do not know what to do now. Shall I receive messages with the lessons or I must to find them myself? What messages has Gonzalo talked about? Thanks.

At this very moment I am reading the last messages. I think you can do it by virtue of going to the message which you received and there is a direction. I neither know what to do now.

Where are you looking? When you visit the main mailing list page at the bottom you can enter your email address and the password you set when joining. After you have logged in the archive link should be available to you.

The latest mailing list is "April 2007". Is it all right? What about the current one (May)?

There have been no emails to the mailing list in May. You subscribing means I can discuss schedules with you both outside of this thread, by sending emails to the list. The archive may be interesting for you, but not strictly necessary.

Now we have to wait for your GTSS accounts, so you can start posting lessons. I will see if I can get into touch with Paul and check the status of your accounts.

As I said, we must now wait until you also have the GTSS accounts. Did you also email Paul as outlined in Berts post earlier?

The mailing list will be of use as soon as you have access to GTSS, to discuss schedules, share howto's etcetera. For now, nothing will be happening there.

You need GTSS to actually post your homework, so that I can correct it. It is a website created by forum member Paul.

Some more info can be found right here.

You would be number 4 of the 5 I have set as a limit. So it would be ok.

We are waiting for Paul to create the necessary GTSS accounts. Did you also send him an email with your desired accountname (see above)?

Hi All,

Sorry for my recent absence.

I have added three new users to the pharr-d GTSS group. I now need to send them their login userids and passwords.

Adelheid, can you ask the 3 new members to private message their e-mail addresses to me via Textkit?

Thank you.

Cordially,

Paul

P.S. - see http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.pdf and http://www.greekgeek.org/gtssIntro.pdf
