Wayback Greekgeek Pharr Key has disappeared

Post by seanjonesbw » Thu Dec 08, 2011 1:55 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have a mirror of the greekgeek.org answer key for Pharr saved? The Wayback machine has been down, I think because the current owners of the domain have denied access through robots.txt. http://web.archive.org/web/200805290412 ... kgeek.org/

Obviously if anyone knows another site that I could get the answer key at, that would be fantastic.

Thanks,
Sean

Will Annis (annis here at textkit) used to keep one on aoidoi.org, but I believe he took it down because the greekgeek one was becoming more complete than his. Maybe you could contact him and see if he has any interest in reviving it now that Paul and his website seem to have disappeared.
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

All,

Yes, both I and my website did "disappear." I've been away from these boards for about 4 years now. The greekgeek.org website went away about one year ago.

It was a typically dumb thing: the e-mail @ associated with my website was, unfortunately, tied to the broadband provider. When I moved I could not keep that email @. Thus the registrar's renewal warnings never reached me.

In any event, I am pretty sure I have nearly all of the website sitting on my PC, and I can, at a minimum, simply e-mail lessons (html files) to anyone who wants them. In the long run, I would like to resurrect the website under some other domain name. Several months ago I communicated with Jeff Tirey about hosting it for me; he was amenable.

FWIW: I am also flirting with a new version of Ancient Greek Text Manager, one that would work with all web browser (and perhaps with all languages, not just Greek). I would like to know if there is any community interest in a new version of AGTM.

Kind of neat to be posting here again after so long.

Cordially,

Paul

Hello again, Adelheid -

Nice to hear from you, too. :D

And great to see that some folks from "back in the day" are carrying on at Textkit!

Cordially,

Paul

Hello Paul,

What is your new email address? I checked your Texit profile, but all it has under "Contact Information" is the old GreekGeek website, so I don't know how to reach you. I would like to ask you for a copy of your answers to Pharr's "Homeric Greek", if you could please provide me with one. I'm new to Textkit, so I don't know if there is any other way of contacting bloggers. If you see this message, could you please contact me at ninakochi@yahoo.ca? Thank you very much in advance if you do. Thank you for creating this answer key! :)

Kindest regards,

Nina

Yes, Paul, I for one am definitely interested in an updated, renewed AGTM.

And I now know why my attempts at contact last year over the 'old' AGTM issues I had went nowhere. :)

It appears to be down again. Does anyone have another link or a saved copy?

I have my own (corrected) lessons from the Pharr-B group. Would that help you?

I just finished printing Pharr, and would love a link to the answer key as well! I've been working my way through Assimil for the past month, but I think I need something more rigorous at this point.

I have my own (corrected) exercises om my laptop, it's not something I can give you a link to. If you want it, you could send me a direct message with you email address.

Thanks, Adelheid! I got those in the mail.

Someone else was able to access the Geek Greek answer key using Way Back, and sent copies of all the pages. I formatted them and saved it as a pdf. If anyone wants them, I have it on my google drive account:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8zg0Ww ... p0STg/edit

And on dropbox:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/35412506/Pharr ... %20Key.pdf


I assume these are public domain; if not, let me know and I'll take them down!

Kanewai…thank you! (And Adelheid and Paul, too.) I decided to do a another run through Pharr and this helps like you would not believe.

Danke!
