I made a very simple vocabulary game in order to test out a method of learning foreign words that is based on combining the idea of a memory game and the concept of flashcards. I could very easily increase the number of words available in this program, but I would like to know it this approach is helpful at all.

Painting of Rome

About a month ago someone approached me regarding the origin of the painting that is displayed in the header of my site. To my dismay, I completely forgot where I got it from. I think it's an Italian master from the XVIII century, but I could be wrong. Maybe French? Most likely I found the picture on Wikipedia, but I was unable to locate it again. The original file is gone and with it any possibility of me finding out the name of the painter. Yes, I am not an art connoisseur... If someone could kindly enlighten me on this account I would be most appreciative!

I am extremely well aware that numerous people end up at my site in search for that perfect tattoo in Latin. As a public service, I would like to suggest a link to this little FAQ on the subject. My own advice, of course, is to be as cautious as possible. Or just get an engraved ring, for goodness sake :)

Very few things warm up my heart quite as much as nice pictures of home libraries. At present, I cannot afford allocating a single room for books and books only, but that would sure be nice! Naturally, anyone with a flair for the classics can very easily fill up half a dozen tall bookcases without even thinking too much. Let's see. All Loebs, a good portion of OCTs, some blue Teubners, major works on Virgil, an assortment of Sources Chrétiennes for good measure... Most of the basic reference books I already have: OCD, OLD, a bunch of grammars. I even have several nice bookends with Classical motifs... Maybe this day will come...
