Miscellaneous Things

This page is more or less an index into all the random things that are on this site. I feel like the official index page is more of a frontispiece for the site, which is, I suppose, the norm for modern websites.

Anyway, some great places on the Internet (warning: many of these may have been created by me):

Some fun local resources:

As few may know, I like Latin. As fewer may know, I like computers. As fewest may know, I have applied both of these arcane arts to produce "pirated" .pdf editions of the Cambridge Latin Course textbooks: Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3, Unit 4. Beware, however: the vocab lists may not match up exactly. I have considered manually correcting them, but quite frankly, curating 48 vocab lists by hand is not exactly how I envision myself spending my free time. If you'd like more details on the technical side of this, see the Github repository.

On another note about Latin and computers, it looks like I'm not the only one! The other day, I tried out MIT-Scheme, a nice Lisp implementation, and got a pleasant surprise when the interpreter talked to me in Latin!

While on the topic of Latin and computers, I took a look at the source repository for Whitaker's Words. It compiled on Debian Strech (x86_64) with FSF Gnat 6.3. I packaged it into an AppImage (my first time trying that), so now I think it should run on most Linuxes? You can download it here and try it out.

If you've made it this far, you probably suspect that something is amiss. Perhaps you are convinced that there is some underlying conspiracy that drives the world. Perhaps you would not be wrong.
