Very interesting. Miles of thanks, kilometeres of thanks, acres of thanks .... and other measurements of thx.

Aha, the link about Australian slang doesn't work.

I've just been pointed to a neat site that I've added to my list. Ancientscripts.com - well worth a look.

Pretty cool. Thanks again for doing this, Max. The site looks better than ever. I smiled when I saw the disclaimer...and the Arsenal logo!

I notice that this page now has links to some charity sites. Is the page legitimate, or a scam of some sort?

Max's site? no scam from him, definitely. it is a privately owned page, after all. he may be trying to recoup a bit of the cost.

he's got a nice tribute link for Edmund Hillary.

Anybody know what the Latin on that page says?

Yes, that seems to be what it says.

right up on top of Max's list is Bartleby.com, which is an excellent resource.

a while back I got this note from a reader:
I wanted to let you know about ReadPrint.com -- a massive non-profit library similar to Bartleby -- except its far better organized and user friendly. We've been using it extensively in school nowadays -- it's great for doing research since you can search within the books.

from a glance, it looks pretty good.

I'm probably not in the appropriate thread here, but I'm a newcomer, so looking forward to communicating with some of you, and of course learning a lot. I saw a thread where some were discussing the place of the apostrophe, which made me realise I have come to the right place for help. You see, my grammar needs a lot of attention and there's a lot I need to learn in that area, so hoping some of you will help educate this mature student. \:\)

Okay, here's your first test - can you repeat this sentence without mangling any vowels - "Australia will win the next Bledisloe Cup."

As to 'grammatic ' stranger
at the top of the page. Welcome. I just joined in June 08. There is so much stuff here you will love it. The apostrophe
discussion is what got me started. Enjoy
