To those of you in school, welcome back!  For everyone, here are a few links that may inspire discussion as the fall semester gets going.

We’ve seen articles like this before, but it is always fun to look at the images.

London’s Telegraph has an article about the discovery of a palace on Ithaka.

And finally, let us not allow Tuesday’s anniversary to go unremarked: in 79AD, Mt. Vesuvius erupted, killing — among many others — Uncle Pliny

a gamer friend sent this link to me:

A year after a Latin patch for Legend of Zelda was released, now the original Final Fantasy is available in Latin as well, a nice boost for the language on top of all the other recent good news.

Legend of Zelda had barely any dialogue at all, but Final Fantasy had
quite a bit of it and even the fighting screen had a lot of text so
this is a much better way to get some practice in.
