Title: De Agricola militiam et mercaturam affectante: The Farmer aspiring to the arts of war and of business, by Abstemius

podcast update - technology

I've just returned from a vacation in Berlin and Potsdam. Lots of neoclassical and baroque architecture....

Today I went to Turnkey on the Charing Cross Road, and bought a new usb microphone to record my podcast with - a Samson C01U - a big clunky thing.



I recorded a couple of episodes, and then realised things were not quite right - after a few hours of messing around trying to get things right, I resorted to google and found the answer I needed on the Audacity pages on… Continue

Fable of the Day: De Cera

Title: De Cera duritiem appetente: The Wax, seeking to become hard, by Abstemius







Latin Text:

more on text/audio interference.

Hi Jeltzz,

Thank you for your comment below.



I think you're pretty much right, and this approach would suit quite a few students.

Latin Text:





Ulmus in ripa fluminis nata, siler sibi proximum irridebat ut debile et invalidum quod ad omnem vel levissimum undarum impetum flecteretur, suam autem firmitatem et robur magnificis extollebat at verbis quod multos annos assiduos amnis impetus inconcussa pertulerat.

Latin Text:





Leo laqueo captus in silva, cum se ita irretitum videret ut nullis viribus se inde posse explicare confideret, murem rogavit ut, abroso laqueo, eum liberaret, promittens tanti beneficii non immemorem futurum. Quod cum mus prompte fecisset, leonem rogavit ut filiam eius sibi traderet in uxorem.… Continue

Vir quidam, defuncta uxore quam valde dilexerat, duxit alteram et ipsam viduam, quae assiduo ei prioris mariti virtutes fortioraque facinora obiiciebat. Cui, ut par referret, ipse quoque defunctae uxoris mores probatissimos prudentiamque insignem referebat. Quadam autem die… Continue
