Greek and Latin

I've set up my laptop so I can type in Greek! That's rather cool.

μᾶλλον ὁ Φρύξ.

I still need to learn where all those accent thingies are, but letters themselves match Latin keyboard, more or less.

Recently a Latin for Beginners was added to Project Gutenberg. Now, that I have access to a textbook, I can fulfil one of my dreams, perhaps. I need to first get rid of bad habits with regards to pronunciation of letter "c". It's apparently always pronounced as "k"; I keep wanting to pronounce it as "ts" (ц) at times.
