  • Re: FYI: Another Possibly Objectionable title on ebooks.noet.com

    It's a funny book, I was given a copy when my son was very little. More of a laugh for the parents than actually something you'd want to read to your kids: Please, please God, go to sleep.

  • Re: Missing morph tagging in new Loeb volumes

    [quote user="Butters"] The Loeb volumes are nearly useless; there are simply digital texts that one can get anywhere - but with jumbled/incorrect/missing morphological information, etc. [/quote] I understand your frustration, Butters, and I do get a little tired of doing quality control for Logos for free, but I think your characterization of "nearly

  • Re: Missing morph tagging in new Loeb volumes

    Thanks for the update Kyle, I appreciate it. You can add the Celsus De Medicina volumes to the list of resources to be updated to add morphological tagging. The Latin missing tagging too. And please do consider adding a new data type for Heraclitus. He's a major Greek Pre-Socratic philosopher, quoted by Luther and particularly important for the early

  • Re: Missing morph tagging in new Loeb volumes

    The title of the Heracleitus volume is misspelled in Greek, the final sigma has been ocr'd incorrectly as a capital epsilon. ΠΕΡΙ ΤΟΥ ΠΑΝΤΟΕ should be: ΠΕΡΙ ΤΟΥ ΠΑΝΤΟΣ

  • Re: Missing morph tagging in new Loeb volumes

    Also, I just noticed that in the Index for the Hippocrates volume, the entries sometimes point to the Greek version, sometimes to the English version. See the first entry of the index on ABDERA, I. 266, 268, 270, 274, 278; II. 187 The first five entries point to the Greek volume, the last points to the English volume. Same thing with "Amputation" etc

  • Missing morph tagging in new Loeb volumes

    I play a little game to see how quickly I can find errors in tagging, milestones, etc. on newly released Loeb editions. It took me about thirty seconds to notice problems in the recently released Medical Works of Antiquity series. (Which begs the question: if I can do it, why can't the quality control processes at Logos? ... anyway..) The following

  • Re: TIP of the day: from the blogs - using the Church Fathers, manuscripts and critical apparatus (think NT281)

    Thank you for this, a very interesting discussion. It's also interesting to point out that the early Vulgate translations used "Filius" (ie. the "huios" reading): Deum nemo vidit umquam: unigenitus Filius, qui est in sinu Patris, ipse enarravit. (Clementine Vulgate) Whereas the new "official" post-Vatican II Vulgate uses the "theos" reading: Deum nemo

  • Re: Why not allow users to modify book descriptions?

    No, sorry, I don't think I made myself clear: I don't want others to see my personalized book descriptions, I just want to be able to edit the description for own my personal use (much like the long and short titles can be modified locally by users). Alternatively, as Denise noted, I would also be happy with just having an empty box on the Book Info

  • Why not allow users to modify book descriptions?

    An ongoing pet peeve of mine: the book descriptions on the info panel tend to be very unhelpful. In particular for multi-volume sets: take the Sacred Books of the East for instance. I'm interested in reading Buddhist texts, so I go to my library and stumble upon The Saddharma-Pundarîka, a fundamental text for the religion according to the series index

    Bonjour Boris, Avez-vous essayé de sélectionner uniquement le mot que vous voulez chercher avec la souris ? C'est-à-dire lettre par lettre, en excluant l'autre mot : par exemple pour "L'Egypte", vous sélectionnez uniquement "Egypte", et puis vous cliquez avec le bouton droit de la souris ? Si vous n'arrivez pas à sélectionner seulement le "Egypte" dans

    You think that's bad? Check out the front page of noet.com, where these prices have been listed for months, despite being out-of-date and taking users to significantly higher "real" prices.. If Verbum is somewhat long in tooth, Noet is starting to smell bad. ;)

  • Re: Where is Socrates?

    I appreciate you taking the time to figure this one out, thank you Ben. I am, however, very disturbed by the idea that resources in my library were silently removed without trace or notification, even accidentally.

    Interesting, thank you Tom. I dug up the email about the project when I placed my pre-pub order, and it says there should be 179 books, not 173 as per the current logos.com listing. Your Pre-Pub Order from Logos.com Order Date: 8/15/2014 Thank you for placing a pre-order for Bristol Classics Culture and History Bundle (179 vols.) . We will notify you

  • Re: Where is Socrates?

    [quote user="NB.Mick"]If the whole package that contains them is greyed out, then this is an indication that you should have them in your library (the system recognizes you own a license to the bundle). Moreover, since you say they come up at Mark's page, the licenses are in your library (or were at the point in time you uploaded the file to the page

    My consternation grows. mylogoslibrary.com shows me a number of resources that I don't have in my library that are listed on Noet in the package that I own (but not on logos.com).

  • Re: Where is Socrates?

    Thank you for your responses Matt and George. Yes, I know that the Apology (and Crito, etc.) are available in Perseus and in Loeb: I use them quite often. I was looking for a commentary on the text, and realized that there is supposed to be one included in the Bloomsbury package (as shown on noet.com). But as Matt noted, the title isn't listed on logos

  • Where is Socrates?

    Does anyone have the text The Martyrdom of Socrates , edited by F.C. Doherty, in their library? I purchased the Bloomsbury Academic Culture and History Bundle when it came out, and so I should own all of the resources on this list , which includes the Socrates volume. However, the same list on Logos.com doesn't show the Doherty title, and the book is

  • Re: How Do I Reset the Font Size of My Entire Library?

    While this doesn't do what the OP asked about, you can quickly and easily change font size in individual resources using Ctrl+= to increase and Ctrl+- to decrease font sizes dynamically. Once you get used to the combination, it's easy to make quick changes. I generally use a smaller font on my laptop and a larger font on my desktop, and thanks to this
