Spent the day doing courageous battle with the RSS2 feed on the index page. It is finally replaced with the brand new feed from this place! It’s so purdy! And it works! I only had to install a newer version of PHP. Once I did that though, everything fell into place very quickly.

I just finished copy-pasting all of the website-updates from the past few years that I hadn’t managed to delete. This shall be the new home of my updates page! And lookie! You can comment on the updates! I don’t know why you’d want to, but if you feel so inclined, go ahead I guess.

A luhta tálunyassë, pan apárien parmanen Amanya eldalambé! Parma Ñoldorinwai quentelion ya Micael nin tencë ná yerna ar mauya nin sá at-etécië. Sinen, parnen.  Ma mára len? Ahem… Well that was fun. Basically: I’m rewriting the outdated Quenya phrasebook that Michael wrote for me ages ago. In order to do it, I learned Quenya. As […]

We finally outdid our free bandwidth. The website is down for a few days while we move to a new name server, with lots more bandwidth! Pity it costs so much. Check out the Donate page if you’d like to help keep the website afloat!

I’ve added a new set of phrases for the Sindarin-speaking Lindarin Elves and the Woodelves. I also cleaned up some small errors that I somehow missed before, and re-translated a few phrases. I got rid of hanna– as well. Using it has always bothered me, but it’s so prevalent in Neo-Sindarin that it’s difficult to […]

One thing that has been delaying my making of a complete Exilic namelist is that I didn’t have Sindarin verbs made into names yet. I just finished translating a mountain of Sindarin verbs into hundreds of new Sindarin names! The Exilic names should go much quicker now! I’m also cleaning out the Qenya names that […]

The death of Geocities took with it many fantastic Tolkien-linguistics websites. I hadn’t done a complete link-check until now, and found a large number of the websites are now gone. How depressing! I hope they find new homes, because they were excellent resources. Novaer mellyn!

Some of you may know this already, but last Saint Nicolas’ Day, my grandfather died. We were quite close. He was a brilliant anthropologist and quite gifted at learning languages. If you want to know more about him, do a search on Frank Bessac. I miss him terribly, to the point of distraction. Anyways, I’m […]
