News and computer geekness in Latin

I knew Finnish radio did Latin broadcasts, but I didn't realise that they had a Latin news website too until communicator mentioned it. I wish my father (who taught me) were alive to see it; he was a classics scholar who used to chat to the local Greek community in classical Greek and taught me Latin in the school holidays. And I loved it; I've been left with an abiding interest in the Roman world. In fact, communicator, one of my unwritten novels concerns a world in which the Empire never fell.

The site has lots of interesting links for people more fluent in it than me, but I love the dictionary of Latin computer terms. Papae!
