From my diary

I’ve spent today driving up to Cambridge to visit the university library.  My object was to obtain some articles by R.

From my diary

Home, with piles of electronic gear.  But when will I get time to set it up?  That said, being unable to use my main machine is becoming increasingly irksome.  I’ve been looking for possible Greek texts to get translated.  There’s a little pile of sermon material by Chrysostom. Most interesting of these are three items […]
