Server Move

You know me pretty well by now if you know that I move the Latin Lexicon server every few months. Hopefully this new home will last for a couple of years.

If you notice anything isn't working, please feel free to contact me at

I should post more news here. It might not be obvious from here, but I'm constantly making updates to the Latin Lexicon -- I fix something like 10 reported errors per week. I also add enhancements and fix bugs (and sometimes add new bugs). If there are any particular features you'd like to see on the site, again feel free to contact me.

1000 visitors per day!

For the first time ever, Numen has cracked the symbolic high water mark! Yesterday over 1000 visitors came to this site! You can see from the chart below the normal weekend/weekday cycle of the site -- there must be quite a few tests coming up this week!

Thanks so much for using this site. As you know, we recently had a lot of server trouble but I'm happy to say that those problems are all cleared up now!

For those of you who don't know, I continuously correct errors on the site. Although you might find an error now and then, if you report it, I will fix it as soon as I can. Thanks for using this site, and please share it with friends and family, teachers and students, in fact anyone who studies or has a love of the Latin language.

Server Stable

So the server seems stable. That's good news. Thanks to all of you for your feedback over the last few weeks.

I'd like to make small changes to the site and make it more usable? What would you like to see (including big bugs that I've missed)?

Numen is back up!

That was fast! Sorry about the downtime.

Numen is down for a bit ...

Unfortunately the website (and all email functions) are down for the moment. The server crashed! There is no ETA at the moment.

I know this is frustrating for you and it's even more frustrating for me.

I have officially started the search for a new hosting provider and will definitely be switching over to that new hosting provider within a matter of days.

I apologize for the instability of the site, especially at this time in the semester.

Server Slowness -- please provide feedback

Unfortunately, as some of you may have noticed, the server experienced a massive slow-down during the past few weeks that made the lexicon unusable in many instances. I'd like to apologize for that. As soon as I found out about it, I started working with the ISP to correct the issue. They were unable to assist and so I was forced to improvise. I believe I have now corrected the issue, but please feel free to provide feedback. In fact, if you have a moment, please send an email to or add a comment to this post. Please let me know how long you experienced issues and if you have experienced any issues since. Again, I apologize for this technical glitch and I appreciate your patience.
