The shock of recognition! I remember reading that blurb on your HyperGreek
program, Don, but the name didn't mean anything then because it was before
I ever starting out on B-Greek. So it was you! I have a modest HyperCard
flashcard program that I've set up for two different Latin textbooks and
one Greek textbook that I've offered in the past to anyone who wanted them,
and even thought of submitting it to Intellimation, but in fact I don't
think it's any better or even as good as Mounce's Mac program which is NOT
based on HyperCard or as Mastronarde's, which I have seen. I might call
attention, however, to another HyperCard program for Koiné vocabulary that
I have noticed in the past and have looked at some time ago: it was called
"Priscilla's Parsing" or something like that, and I think it ought to be
found by searching AOL's shareware archives under the heading, "Education."
I don't remember the author's name beyond the Priscilla, but she was a
regular teacher of NT Greek.
