6 degrees of Homer and Hesiod

As a follow-up to my previous post on the importance of laying a solid foundation in Homeric Greek for reading the SibOr:

(1) I came across an item mentioned briefly in passing by Chris Weimer at Thoughts on Antiquity that led me to

(2) the front page of The BibleWorks Blog where, after a little browsing, I found

(3) an announcement posted by Michael Hanel about a user-database of the entire Homeric/Hesiodic corpus that can be imported into BibleWorks, made possible (and free!) by the generous dedication of

(4) John Jackson at Handheld Classics, who also, incidentally, offers some excellent and compelling 2nd-hand advice on efficient 2nd- (or 3rd- or 4th-)language learning; and not only that, but

(5) a surprisingly wide variety of other user-created BibleWorks files by (no doubt) equally dedicated and generous persons is available here. It all seems too good to be true, and

(6) if this isn't also a shameless plug for BibleWorks, then I don't know what is!
