My latin is not in good shape, this is obvious.
The famous sentence of Julius Caesar “I came, I saw, I won”, pronounced when he faced the senate after participating in the battlefield when he wanted to show off his military insight, is not written in latin “vini, vidi, vinci” like many say, nor “veni, vidi, vinci” neither, as I had in my two blogs: the correct latin expression is “veni, vidi, vici”.
I made the mistake to listen to other people, and also trust my poor Italian where the verb “to win” is “vincere”, but an Italian colleague, has warned me about the mistake in the verbal form, so I’ve changed the title and corrected it.
I’ve been thinking about making or not this correction for a long while, and I was not absolutely sure of doing it, because after publishing more than 1,000 articles, and the indexations of my blog in search engines like Yahoo, Google, Terra, Altavista, Alltheweb and many others, this change will definitely hit the ranking. I am fan of accuracy, so despite it is very possible and likely I get penalties, I decided to perform the correction.
I am also taking advantage of this message to wish you very happy Easter vacations.
