As far as I remember it's 'Nolite tes bastardes carbonarum'...but I'm
not entirely sure about the 'tes' bit...dang, shoulda listened in Latin

For those that have been around this list for a long
time, there was a discussion about a phrase in latin
that, loosely, translated into

"Don't let the bastards grind you down"

My girlfriend just started a new job and I'd like to
get a desk sign with the slogan, but I cannot find it
in a search of the archives.

Anyone remember it or still have it around?
