I'm not sure what to say, I'm at the mercy of a coder that has me at a low priority. I hope to have some news soon, I intend to make this happen, and I'm pushing as best I can.

An old Latin quote meaning 'Don't let the bastards get you down'.

Oft used by one friend to another when 'They' seem to be getting to him.


Other examples:

In English - Chin chin old man!

In American - Stick it to the Man bro!

In Russian - Davayte vtorgnut'sya v Krym, chtoby podbodrit' nas!

When this was first posted I googled it and discovered that it's not really Latin. Of course, the internet is
known to provide less than the truth sometimes. But this is what Wikipedia shows:

Illegitimi non carborundum is a mock-Latin aphorism meaning "Don't let the bastards grind you down". The real Latin language phrase with the meaning would be Noli pati a scelestis opprimi.

The phrase originated during World War II. Lexicographer Eric Partridge attributes it to British army intelligence very early in the war (using the plural dative/ablative illegitimis). The phrase was adopted by US Army General "Vinegar" Joe Stilwell as his motto during the war.[2] It was later further popularized in the US by 1964 presidential candidate Barry Goldwater.[3]

The phrase is also used as the first line of one of the extra cod Latin verses added in 1953 to an unofficial school song at Harvard University, "Ten Thousand Men of Harvard". This most frequently played fight song of the Harvard University Band, is, to some extent, a parody of more solemn school songs like "Fair Harvard thy Sons to your Jubilee Throng". The first verse goes:
Illegitimum non carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Illegitimum non carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Gaudeamus igitur!
Veritas non sequitur?
Illegitimum non carborundum—ipso facto![4]

The phrase is also used as part of a student painted crest on the bottom floor of Hodge Hall at Princeton Theological Seminary.

A wooden plaque bearing the phrase sat prominently on the desk of former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner.[5]
