That "Thayer" is no Thayer! It seems to be the same data that was being 
passed off as Strong's before people started noticing that "Strong's" 
wasn't Strong's. It seems to be the Englishman's Strong's concoction from 
the Online Bible, plus a few bugs not in the OLB. (Take a look at word 
number one. You will see "2) Christ is the Alpha to indicate that he is the 
beginning a". It is missing "nd end.")

It does seem to owe something to Thayer. Where Thayer has a paragraph this 
"Thayer" has a phrase which is, or is close to, a word for word quote from 
part of Thayer's paragraph.
