Woo hoo! I got a new bed from a departing graduated PhD student. It’s not just some bed too. It’s a queeeeen sized bed! Below is a link where you can see it in its natural habitat, i.e. my room. It cost me $300 which includes the matrass but not the bed sheets, fitting, cover and pillow. You’ll see a couple pics with my old bed too, the crappy one i got from the landlord. >_<
Nice bed! not getting too lost and lonely in that huge thing?
spreek je snel,
4.5 times the long axis of the southern cross is where the south is. And you can also extend a line from the long axis and one perpendicular to the pointer stars (or something? those two bright ones, anyway), the south is then where the two intersect. 4.5 times the long axis is a lot easier though 😛
nice usage of the Dutch flag there !
To your question I have a simple answer: I dont. Well, I can find South by either using the compass feature on my mobile phone, borrowing the Garmin GPS from my housemate or bringing my fieldwork compass with me. Anyway there’ll be an update on NL vs Oz soon so watch this space. 😉
I had beter posted this comment in one of your earlier posts (about the differences between NL and Oz), but since people only read the last post (+comments?) on a blogspot, I put it here.
Thus… I actually had a question for you, being a real Aussie after the couple of months staying in Canberra! It’s been forthcoming from a little disagreement between the Perth Utreg Group.
How do you find the South using the Southern Cross constellation?
I hope you can help us out…
