There were loads of people in the University Parks.
There were three telescopes in operation using filters and one with a projections screen, along with various posters and things.
The queues for the direct observation telescopes were rather long, so I just haddled around the projection telescope.
The weather on the Sun today is clear and calm with only a few small spots.
This morning I tried the old pin-hole camera trick to view the transit of venus.. I failed.
I could either get a very small image of the sun on which I could see nothing or a larger, far more dim image which was far too dim to see anything on. Oh well.
I think I’ll pop over to the University Parks in a bit to see if I can find the public viewing thingy they’re having.
OK, I missed spring, OK?!
This was the first useful weekend since Easter I’ve had the chance of doing much in the way of really good house work. It’s amazing how filthy a house can get when you have visitors and can’t get to do things.
Anyway, I’ve started on the mamoth job. For a start I washed out the fridge, the kitchen worktops and the tiles along with hoovering and stuff. I still have plenty to do such as washing the kitchen floor and de-icing the freezer though.
Saturday I also managed to get to the barber to get a hair cut. I’ve not had a chance to do that since about mid March so there was quite a bit to get cut off.
Other than those things I did very little over the weekend. On Saturday I was feeling really shattered through lack of a decent sleep since about Wednesday night. I was basically in a daze and forgot loads of things when I went to Sainsbury’s to do my shopping.
Anyway, today is the start of another week.. and the weather is projected to be unbarably hot. Oh well.
Well, I enjoyed the film and the food afterwards.
Grim, Holly and Matt all enjoyed it too but had far more to say about it ‘cos they’ve read the books, which I have not.
Anyway, nice evening out.
Now I think I’ll trundle off to bed and try to sleep.
Tonight I’m off to see the new Harry Potter film in Reading along with sleipnir_, reverendgrim and h0llym0nst3r. I do hope it’s as good as they say it is as I’m going to have to do some major rushing to get to the cinema by 7pm.
Oh, and by the way… Where’s the sunshine gone?!!!
Well, if you want to put linux on an Acer Aspire 1500 you can.
