Catchup 2: A brief journey through January

Will add pictures etc... from January, but here is a little video from one of my summer jobs which was to move the search coil magnetometer from one of the cabooses to the Simpson platform. The sensors (coils) were buried in the snow in a 1150mm x 1150mm x 1150mm box that I built. I made the movie using my digital camera set to take photos every 6 seconds and then compiled the photos into this.



The other person helping me is Simon Coggins ex Halley Winterer and current Science coordinator.

One of the other things that I have done is cut off my beard. As some of you know I have been growing a pretty disgusting beard since Sci-fi night and have tried to take a photo of myself every night. Here is the result.

Hi Julius love the video it looks as if you were digging very hard.I managed to get it to work without any trouble this time.

So that's pretty cool. What are you using as a video editor these days? Still the same pirated software from Thailand?

Also enjoyed the photo of defecating penguin.

Fantastic video - I love the speeded-up teabreak about a third of the way in. If I took a photo of me at work every six seconds, it would be almost a continous shot of me looking out of the window...

Hey Big Juli, just wanted to say that your beard and hair growing video, which I have only just discovered, is bloody brilliant. I have watched it several times over and it is still making me laugh. I also like the porno tash you leave yourself with...Rod
