NZ unveils Stonehenge replica Nestled into the verdant hills of the New Zealand region of the Wairarapa is the world's newest "Stonehenge" but this henge is no mere pastiche. Instead, Stonehenge Aotearoa, which opened this weekend, is a full-scale adaptation of its Salisbury Plain ancestor, built to work for the Antipodes. The aim of the Kiwi Stonehenge is to help people rediscover the basics of astronomy. "You can read as much as you like in a book how the sun and the moon work, how people use stars to navigate by, or to foretell the seasons," says Richard Hall, president of the Phoenix Astronomical Society which built the henge. "You stand here amongst the henge and you show people exactly how it works. To build Stonehenge Aotearoa, about an hour's drive from New Zealand's capital of Wellington, the society received a government grant of NZ$56,500. The astronomical society's volunteers supplied 11,000 hours of labour over the 18 months the henge took to build. Giants' shoulders Difficult interpretation

Contemporary Lighting - Euro Inspired Modern Light Fixtures, Ceiling Lights and Lamps - Euro Style Lighting Board Game Reviews | Drive Thru Review I read a lot of threads about being lonely, sad or unhappy in ge DIY Backyard Deck Tired of having no solid clean place to sit outside this guy decided to change his backyard a little bit. His backyard was identical to every neighbor and he wanted to set his yard apart from the rest. It all started with this concept drawing below. Here is the initial concept. Laying out the posts was a crucial part of the design. After measurements were taken it was time to lay out some chairs to see if the dimensions were comfortable. Digging post holes sucks. The post holes were dug 4 feet deep. Treated hardwood for the frame work and some beautiful cedar deck planks. Time to set the beams. He doubled up the main beam for strength and properly plumbed and leveled everything. 16″ on center with 2×8 joists may be a little overkill but this deck will last a lifetime. 70 plus joist hangers with 10 screws a piece = 2 broken drill bits and a sore hand. He ran into a slight problem here due to the house not being completely square. Some stairs like he planned. And how about a vegetable garden!

MovableType Successfully Installed on Windows XP To be honest, I don’t know too much about Perl. However, to make the best weblog system work – Movable Type, I installed Perl onto my Windows XP machine from scretch. I believe I am not alone to install MT to Windows XP machines – although I believe there will not be too many people doing so – so I’d like to record the steps for other’s reference. It is also a good resource for myself if I need to rebuild the server.

Black Bathtub Designed for Minimalist Bathrooms by Claudia Danelon and Federico Meroni - Homesthetics - Inspiring ideas for your home. Designed by Claudia Danelon and Federico Meroni, this minimalist black modern bathtub is included in the prestigious designers’ Beyond Collection, surprises most of us with one pure and sublime thing, simplicity. Clear, minimalist and elegant, we consider that most of the bathrooms in which the bathtub has a consecrated place are the ones with nature included , either by landscape or just a bonsai near the sink. Most of us see the bathtub like a block with a hole in it; in this case the hole is situated in bigger block and the shape is perfectly defined just by the bathtub itself. Also the simple clear and smooth shape is defined by a delicate line that contrasts with the tough aspects and roughness of the monolith block. Our suggestion to complete the interior with an amazing big window ,nature view or just some kind of vegetation inside, is based on the idea of attaching to the delicate line something organic which can either complete or contrast the whole design.

Screen refresh rate in Windows 7 does not apply the user selecte Certain monitors report a TV-compatibility timing of 59.94Hz. Therefore, Windows 7 exposes two frequencies, 59Hz and 60Hz, for every resolution that is supported at that timing. The 59Hz setting makes sure that a TV-compatible timing is always available for an application such as Windows Media Center. In Windows 7, when a user selects 60Hz, the OS stores a value of 59.94Hz. No action is needed. This behavior is by design for monitors and TVs that report only 59.94Hz but not 60Hz. This KB article describes the case in which a monitor or TV reports 59.94Hz. 23.976Hz, but not 24Hz 29.970Hz, but not 30Hz 47.952Hz, but not 48Hz 71.928Hz, but not 72Hz 119.880Hz, but not 120Hz Steps to reproduce the problem Right-click the windows desktop, and then click Personalize. The Monitor tab still shows 59 Hertz.

Table Linens - Linen Tablecloth Shopping | LinenTablecloth css Zen Garden: The Beauty in CSS Design So What is This About? There is a continuing need to show the power of CSS.
