7 C in August is no big deal. It happens in Greece every year on mountainous villages.

There are no mountains in the Netherlands.

If we talk about the Romans: today is the 2000th anniversary of the death of the first Emperor, Augustus. He died 19th Sextilis 14 AD (a.u.C. 767).

Exactly The line just means "multiply by 1000" The more lines, the more time is the basic number multiplied by 1000.

so the 5,000,000 would be V with two lines above.

Btw. a very suited joke about the situation in Ukraine is spreading on the internet:

"And now, our reporter will briefly explain you the situation in Kyjev, Ukraine:

- Well, few days ago a unique situation has occurred. Actors of maidan, who had no been satisfied with the aftermath of maidan organized maidan. Leaders of maidan decided to stood against the maidan and immediately arrested some maidan actors for hosting the maidan. All the actors of maidan, who went against maidan, were relased for the merits of maidan"

Yes. In the past, they used to write 4 as IIII instead of IV.



By the way, I've just had Latvian euro coins in my hands for the first time.

The original rule said not to use more than 3 equal signs in the same number. So 4 is IV and not IIII.
However in some later (Middle Age and modern) inscriptions and in some modern clocks IIII is used.

Julian or Gregorian calendar?

I know it is nitpicking but any anniversary from dates earlier than 1582 has a 10-day gap.

Another fun fact is, if there had been no leap year introduced, today would have been a day within March 2016 :-)

What would you say on SCS-RRA meeting proposal? I guess, the place could be chosen the way that most of us will not have to travel more than 450 km.

The Dutch section has meetings regularly, but that's a local section and Holland is a small country. Here I think it's a bad idea. Distances are too large, and although most of you are from the east we also have Americans and Scandinavians on here who will feel left out and won't be able to make it. People have jobs and lifes in all corners of the world. Nice idea but it won't work. But I'm happy to let you know when I'm in the area next and have a coffee with you. Also got a meeting planned with a French member soon.

Yeah I am completely aware of the difficulties that are inherent. It was just an idea. I am personally able to travel everywhere within 450 km. So if there would be meeting let's say in Budapest, Trieste, Vienna or Ljubljana, I would surely come.

It is hard because we have our families, jobs and it is not easy to manage time even for close friends which are in situ. I know it

I would come too. But I think it's just you, me, Cinxx and Verso who live close enough from each other to pick a central point somewhere, probably Salzburg or something. All the others (Holland, Sweden, Poland, western France, USA, Canada, Turin) live too far away, and I bet they will feel left out.
