  More cats!

Mere katter! Mjau, mjau ...

De bare satt der og ba om å bli fotografert! Den hvite er mamman, tror jeg, og barna ble født i sommer!

Dette er en hilsen til mange av mine
venner som er katte elskere!

Jeg har noen engelske venner som venter på en container. Joda, den er i Pireus, ombord i fraktebåten og lenger kommer den ikke.
Det er havnearbeider streik fordi det er snakk om privatisering av Hellas største havn og Thessaloniki havn, den nest største.

 

They just sat there asking to be photographed! The white is the mother, I think, and the others was born in the summer!

This is also a greeting to all of my friends
who loves cats!

I have some English friends here who are waiting for a container from the UK. Yes, it is in Piraeus, in the freight boat and there it will stay. The dockers there and in Thessaloniki, - the two biggest ports of Greece - are striking again port privatizations.

I found a story about the Antikythera ship wreck and the first known analog computer, here is what I found at Wikipedia;

"Antikythera (Αντικύθηρα) is a Greek island community with a land area of 20.43 square kilometers, lying 38 kilometers south-east of Kythira. It is the most distant part of the Piraeus Prefecture from its heart in the Athens metropolitan area. It is lozenge-shaped, 10.5km NNW to SSE by 3.4km ENE to WSW. It is notable for being the location of the discovery of the Antikythera mechanism and for the historical Antikythera wreck.

In October 1900, a team of sponge divers led by Captain Dimitrios Kondos had decided to wait out a severe storm hampering their sail back from Africa on the island of Antikythera, and they began diving for sponges off the island's coastline. Although in years past divers worked naked, by 1900 divers usually wore standard diving dressescanvas suits and copper helmets — which allowed them to dive deeper and to stay submerged longer.

The first to lay eyes on the shipwreck 60 metres down was Elias Stadiatos, who quickly signaled to be pulled to the surface. 
He described the scene as a heap of rotting corpses and horses lying on the sea bed. Thinking the diver had gone mad from too much carbon dioxide in his helmet, Kondos himself dove into the water, soon returning with a bronze arm of a statue. 
Until they could safely leave the island, the divers dislodged as many small artifacts as they could carry.

Together with the Greek Education Ministry and Hellenic Navy, the sponge divers salvaged numerous artifacts from the waters. By the end of 1902, divers had recovered statues of a philosopher's head, a young boy, a discus thrower, the bronze Antikythera Ephebe of ca. 340 BC (now in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens), a Hercules, a marble bull and a bronze lyre. Many other small and common artifacts were also found. On May 17, 1902, however, archaeologist Valerios Stais made the most celebrated find. When diving to search the area of the wreck, he noticed that one of the pieces of rock near him had a gear wheel embedded in it. It would soon be identified as the Antikythera mechanism; originally thought to be one of the first forms of a mechanised clock, it is now considered to be the world’s oldest known analog computer.

En gammel, gresk regnemaskin?

19.nov 2007 06:00 Av: Eirik Newth , Forfatter

"
For litt over hundre år siden var en båt med greske dykkere på tokt utenfor den lille øya Andikithira (20.43 km2 stor, ligger 38 km. syd for Kythira. Den er den fjerneste delen av Piraeus.)

Med ett kom en av dykkerne opp av vannet med en forferdelig beskjed: på førti meters dyp hadde han funnet et skip fullt 
av døde damer!

Det viste seg raskt at dykkeren riktig nok hadde oppdaget et skipsvrak, men at damene var statuer. Oppdagelsen var ikke mindre oppsiktsvekkende av den grunn. For skipsvraket var fra det gamle Hellas, og i tillegg til statuer var det rikt lastet med vaser og krukker, tallerkener, bestikk og gullsmykker.

Blant alle skattene fantes også en liten trekasse på størrelse med en bærbar datamaskin. Mye av det råtne treet gikk i oppløsning da det kom opp i lufta, og avslørte en klump med sammenrustede tannhjul og stenger. Ingen hadde noensinne sett noe liknende, og esken fikk derfor bare tilnavnet "Andikithira-mekanismen". Innmaten var i så dårlig stand at det gikk et halvt århundre før en britisk forsker klarte å begripe hva den ble brukt til."

Tenk hva man kan finne i havet!
Skal vi dykke litt?
