Hello Ian!

You remind me that there is still a radio telescope on my to-do-list: Effelsberg telescope inside an Eifel valley, with a 100 m diameter, just 50 kms from here.
Unfortunately, the LOFAR array at Effelsberg was damaged by the recent floodings, and the common roads to access Effelsberg seem not available. The present number of victims is 139, and very much infrastructure has completely disappeared.
I understand this one has a diameter of 64 m and used to be the largest radio telescope of the southern hemisphere then. Valuable document, despite a sky like lead.

Regards from Rhineland

Default To foxy: What language do the Chinese in Brunei speak?

Thank you Loong,

I'm sorry but I can't answer your question from personal experience.

But Wikipedia says:

'The Chinese minority in Brunei speaks a number of Chinese varieties.
The main varieties of Chinese spoken include Hokkien, Cantonese and Hakka.

Mandarin is the language of instruction in some Chinese schools, and there are also some radio broadcasts in Mandarin.
Mandarin is also used as the lingua franca among the Chinese community.'

Kind regards,
