I haven't been on as much because the apartment I've rented in my new city (until our house is purchased) has no internet.  On the plus side, I've been watching more movies.  And Steven Universe, my recent binge.

Happy Holidays everyone! I too hope to be here more after the new year, when things get quieter.

Isn't it quiet enough around here?  Or you must mean in your real life.  Happy Holiday's all.

So my daughter found a 50céntimos coin I brought back from Venezuela in 1994 and asked about it and how much it was worth. Well 50c is half a Bolivar, which when I first arrived in Venezuela was about half 1 US cent (the 50céntimos that is). I knew that Venezuela has had a problem with inflation recently so I checked what it is worth now. $AUD1 gets about 398 Bolivar, so it is now worth about 1/8c Australian. Not that bad, way better than I expected. What does it buy, ah it appears with a little digging I have found a problem with my valuation. Due to inflation in 2007 the Bolivar from my time there was replace at a rate of 1000 to 1 with the new Bolivar, so the coin was worth 1/2000c Australia, nope, hyper inflation meant that in August of this year (2018) that new Bolivar was replaced with the new new Bolivar at a rate of 100,000 to 1. So the coin is worth 1/200,000,000c Australian (or 0.000000005c).
