    It's a good thing, and not important to the thesis but a nice thing that'l be useful nonetheless.

    Congrats!! Is the telescope a good thing? Is it important to your thesis? Haha

    It possibly is. =) Got to submit abstracts for talks and get things in motion but I have time for it.

    Found out today I get to use a telescope for my very own research proposal.

    Yeah, it's nice enough for us.

    Correct. Could use some more information being made available about some of these conferences however...

    Oh congrats on your lease!! You must like the place a lot lol. We have not really done anything haha.

    So if you get a good amount of money and did things right you could potentially go to a couple of conferences?

    Turns out we are to sign a year lease next week! \o/

    It's more that each source offers $X rather than Y trips given they can vary in cost. Each with their own conditions as well.

    Yes, this is true - depends what is going on I guess!

    That is awesome, I would go to conferences as often as I could get funding if I were you! How many can you usually get funding for, one international a year from each source?

    I am sometimes rather slow to respond to VMs too...

    I've done some work today! ;p

    I suppose it does depend on the landlord. We'll have to wait and see I suppose! In the meantime we will remain the best tenants. :B

    Well, sometimes ages and sometimes less so, but for the organising/hosting side it always takes forever. I've already did a bit of looking, including some yesterday/today because people start to update info. [There's a useful site for this, but most are not for my field of research.] The uni does pay for flights and accommodation! Mind you, there's a limit to how much funding you can get, but I am probably luckier than most students as I have access to a few different sources, e.g. CSIRO [& Space Science] as I'm co-supervised by them! Any other trips outside of conferences would be out of my pocket, but that's fine if the flight out and to Australia is paid for. =)

    Hahaha yes I am very slow!!

    Working from home feels so weird! I did it once, when no one was going to be in the office and I had no work so I just played fallout 4 all day. #productive. I am sure you're better then me though!!

    I have a friend who has been in his place for 6 years and never extended the lease after the first year... Lol. So I guess it depends on your land lord - I'd imagine if you are clean/not disruptive and pay your rent on time they would be in no hurry to kick you out.

    Conferences sound like they take ages to organise! Do you have to pay your own way or would USyd pay for you to go to Europe, because if that is the case I would totally start trying to find out/organise stuff ASAP lol

    I've been waiting for you to reply since last year! :V

    Working from home today actually! Certainly a perk. =) Both my supervisors aren't around this week, so might as well save myself train trips when I can do stuff here. Either way, plugging laptop into another monitor is pretty easy with how I have it set up, no shuffling required.

    I've heard someone else in that arrangement, and others with the lease extensions. *shrug* We'll see. Would rather a lease myself for the next year, going to take longer than that with the thesis at least.

    Teaching others how to solve problems then, I see.

    Depends when they get announced/I find out about them! After than it's figuring out if it's worthwhile, registering/applying for talks, arranging travel and etc via the uni. Last time I found out about a conference in a casual conversation in December, and only had stuff sorted I think in Feb...? (it was in America mid-March). Went to another in Melbourne with arrangements started/completed within a month from the conference, so it can be short notice.
