As he rotates by 90 degrees it actually doesn't matter that much :)
Carsten had it mostly right, he rotated and then used the height value for the 
"x" coordinate.


rotate() rotates around (0, 0)

Therefore my mental shortcut is
- make the point where you want to rotate around to the new (0, 0)
- rotate

No need to remember how matrix multiplications work :)
