This was sent to me by my old mate Alex whom I miss even to this day.

Stewart,
That questionnaire was sent to me by an old Civil Engineering friend. Through emails we keep in touch just as we do. I think it great to keep 'talking' to old friends. I have another in Canada who had to flee the country when his wife died of cancer - his mother-in-law was going to murder him and his two daughters.

I like your shed but are you sure it will withstand a gale. You must be hidden from the local council. Just make sure you do not upset any neighbors who could dob you.

I remember once when Eddy the Carpenter made a large pigeon loft as a foreign order. It was from scrap timber. I justified it as a job by calling it a remote instrumentation enclosure. See, just dream up a bull-shit title to cover your arse.

Everyone well here. I'm involved in an air cooling system using water. It is a bit different to your 'swampy' as it has a multi plastic plate heat exchanger so it does not pick up moisture to deliver inside.

The Physics people are playing with coatings (paints) that radiate heat back to space. I've made a small test box with aluminum on top over an expanded polystyrene box full of water. Over night it cools to a coke can to around 8 degrees, then water droplets form which stop more cooling. We have watched the cooling drop from 20 to 8 degrees in 10 minutes at 2:30 in the afternoon.

As for university Engineering it is in decline. It is full of Chinese imports who have no practical experience and cannot be understood in lectures - even the 'Honkanese' cannot understand them.
