I'm a geek, a role-player and a biker.

I work for Diamond Light Source, developing open source scientific software for the UK national synchrotron facility. In the past I have worked in the robotics, mechatronics and laser micro-machining industries.

Sorry, I should have made it clear that I do actually want to be able to take the desk apart again in the future.

comment How to fix a window, keeping rain out but allowing wind in?
That depends on how practical it is to get to your sills. If a creature can get to my flats sills then they could certainly climb up to the top gap too. *8') What I have also noticed though is that with top gaps, wind blown rain can get further into the room than with gaps at the bottom.

I've also seen ones that open out/with the opening at the bottom rather than in/with the opening at the top.

comment How can I floor my loft without compressing the insulation?
@AndyE - That's a shame, it's always disappointing when you can't get hold of a product that would suit your purpose. I think if I were doing this, I would be inclined to make up stilts from lengths of 70x90mm timber, but it depends on whether time or money is more valuable to you. *8')

Updated due to B&Q no longer stocking them.

@AndyE - Have you tried contacting the original manufacturer? Also, a google shopping search found another similar product. All of this is white belt google fu.

comment How do I improve Pergola Stability?
+1 for the suggestion of tensioned metal cables. Four eye-bolts, two cables and two tensioners would add loads of rigidity and you can re-tension the cables whenever shifts in the structure cause the cables to become slack. You could even use the cables to hang lanterns or festive decorations.
