I continued my reduction of the magazine pile this morning and came across an article in “Housing Specification”, one of the free magazines I get, lots of adverts for materials, but equally, lots of interesting articles to read, mostly biast towards the authors company, but mostly useful, none the less.
One in particular caught my eye, was the article by Marley, on their dry roof system, I happen to like the idea of dry roof construction, to me it allows the roof to breath, and move without cracking or displacement of mortar. That said, each technologist should evaluate the materials used against the buildings need and the desired visual effect of the design.
Marley have put up a rather nice www.whydryfix.co.uk, that opens up with a rather glitzy video, but it gets over the basic points, but why make it a proprietary video, specific to the site, and not part of YouTube, !! Beats me, still the site is worth some time, the download is not bad, I have put it into my Evernote system for my personal search, I particularly like the plain tile vent, no more pipes sticking out for birds to nest in!!
You will be pleased to hear that my mac is back up and running, thanks to those nice people at Apple, now I await the insurance company to be equally as nice !!!.
The photo today is of another very nifty site called IFTTT.com, it allows you to set up rules, if the host site receives or does something then do this, I use it to send articles and mail to Evernote, if I highlight the mail, then it will be sent to Evernote, easy to use and set up, and it's free
