ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Hmm, an electronic detector for audible grunts, shifting seat loads, and airborne volatile organics, to avoid "sick building syndrome"...

I don't think that I can quite swing that on our current Innovate UK funded research project, but I am sorely tempted.

However, I think that my low tech solution---open the emergency airlock (ie WC window) for a few minutes---works quite well even if technically adding some heat dumping to the rest... %-P

I can see how an oil film on the water would prevent gases from bubbling up, but fail to see how it deals with gases discharged above the water surface............................

BUT a quick-thinking cleaning lady used that seat first. How do I know? I married her (the cleaning lady's) daughter.

Apparently, according to her cousin, the Queen is good at impersonation.
