Si - whilst I do agree with most of your points Pillock's actions, even if a little late, make it clear that such levels of personal abuse aren't acceptable.

 

So I've liked both your posts.  Hope that's ok!

Yeah, the sidelight is a separate little thing which piggybacks on the connector.

oh very interesting :)

 

I noticed there looks to be holes on each side, I wonder how much light gets lost through the unused hole...
