For those Lovecraftianly inclined minds...

Ok, the last warm and fuzzy was disturbing. A bit.

To offset this I bring you tidings of great joy and visions of a shining and prosperous future!

I just heard that Gary Gygax has passed away.

I have no words except that I am very sad and my heart goes out to his family.

I never met the man, but with his passing the world becomes, tragically, a little more mundane.

Oh man, I used to love watching Thunderbirds when I was a lad. I don't particularly recall this episode, though:

Ok, I got pictures from my last dive, but you know? I just gotta post this first. Anyone like anime? Japanese a little rusty? No sweat, it's got subtitles.

Man, Japanese kids must get neurotic. I mean really. Geez.

Sooo... Locking Quick Disconnect (LQD for this post) vs Bouyancy Compensator Quick Disconnects (BCQD for this post).

LCD= Industrial hydraulics suppliers, as long as you don't tell them you are going to breath through it.
BCQD= Any dive shop.

Edge: BCQD

LCD= Built like a tank.
BCQD= Built for diving.

Edge: BCQD

LCD: Compatible with forlifts and other heavy machinery.
BCQD= Compatible with most other diver's gear.

Edge: BCQD

LCD= Vendor may shit a brick and refuse to sell you one.
BCQD= Dive master may "tsk tsk" and give you a disapproving look, unless he has an integrated Octo/BC Inflator combo, in which you have him/her by the balls/short hairs.

Edge: BCQD

LCD= Huge, heavy, bulky, locking brass fittings. Very masculine.
BCQD= Small shiny chrome thing. Sorta small and faggy looking (by comparison).

Edge: LQD

LCD= Locking
BCQD= Non-locking (as far as I have been able to find).

Edge: LQD

Soo, I dunno. Looks like 4 to 2 in favor of the BCQD. And if I can find a locking version... then the LCD only weighs in in terms of mchismo.

My EXO-26 arrived today. I am pretty excited, and can't wait for the next job so I can use it.

That's not to say I didn't wear it. Oh, that's another thing entirely.

And that is all the news that's fit to print.
