I am a professional geek, working in enterprise data systems. I fill the role of systems engineer, architect, developer, project manager, etc... a one-stop enterprise IT kinda guy.

I develop in .NET, MVC, and IIS on Windows platforms; on *nix I favor to develop in PHP with some Cake.

For database systems I favor MSSQL, MySQL, and I'm moving into PostgreSQL for BI/ Warehousing.

Security is near and dear to my heart; a well-designed security system puts a satisfied smile on my face.

Scalability is important to me; planning for the future is one of my greatest strengths.

Thats me! Computer geek extraordinaire!

comment Quick disconnects - cheap alternatives?
I ordered some. Still more expensive than I think they should be but 1) they seem to be quality stuff, 2) they'll do the job, and 3) they look cool.

Your link does not seem to go where I would expect it to.

Hmmm... still considerably more expensive than the garden hose brass disconnects, but also a manageable expense. I'd seen the camlock ones advertized, but I'd assumed they would be much more expensive.

This seems to be the ultimate answer for my question. The other answers were good too.

comment can I fix an oversparged brew?
Honestly I don't know. I'm not even sure the various protiens from the oversparged husks can be filtered; I do know it will filter some stuff you don't want filtered. That's why I say it's a ruined clone batch, but may be salvageable as a "MDMA Original".

Maybe (and this is a pure guess) try filtering it through a 0.5 micron filter? I doubt it will be like what you are trying to clone, but it might remove some interfering substances and then you could "tweak" it with some adjuncts. Just an idea. I consider a ruined clone batch to be an opportunity to get creative.
