    Maybe I'll muster the courage to step up to the plate one of these days. I have some time off from work -- yaaaaayyyyy!

    BTW you are holding your own quite well. I knew it was the manifold, but didn't know they were "hot stabs." Thanks for noting that!

    •  Hey... I could still be wrong. (2+ / 0-)

      Maybe Tomtech will jump in and tell me I've got it all wrong.  ;)

      Just seemed to me those were what he was talking about when he mentioned hotstabs.

      If I understand correctly -- though there was a whole thing about male/female couplings... apparently they're hermaphroditic -- they're what the ROVs plug in to the manifold (and other local junk stuff) to make connections.

      (I'm probably digging an even deeper hole... being more and more wrong by the second.)

      Didn't realize you hadn't done one before, or I wouldn't have asked -- sorry for any undue pressure.  Though I have to say, it's remarkably simple the way the Knights Template take care of the master documents.

      And hooray! for time off.  :)
