If we could get the keys to the prototype castle, I'm sure there are a few of us that would be willing to contribute code, test, etc... It would probably be good to spend a couple hours with Chip to get the current lay of the land, itemize the issues that need to be resolved, make a plan, etc., in o...

I have one of those "quicklink" carabiners that need a tool to tighten or untighten between my harness and my chute. (Not one of the little ones, but a big beefy one.) This is in addition to my main carabiner. Good idea... Note that not all quick links (and biners) are created equal... Buy a truste...

Late to this bbs party...
