Thread type for XSPC Dual Bay reservoir to connect Laing DDC pump

Im posting this for SEO purposes in case someone is searching google for the same problem i had......

So yesterday when replacing the Laing DDC 1T-Plus pump on my XSPC Dual Bay reservoir with pump .....the screws that came with the pump were not long enough to mate the pump to the reservoir correctly.

Do you think they have this listed in the specifications anywhere......noooooooo.

Ended up going to Home Depot on buying 4 different sets - the answer was M4-0.7mm thread x 25mm long.....ugh. (even though Laing pumps use a coarser thread eg. 0.9mm)

Hopefully google will find this and if someone else searches.....what thread type does XSPC use for their reservoirs to mount the pump.....someone will find M4-0.7mm thread x 25mm and save themselves a ton of time.....

Scotty from marketing is so small minded....it drives me crazy

Ridiculous claims in this article....the govt needs to open up places to foreign student as the Australian GDP needs it. As quarantine is user pays ....its ridiculous to claim there can't be more spots made available.


Foreign students will happily pay a premium to study in covid free Australia.. Small minds are what the real problem is in Australia.

Hotel rooms are empty in Australia.....there is no tourism at all in Australia....there is no need for more facilities.....they just need to allow more flights in instead of having restrictions with artificially low numbers.

The Australian economy should be booming....instead we have a recession.

The most frustrating part.....is we have this huge resource of being corona free......and no one seems to want to make money from it. Meanwhile people are unemployed/laid off/rents are down/property prices falling etc etc. It seems we only smart enough for digging rocks out of the ground for income.

Caramel Chocolate Cheescake ice cream

Dear Ben & Jerry,

.....I've "dated" a lot of different ice creams.

I'm not ashamed to say "I've played the field".

 But I'm ready to settle down and marry "Caramel Chocolate Cheescake"
...if i could only eat one more ice cream for the rest of my life until i die.

....This is the one :)

Election day "sausage sizzles"

Stores in Manhattan being boarded up for election day....... the juxtaposition of this with Australian "election day" sausage sizzles hit home hard when i saw this.

Life in 2020.....

The intersections of life meet.....the line on the left is for corona tests at City MD and the line on the right is for the UPS store to mail packages as only 1 person allowed in the store at a time......

Sigh.

RIP Eddie Van Halen

 Sigh.....


I thought of this ditty a few days ago while waking up. It seems appropriate here. 

Awake but eyes still closed. I realized my feet were extended, cold and bare, well beyond the realm of the quilt.
I buckled at the knees trying to stretch in vain the quilt back to its full length, to tuck it under my feet to re-warm my bones, to keep out the Autumn chill.
It was as vain as trying to hold back time. The march of time was persistent. Winter comes for all.

They've had laser/direct p2p for a while, but this is different.

I remember as a younger adult reading the Philip Short book on Pol Pot and being amazed at what human sheep can be "instructed" into doing.
