Heh. One of my paperweights is one of those barrel connectors used for
coupling two twinax cables together.

I had a good laugh the other day. Went to the local electronics store
to get a new backup battery for my home alarm system. Wandering around,
I happened across a board with various connectors displayed. There was
a good old twinax connector there. I was afraid to ask if they ever
sold any.
