Just had a leaky poppet this past weekend - about a pint in the chest freezer to mop up.  I attached a line with a picnic tap and disconnected the CO2 to that keg and - problem solved.  I've never had a problem with Cobra/picnic taps.  I use them whenever I am transporting kegs to a party or if I want more kegs available to serve than I have taps on my serving fridge (4).

Twice I've lost full kegs due to old o-rings on the keg posts. People tell me I'm anal about it but I change the o-rings with every refill.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Sorry to hear the bad news. I don't currently keg my beer as I don't have the room for it, but losing beer like that is always a downer. Especially when it was so close to being consumed. I feel for ya.
