    I think I'd consider the safety stop as unnecessary if I was breathing on a pony when I arrived at it.

    I broadly agree with all of the previous comments. To clarify my thinking:

    1. A pony is only for use in an emergency and is not to extend a dive and nor is it included in gas calculations.

    I quite like Movie Maker which you can get for free from Microsoft.
    I made this movie from a recent trip to Crummock Water in the lakes:

    Quite a lot of services have failed recently because of expired certificates.
    Quite a few will be expiring in the near future.

    The OM-4 was declared dead many years ago by Olympus UK.

    For those that lived through the death of the OM cameras in the 80s this is nothing new. Olympus have form for shafting their user base.

    On the bright side, I bought a TG-6 just after Christmas....

    When the English language is shown by a US flag you're probably looking at the wrong audience.

    I don't have an SPG at all. Saves weight when travelling and I only have one high pressure port anyway.

    My compass goes around my wrist rather than tagged to a massive console.

    I know a lady in Mauritius that dives with syringes full of vinegar.
    She injects the crown of thorns when she sees one which seems to kill them.

    Not sure I'd bother with the extra heavy ones. Mine are just standard.
