    Proof-reading this stuff after having stared at for hours on end during development is a nightmare :(

    I don't think the problem is so much corruption as the fact that we let them get away with it. Probably due, as you point out, to our collective five minute attention span.

    I have the impression that, as far as the general public is concerned, the whole thing's been very much forgotten about and the negotiations, such as they are, very much at a stand-still.

    They're actually quite simple to reproduce and quite a nice test of any simulator software.

    If you set the GFs to 30/30 (I think subsurface may limit you to 40/40 so use that), breathing gas to...

    Ok. So it sounds to me a lot like people live with "reset average depth" because that's what bottom timers give them, not because that's what they actually need.

    So resettable average depth is to stop the descent being counted in to the average? Ok, that makes sense.
