    For theory stuff, given high quality of the BSAC training materials, remote oversight seems fine. Isn't that like TI? For in water.... there is no alternative.

    I gather this is not a problem. Someone I know had this done a few years ago and is happily diving and enjoying the lack of spectacles. I can put you in touch if you want to discuss it with him.

    I went diving today. My rebreather seemed happy (I got a bag of scallops too) but my 4th cell was behaving oddly.

    I suspect cell #4 will soon be in the discarded and cell #1 (oldest) is due for...

    Maintaining the TDF tradition.......

    I am often puzzled that people 'need' a twinset. Why do you feel that is the equipment you need?

    why worry?

    if your Dell says 35Mb then be happy and use 35Mb. Will you ever need more? :OMG:

    My current (cheap) ADSL service delivers 11Mb download (just tested it) and it does all we need.

    Don't you have the same problem with the yellow party that propped up the blue party and got austerity running back in 2010? Or do you think that was a good idea?

    I also fail to see why going a bit deeper, with no change in equipment or dive procedures, requires an instructor. ...
