    You need to provide a universally acceptable to the end user system. Email appears to be the lowest common denominator. Phone call and texts do not work for many people that travel.

    Do you really understand your computer, or is it a threat to you?

    And for those who like to connect the dots...and maybe give Uwatec computers a bit of credit... The co-author of Buhlmann's book is E. Völlm. https://www.abebooks.co.uk/book-search/title/tauchmedizin/author/buhlmann/ Enrst went on to found a successful company called Dynatron. Much later he...

    Backup regulators on dive trips?

    It likely depends on where / how you dive. As vacation divers we always have the option of rentals / shop / LOB units. We always have more dive slots than we can do, so bumping one is not an issue as we do not consider it lost. Getting old changes your perspective? We had a hose failure during...

    Wondering where your stuff from overseas is? Shipaggedon!

    Ok. But I am still very confused. My grocery store is still fully stocked. No exotic / imported food shortage issues. We have way too many Avocado... If food and lawn chairs use the same shipping system, why can I buy imported food but can't find a set of lawn chairs? If the lawn chairs are...

    Do you really understand your computer, or is it a threat to you?

    Yep. This ^^. Have the algorithm's changed? Or just the implementation of them. Maybe too many marketing driven adjustment grommets are now confusing divers? For basic recreational scuba I claim no dive computer manual should be required. Does anyone read the manual that tells them how to suck...

    Wondering where your stuff from overseas is? Shipaggedon!

    So how does food get here? Or there? Ontario grocery stores sell Californian and South American fresh food during the winter. How is that stuff transported? Last winter and spring the shelves were full of product.

    Ever wonder why your carry on gets searched

    I would not agree with your model about the visual selection by the airline agent. The airline agent at the check-in desk is responsible for enforcing the airline rules. Airlines do not control security. CATSA is responsible for airport security in Canada, not Air Canada or West Jet or Air...

    Ever wonder why your carry on gets searched

    Agreed. There is nothing "visual" about this program. The decision is made before anyone sees you. The US and Canada have a subtle difference in their security process. The US has an extra checkpoint after the check-in as the first part of security. In Canada this is simply a "boarding pass...

    Ever wonder why your carry on gets searched

    That now makes sense. You offered to take them off, so they said "Sure, go ahead, knock yourself out!" Do you have metal in them? If not then there is no need to remove them. None of my footwear has metal. I never take them off travelling domestic. They will only force you to remove your...
