    I am going to get the other tables in there... I think I'll work on the Naui next... then we'll hit up the Navy. I should be able to do up the nitrox for padi pretty easy...

    I'll also take a crack at having it just go through a day of diving, so do your first dive, then your surface, then do your repetitive... But honestly, I thought people would get pretty bored with that. My thought was as a training tool... people would want to learn to do first table questions... which are the easiest. Once you have those down... move on to surface intervals... also pretty easy. But repetitive dive problems always seem to give more trouble, and missing surface interval are even worse. So it was my thinking that someone would want to practice those over and over, and going back to a simple first dive question each time, before you can get to the repetitive dive questions, just seemed like busy work without much learning going on.

    So thanks for the input so far, and I'll keep looking at options, and let me know your thoughts!

    Thanks all!

    From what I've seen most people have little trouble working a single dive problem, it's the repetitive dive problems that throw them.

    Great job. I did find having a FIRST DIVE question that reads "it is the LAST dive of the DAY" a tad confusing. Last dive implies there were other dives and the question only provides depth and time in the manner of the other first dive questions.

    Good tool though. I look forward to the NAUI version.

    Ok... I fixed that, "Last Dive" thing... And now I have it so it will go through a series... It defaults to a first dive, then it does a surface interval, then a repetitive dive, then a missing surface interval as if you are trying to calculate a third dive. Then it starts you over with a new series, or you can hit the buttons to just repeatedly work on repetitive, or missing surface, etc.

    See if you like that better.

    Thanks!

    Ok, I just added the Padi Nitrox tables in metric and imperial for both 32 and 36%. I think I'll do the Naui next.
