    Thought this was an interesting article from DAN, particularly in respect of its conclusion on Dive Computer development.

    As usual, this is notable mostly from a total lack of any real conclusions. It's also crying-out for some decent proof reading.

    WTF?!?!

    The implication seems to be that this is a good thing, rather than a possible contributing factor. In my opinion, even 9-10 m/min is too slow at the start of an ascent, especially from depths > 50m where I aim for a minimum of 12-15 m/min.

    I've been a DAN member for 15 years but definitely not for the 'research' articles.

    Err, yes. So an air/nitrox dive to 104m is not a 'a technical dive'? If their research was to 50m, or even 60m, then I might accept that but to call 104m a recreational dive is a big ask!
