    Rock Bottom Information

    I took my old post on Rock Bottom, added a few things, turned it into HTML and
    threw it up on my website:

    http://www.scriptkiddie.org/blog/201...tional-divers/

    There's more editing and expanding I want to do, and I haven't run it through a spellchecker again so there's probably typos. I want to put up something a little more complete on gas planning and management for the rest of the dive as well.

    Thanks

    I had not seen this before but it makes a lot of sense....

    No sequence of classes will make a good diver out of you, if you aren't actively diving and practicing in the meantime.

    Thanks Lamont,

    I'd saved your old post in a word file for reference already, but will relink to your html page as it's laid out even better.

    Good Job.

    Useless information for computer riders.

    Way back, was one of the first posts that I really took notice of. I actually had a dive light with all my RB depth & psi figures written on it.
    Just because you've done something stupid and gotten away with doesn't mean you're experienced.
    Nor does it make it a good idea.

    Since it is a reference document you might want to include a glossary.
