At 04:27 PM 3/7/00 +0100, Giovanni reared his head (aka kopf oder dumnkopf or is it DOOMEDkopf) from his spaghetti-bowl to utter, >Ron I can help him!!!! > >Many and many times ago when Feesh was not retarred, he did not send >7,453,619 flaming messages a day to scuba-L and he and J.M. >were good friends, I received the following good wishing messages: > > * Someday, you will pay for it.

Amazing. :-)) But, I'll be thinking about all those well-wishers when I'll be DEEP into the BLISS of Cozumel diving for two-weeks in a couple of days from now! :-) Your dearest friend Carl and I are already talking about diving plans in Cocos in 2001. Want to join us so that we can see how your AI computer works? :-))) >At that point I realized that some backup for my Air Integrated >dive computer was absolutely required.
