I have just seen the layout of Mike (Veitch) 's feature about shark feeding in the Tuamotos. Great pictures of Seb, Mike. It looks really good. Thank goodness they've got a proper art editor now. I had to fight the Fat American Slag (now gone thank goodness) to stop her only using pictures of turtles in my feature on Flying the Passes because she preferred turtles to sharks!

That said, I think Mike's pictures are among the best ever to get reproduced in Diver Magazine, no thanks to the Frenchies, Seb and Bertran, for risking life and limb eh! And thank goodness they've now got a bloke (Tom) doing the layouts.

If you ever think of basing yourself in the UK, Mike, I can see that then would be time for me to hang up my fins.

You will have to wait until April to see it on line at www.divernet.com.

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

Damn it. I was swamped by work today and then this evening I was occupied making a movie trailer for my birthday party. I'll get to the shops tomorrow.

If you saw it in Indonesia you must have a mighty powerful telescope. I only just saw it on the art-director's computer monitor. It has not been printed yet!

My bad

Then we need to give Mike credit for another article that is out. If I could remember the mag...maybe Asian Diver Mike?

I guess we have another article to look forward to if it makes it to Canada. :angry:

Hey Mike,

I bought a copy of Diver today with your article in it. Would you like me to post it over to you in Yap?

Looks great.
