Hey all, it's Nick Hope's big bad birthday today. He won't see this for awhile, he's probably out getting stewed and having himself a Thai massage.

I'm starting to feel like the Queen now. The weather's good so why not have an extra birthday!

Pakman, I told them it was my birthday and they came to me. And I didn't even have to ask for a happy ending :D

Cerianthus, the camera's still dead. I'm hoping someone's going to chip in with a new one for me. There's still 4 hours of my "birthday" left.

p.s. Happy birthday Nick Jackson (NickJ) :) We all miss you. Have you been eaten by a great white?

Just got back from a shoot in the Socorros and missed all the frivolity here. I thought I was congratulating Nick Hope, but maybe it was Saint Nick after all. I don't know what's up or down anymore. At any rate, I hope someone had a happy ending.

Ta DAAAH! this is the real Nick!! AND it was my birthday yesterday :) - and hi Nick Bubblevision - long time .....

I have been MIA since leaving Singapore in 2008. Lots of adventures since then - including incapacitation though (alcohol?) Achilles tendon rupture - but mostly on dry land. HOWEVER, getting back into diving and video/photography now.

I'm based in Queensland's 'Sunshine Coast' and have dived the wreck of the HMAS Brisbane mutiple times to get back in the mood. My 'old' Sony FX1 and Bluefin Housing is feeling terribly low tech and veeery heavy these days...

We're off to Misool in March for nearly a month's diving, and I'm thinking of buying the GoPro Hero3 for fun/ease of transport. Been reading some good reviews though it seems I'd be stuck with a fixed focus. Certainly would hit the spot re ease of packing, but maybe I'm missing something. Any major negatives??

Good to be back on WP - come dive Queensland and N NSW with me - raggies galore at SW Rocks, Julian Rocks (Byron), Wolf Rock etc etc

Well I still remember you fixing the PCB on the L&M just before I went to South Africa for my sardine run David. You generously took the board out of your shop unit and gave it to me in exchange for my fried one; for that I am eternally grateful! How are you? evidently Scubacam is alive and well - good job!
