Here's a rough cut of the first tape. Haven't had time to go through the other 2 tapes yet. Editing is a little rough and the music is just sometime I'd been working on for something else. Enjoy

It's 15mb.... I remember the internet speeds from Yap.... not worth the d/l. I am trying to compress the file to about 5mb.

You can.... Eric is going with a group next year. I'm even bringing my thai masseuse (if I can swing taking her away from the spa in June) but I'll be far away from the Wetpixel bunch.

Yes, I saw the announcement however, my bank account forecast pretty much show that I am going to be broke next year with all the divetrips that I already planned ;)
My boss also kept mentioning that some of the time off that I am asking for, should also be for all those conferences that I should go to, instead of diving!

Forgot to mention, the music gave me a flashback to college day when a friend of mine used to torture me with Philip Glass on a regular basis. Worked very well for the video though.

Hey I can't help it if Eric and bunch will be across the river in the cold while I'm enjoying my massage. But I do know they have a pool... which is going to be 17°C at least. LOL

17C? hmmm, are there any sardine run somewhere a bit warmer?
20-22C is the absolute low I might consider diving and preferably above 25C.
After years of Chicago winter, I am now allergic to cold liquid that is not in a glass, can or bottle!

Hehehe then you don't want to know that the temperature variance goes from 15-24°C. I actually had to leave a baitball once because I began shivering. I guess adrenaline can only do so much. My best baitball ever was 21°C. Of course these measurements are all Suunto ° so a +/- 1°C variance should be noted.
My first run I had 5mm wetsuit and a 3mm + 2.5 hooded vest. Now I've progressed to 7mm semi-dry.

Hmmm, I dove South Rinca where the temp was about 21C once with 3/2mm wetsuit/hood and it was tolerable for about 1/2 hour. I suppose 7mm semi-dry might be ok. I guess there is still hope :D

How long was the ride out on the dinghy? The sea did not look very calm! My main bane of scuba diving, motion sickness! ;) I once threw up on a 2 minute boat ride from the beach in front of the hotel to the divesite in Dumaguette, the Philippines ;)
