Even though the dive computer may tell you everything is great, you just cannot trust dive computers.
The best things is to adhere to a best mix, and therefore dive air no deeper than 65 ft, and EAN35 (or 36 if you prefer) from 70 to 100, and TMX 20/40 from 100 to 200 ft (TMX 25/40 if you prefer to 150).
Your NDL on TMX 20/40 to 175 ft is going to be only about 5 mins at most, if that, and it will require a safety stop. Therefore diving to this depth works a lot better with deco time or deco bottles. That is roughly the same as diving with air, but your head is a lot clearer on trimix.
1 hour minimum surface intervals are best between NDL dives, and 3 hour intervals between deco dives.
I have gone places you have never gone Chuck.
And you still sound like a little kid screaming insults at others on the playground Chuck. Rather inconsistent with your stanford credentials.
