Are you sure the computer is really doing much more
than just implementing the tables on a second by second
Keep in mind that most models have a flat profile
NDL significantly less than that of the NAUI table.
(46 vs 55 mins @ 60 comes to mind).
So a 3 tier multilevel table plan (MHK and the others
have memorized many common ones) could easily come up
with more bottom time, or the same bottom time, as your
more precise, but more conservative computer. Certainly
they would if you were diving wrecks.
