Ken, you obvisously know a lot more about diving than I do, but I'm wondering why you don't believe in, or at least don't seem to advocate the use of Nitrox. I know that your shop, and most others around here don't do Nitrox fills, or teach the use of Nitrox. Is that for economic reasons, or do you feel that Nitrox is too dangerous, or pehaps just beyond the abilities of most divers? Also, I'm wondering if you personally have had the training and if you ever use the Voodoo gas yourself? As I said before I'm taking a Nitrox class now, and the reasons for doing so seem to make perfect sense to me. Safer diving under conservative tables, or increased bottom times, etc. What is your take on this?
