One of the frustrations that I have with this computer is that when you do very slow assents and assents with stops - it keeps tacking time on to your no decompression limits instead of giving credit. It can make your assents take a very loooonnnggg time. Maybe that is why I have never had a problem diving with it before - I know that it does this and just live with it.
The issue that I found is that if you try and stay out of decompression - it perhaps accepts and encourages a faster than would be healthy assent. Had I done my deeper stops and slower assents as usual - I would have most likely done a lot of time with at least a 10 foot ceiling.
