I think that you are right here with the messy stuff. And yes, you are
right about listing all the divecomputers. I also have to add the
'choose model x if you have model y' parts too. The problem is only
that I don't have all the mentioned computers to test. We have been
working for a few days now on the manual, and coming friday I am going
to ask my diveclub members if they would like to lend me some of their
computers. This way, I can add also the 'connect your computer-type x'
in the manual.

Grin, you are  absolutely right :-) This part should be covered as
well :-) Working on that in the coming couple of days. Please keep in
mind that I do the writing in my  free time, next to my job...  Only
have 1 braincell and 2 hands... and those 3 are rather busy the last
couple of days... :-)
