Sorry for some absence. Was on a business trip (managed a few dives on
I suggest that we focus in getting the Poseidon data logging working
accurately and reliably. Once the Poseidon stuff is in an acceptable
state, we use this as a platform to widen the range of CCR equipment
that can be logged. We need to see that the underlying data structures
for the Poseidon is rockstable, that the import reads a whole diversity
of Poseidon dives and that the visual presentation is efficient and
accurate. Currently there is no explicit provision for bailout diving,
only uncomplicated CCR. I think it should not be complex to implement
because the underlying data structures are already in place. That is the
obvious next step in finalising the Poseidon code. But, for me, the
first step is to see that the existing code works well, before any
expansion. The Qt side is obviously becoming important now but I do not
know whether Tomaz haz any spare time at the moment.
Does this make sense at all?
I will really try to get more persons diving with Poseidon to do some
testing. I should be able to get at least one CCR instructor that uses
The way that I feel, the APD Inspiration is the next one to tackle
because in some ways it would probably only use a subset of the Poseidon
features (although there are complexities generated by the fact that it
uses two computers), and Shearwater is obviously also often used, but I
am hesitant to touch that before the Poseidon import works well.
