Well I'm a geotechnical engineer, so what's your excuse :p

I've been happy enough typing 'make' on the Linux command line to build
someone else's software for years, but other than messing with Excel macros
to make my work easier, I had no coding experience until I noticed the dive
plan table wasn't always output correctly, and I had a go at fixing it.
After quite a few attempts, and a lot of Robert's patience, my first
patches were merged.

Seriously, thank you for testing, suggesting improvements, and reassuring
me and Robert that we're not the only ones that use and value the planner.

be happy to implement it when I get a chance (and that's been far too
rarely lately) after 4.6 is out.
