i founded this forum many years ago (like 14?) with some friends, because we all where p#ssed off about the working conditions in most dive centers. at one point i had to leave here for personal reasons, lot's of things happening afterwards over the years. i kinda forgot even what we created here at one point... LOL i just got here again, searching for sth completely different - being amazed the board is still here and i can even log in... i guess i will start to swing by again and towards the very beginning of the new year (when i will finally have way more time again) try to start and get things going again. i am not actively teaching for some years now, but every single time i go diving on my trips i get a first hand reminder that (unfortunately) rather little to nothing changed. so, there is still a need for a forum like this, unfortunately.
see you soon, when we restart things.
