With the recent upsurge in bandwidth usage on YD (its HUGE), the gallery has been suspended (ie no new galleries will be hosted on YD), I have uploaded some piccies taken today onto my personal server. These were taken with Andy2tanx's new digital camera (and converted to mono by me for atmospheric effect). I reckon they are really good!

I can't see a quick way to tell, but have you got mod_gzip running?  If you haven't, may I reccomend it -- it can make a serious difference to bandwidth useage.  The piccies are quite cool by the way, B&W appears to be in fashion for wreck  photos

Not got mod_gzip installed - am looking into it now. Phil - I think the photos are great but Andy took them! The one with me looking like I am asleep was actually me repairing a fin strap that came undone mid dive!

Bloody ell that viz looks quite spiffy... who was the third diver?
<span =''>
We had Nigel Waller (our resident traffic policeman!) and Steve Summers. Both great lads and we had a couple of excellent dives (fin problems apart!). Viz was over 5 metres which wasn't bad - bloody cold after Gran Canaria last week - I swear my bollocks retreated so far inside my body cavity that I looked like a turkey!)

Does that explain why you've got 6 balls and Peter's only got 4. Great pics, there was a guy looking for pics he could 'borrow' on Handbag.net I pointed him to those as he wanted realistic UK pics. He's doing a web site, so I suggested he asked if he could 'buy' them.

Nice to meet some of the YD Hierarchy.

They might take me seriously now that they`ve seen me in my drysuit.

Tried my new three fingered mitts, very good, hands still effin cold but bearable.

Great pics, would be interested to know what camera and cost.
