with an attitude like that, you'll be on the list of people who they won't sell toHaving watched the arguments rage back and forth with very little constructive being done by your organisation I can confirm that when and if I buy a rebreather, it won't be one of yours.
Hate to tell you, but unless you want a thrown together O2 unit with various flaws obvious to even a drunk layperson, you couldn't buy one if you wanted. Well, you could pay for one, but until you receive it I'd suggest you haven't really bought anything...Having watched the arguments rage back and forth with very little constructive being done by your organisation I can confirm that when and if I buy a rebreather, it won't be one of yours.
Shocked at you, so cynical!!!Hmmm, I wonder if OSEL will just suddenly go bankrupt, and sell those assets (bought with various government grants IIRC) at a knockdown price to a sister company?
I think you're right. As I've said before, Alex has overreached himself, but his arrogance doesn't allow him to back down and he has to keep plugging on where others would have long given up.Yup,
My money is with Digg's, at first it smelt like a standard long con, then the photo's of the 20 odd scrubber can's turned up and lo they started shipping them but no where near what they were meant to be out of the box aka 100% working 0% compromise safety kit. To me that looked like a fire-sale from a failed product not the dawning of a new age.
The question was then and still is now, will there be technology in this decade that allows them to finish the iCCR as my guess is that until they can either move the sampling to the mouth or miniaturise the pitot technology used in anaesthesia they are pushing the proverbial up a hill trying to sort a chain of problems that all come from that one simple fact that is the simplest place to measure arterial CO2 which is what you need to make a bail out call is the arteries, anything further upstream has these compound problems in them.
PS. Don't go there on trying to sample bloods, it's not even worth thinking about..

My understanding is this isn't all that uncommon in small companies trading in volatile sectors - makes the risks slightly more tolerable. Could be wrong mind you...there is an existing "insidious" (I do like that word ) relationship between DL and OS, with the trading company basically owning nothing
