I knew that was what you were trying to say, that you were trying to say "maximize your potential", but I read it as "maximize your body size."

All in good fun!

There is a book on mindfulness with that title. It was written by Jon Kabat-Zinn. It's a good read.

BTW, maybe a GPS device would be good for you to have. hehe

You have taken video of your progress My group of swimmers would also like to do this. What camera did you use? Could the Olympus Stylus 1030sw be used can any one answer this question?

My supposedly waterproof Olympus Stylus completely flooded the very first time I ever used it under water. It was replaced on warrantee and the replacement flooded irrepairably as well. I'd suggest something else, with one of those water-tight clear enclosures that they sell in scuba diving shops.

Oh my Kamisama! A case for my wife's little Canon SD1100 IS digital camera cost 60% more than the camera itself. That's full retail price though. http://estore.usa.canon.com/webapp/w...oductId=171768

Some people make their own water-proof cases. I was thinking about taking an inexpensive digital camera, many of which can record video, and experimenting with case design. It should be inexpensive to build the case and fun if you like projects like that.

I've seen diagrams and videos on the Web on how to make cases. Here's one that Google found in 0.24 seconds: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/648138...corder_mod_10/

But I just thought of an odd idea of my own just now. Only the front of the case needs to be clear and solid. Imagine the back of the case consisting of a rubber glove, allowing the camera to be handled directly. So, basically, the case would consist of a cylinder, a lense, and a glove. hehe

Wow, this is pretty good for basically being a Ziplock bag.

This is a little extreme, but it is like my glove idea: http://web.media.mit.edu/~tim/pix/waterproofcamera.html

This is cool: http://www.zoomers.net/snooper.htm

This is fantastic! I love the ziplog bag idea! The prices of commercial waterproof cases are way too high.

An easy improvement is using the window weathering plastic sheet Homedepot sells. I put some over my window, it's almost invisible.
