	The numbers I got when I wrote my page are *way* different.
When I first finished the calculations, I thought I was way off, but
then I talked to my friend (who's in the Navy, on a submarine), and he
said that they *looked* about right.  They're probably off a bit because
I didn't take into account cooking fires and lanterns and so on.

	One of the things that I didn't mention on my page is CO
(Carbon Monoxide).  That's the stuff that kills on a submarine (or in any
closed environment).  The article said something like .5% is harmfull, (if
not fatal) and that the levels should be kept below that.  I'll try to
get the exact numbers tonight.

	I'm thinking of converting over to the shorter time, and making
air replenishing magic a bit more common.  This is actaually more effective
when GURPS rules are used (which I'm slowely converting too), because of
the way magic items work.

	Just adding my little bit... (:
