More evidence that – in spite of all the bleating about a post-Brexit “hard border” – the Irish Government does not even uphold the Common Travel Area arrangements at the present time!
Arrival into LHR: Flight treated as domestic, straight out into UK unhindered.
Arrival into DUB: No differentiation between UK and non-UK flights, thus need to show passport.in reply to: Aer Lingus Dublin-LHR T227 Aug 2018
I hate to be a topper, but for my final year undergraduate project in the mid 70s I designed and built a very minimal Z80 single-board computer which had 1KB ROM and a mere 256B RAM.
It required massive skill and discipline to optimise the code to maximise the use of every one of those precious bytes!

Not sure about others here, but since the Brexit vote ( is there a correlation) I’ve found the once relaxed friendly “manyana” approach from Spanish officials to have changed to become more officious, more obstinate and at times deliberately awkward?
Or am I just being paranoid ?
My diagnosis would suggest that, rather than being paranoid, you are suffering from a chronic case of Confirmation Bias 🙂in reply to: I went through Madrid airport yesterday….4 Jul 2018
I received payment of my Ryanair EU261 claim exactly one week after I made my application online.
The quickest was Norwegian, who turned it around within 2 days!
The absolute worst was British Airways, who dithered and denied for months. In the end I made a claim through one of the legal companies, and got paid within weeks – albeit reduced by their processing fee. But immediately after that, BA had the unbelievable gall to say that they had reviewed my case, and would now be in a position to make the pay out! Too late, guys; goodwill already gone.in reply to: Has anyone made an EU261 claim with Ryanair?27 Jun 2018

MartynSinclair, there is a huge difference between “having a difference of opinion” and bullying.
You are a very long-standing contributor to BT, so I know you know what that difference look like; VintageKrug anyone?
Positive contributions notwithstanding, it is utterly unacceptable for certain participants to feel they can browbeat others with impunity.
Time for BT to accept responsibility for contributors who thrive on malign behaviour.13 Jun 2018
FDOS_UK, the topic was “First World Problems”, of which this was a particular instance.
It was not specifically about Wifi, but rather an invitation to rferguson/handbag to regale us with similar tales from their own experiences – which they have very kindly done.12 Jun 2018
