Leaving on a jet plane...

But I do know when I'll be back again. At Heathrow Terminal 3 waiting for my gate to be called. Place seems like less of a nightmarish cattle pen than usual. Still pretty grim though.

Strange thing - after all these years, the sight of armed British policemen (with MP-5 SMGs no less) still throws me a bit even though I don't bat an eyelid at similar sights in Malaysia or even armed Singaporean troops at Changi.

Couple of amusing things

Julian IMed me to ask if I wasn't supposed to be on a flight somewhere. I replied that I was but hadn't he heard of laptops, Bluetooth and GPRS? His replied he was lost for words. Something of a first for him ;-)

Second thing is it seems the departure/arrival screens run on Windows 95. How do I know this? Because I saw a screen crash and reboot!

Well, I found them amusing anyway.
