FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition and 2018 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

Very glad I don't have tickets to go to YVR for the medal games as I had originally planned.

Not complete shocker I guess as the analysts called out one of the weaker/est teams in the last while.
But still, disappointing.

I'm probably in the minority among my demographic (mid-30s) but I miss the days when I could just walk into a store and buy software and then take it home and load it on your computer.

I'm sure that's still possible, but not when you work for a global company with an IT department like the one I have.

3 weeks of escalation with Microsoft and I still don't have the software/key despite having received a hefty bill.

I feel your pain. We are on week four of trying to obtain a license from CISCO to enable our VPN. We are now doing it through our U.S. subsidiary. Believe it or not it is faster. They are only on week 2 and hope to have a key to us tomorrow. Canadian branch is still looking into it.

Wah! 😭😭😭

My perfect, tiny, nearly immaculate iPhone SE appears to have bit the dust.

I guess I'll spend Monday talking to the 'Geniuses' to see if it can be resurrected.

Damn I love small phones, which I guess makes me even more of a fossil...

Nope, didn't drop it. Was on a trip last week and it was working fine when I went to bed. In the morning it looked like this:




Display is funky and touch screen no longer works.
