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.

Also the Linux kernel is being embedded in win10 as of wsl2. Something like that... OS is just a tool.

Edit: I could learn how to reply properly too... Ugh... Mind is elsewhere

This whole TB half+ regular season home games at The Big O idea is lame. Just IMHO.

They hope to get two cities to each build a new stadium for only half a team. Not bloomin' likely.

Yes, but isn't some MLB in Montreal better than no MLB in Montreal?

That depends whose money is used to build a stadium and bring the team I guess.

Will miss the GOAT, but it was expected. Too bad he isn't going back to the Western Conference (yet, at least) where it all started for him.

I'm in PVG so missed the draft and just catching up now. MTL fans must be giddy with their pick.

Jays tried for a late come back against the Evil Empire last night. Shame that the pitchers dug them such a deep hole.

At least the bats are improving. Just need to get some pitching and some defense and this will be a good team.

Sanchez is horrible lately and time for a reset for him either in the minors or with another team. Jays starters haven't been good all year but dreadful lately.
