On board, kit stowed FSL

P.S. if one is permitted a p.s. - why the abbreviated thread title? are "totally pointless snippets of information" no longer to be aired??

TRAB threads are traditionally locked at 10,000 replies exactly, Mr Keef.

This is because TRAB was the first thread to get near such a number, and no one knew what the forum would do - so the original thread was closed to preserve it. Other threads have since exceed that number - but as this is TRAB XVI you can see that we are now a 150,000 pointless snippets of information and still running ...

Glad we're rid of the old thread. Weird things were happening. I p**ted a quote about a "senior" Cabin Attendant ... and her picture appeared with an additional quote without any action from me. It's scary.

I can go with tradition (I'm into that in a big way) but the post count on Fred XV has been wibbling up and down like my granddaughter's eyelashes. Last seen at 10001 but before that was 9999, and before that 10002 or 10003.

Burranyway ... would've been poetic to have the change at 101010000000

Some you win
