    I've considered that, too! Not yet, though. The new camera is still too. . . new. When digital gets just a bit better, it's something I'd seriously consider.

    When digital gets just a bit better?

    Now that's a contentious remark to make in these forums /img/wwwthreads/wink.gif.

    It's amazing what one can do when one doesn't know what one is doing!/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Anything can stand improvement! (Including, perhaps, my sense of discretion!) :)

    Don't you let that big bully Stoatey intimidate you Noreen, you just say what you want (he's all mouth and trousers you know!/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif). Everyone knows digital is a pile of pooh anyway! /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    BigWill is an agent provocateur!

    PS While checking the correct meaning of 'agent provocateur' in Google, I came across another 'AP' web site at http://www.agentprovocateur.com. It's not that I am into perusing lingerie web sites but it's one of the most creative web sites I've seen in a long time.

    It took you long enough to respond to my post BigWill. You weren't 'perusing' the HTML code too by any chance... /img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Well I was about to eat my words with salt and vinegar - I found an airport that looks after human beings as well as the flying machines - Schipol - efficient bus shuttle - reclining seats in the terminal - decent fresh food - polite staff - clear announcements - I was so shocked I forgot to ask for the hand inspection so my fingers are crossed for the Delta 3200 in the hand bag. Short delay in take off but mostly made up in the air and all was well and rosy with the world - but then there's Belfast and some inadequate loony has phoned in another bomb warning and hundreds of us have to sit tight and wait (for hours) while controlled explosions are carried out - it probably didn't make the news further afield it's such a commonplace and the airline industry is hardly to blame but it's not much to do with me and my wee bags of film either. To their credit Belfast airport staff carried on as best they could with resilience and good humour - the shops did quite well with their ludicrously inflated prices for gooey refreshments - and I'm left with mixed feelings about the best and worst in humanity and how sad it is that it seems to take the worst to bring out the best.

    ...look to your fellow tourists...."..too true, Chips...and that goes for most muslim Arab countries....anyone that's spent time in Saudi Arabia and seen the gory happenings in Riyad's 'chop-chop' square noontime Fridays will know why....
