    In this years package, we once again received a duty-free coupon.

    This years certificate doesn't have our name on it like last years did.
    So, I'm thinking we can probably gift our certs to somebody else? Is this right?

    Coupon says... $10 off your next onboard duty-free purchase of $75 or more. PLUS you can get an additional 250 Aeroplan miles.

    I never use these things.
    If you are somebody who does buy duty free onboard and would like another coupon, let me know.

    We have two such coupons too and we never buy duty free onboard either. So ours are available for the taking too.

    How about we establish a top-secret drop location in the YYZ MLL where we can share duty-free coupons? [​IMG]

    I had an interesting conversation with the SD on one of my flights the other day. It started when I asked him about the cable locks that they put on some of the carts. He said it was to ensure that there was no theft of the duty free items. The most interesting comment was that this theft was brought up in corporate meetings/memos and the amount of theft from duty free alone was over a million dollars per year. When you do the math, it's not a whole lot on a per flight basis...but holy jeebus.....

    WOW! That is something I had never thought of people doing. Stealing from the duty free in the planes. :rolleyes:

    The link appears to be functional once again. This is the link from the promo page to go shop: http://www.acdutyfree.com/EN/index.aspx

    Wow. As a software developer I felt for the bashing that the different AC/AE IT groups were taking on this and the TOBB. This image sets a new low. Rule #1 of website security is that you don't publicly expose error details in an error web page. Line 22 tells me how to start working on an overflow error that could breach their site. That kind of info should never end up in the user's hands.

    As a .NET developer, I can tell you that lines 23-25 explain a lot about why websites are slow. If this is how AC/AE sites are built, all I can do is shake my head and cringe every time I try to load them up.

    My industry....the least professional profession currently around. I suppose the bright side is that there's lots of money to be made fixing others fawk-ups (which is what my schtick is).

    Right you are. Trying to fix things is what I do as well, though on the product development side, not internal IT systems. And there is indeed no shortage of things to fix.

    But even so, one would hope that an exception handler would not be that advanced a concept ... :(

    Oh, you'd be surprised when you start talking to supposed "senior developers". My favourite IT saying of all time is that "there are a lot of junior developers with 15 years of experience."
