Was scrolling through vHansard, and came across this! Looks like we missed the memo? Ah well, looks like a pretty cool format for temporary notices, so maybe next time.
(p.s. this is not a criticism!!..... i just wanted to write something in the house of commons font)

Hello all ! Not wishing to open a can of worms here, but hoping for a bit of clarification regarding the booking of Manchester tower. Now there is obviously two towers "EGCC_N_TWR" and "EGCC_S_TWR" and it's always been a gentlemen's agreement so to speak from North Tower whether they wan't South tower open or not, so it's not really booked. Now I accidentally booked on the CTS "EGCC_TWR" which it let me do, and then another controller booked "EGCC_N_TWR" which it also let them do which overlapped the bookings then. So looking for clarification really on what you should be booking Manchester Tower under. However if there is no official rule my proposal would be:
If someone books "EGCC_TWR" they are band boxing both towers, but if someone wishes to open EGCC_S_TWR they still ask EGCC_N_TWR if that's okay.
If someone books "EGCC_N_TWR" then another controller can book "EGCC_S_TWR" and the controllers do duals for the time that South Tower is logged on with their bookings.
I look forward to any responses and hopefully we can get some clarification on this for the future !

It seems the smartCARS is windows only (an .exe file) which alienates mac users.
Is it possible to supply all the necessary server details so if for example I were to use Xplane and a Mac (yes, I know!, a double whammy!!) I could use the existing XACARS application and enjoy the new (is it new?) training excercises? 🙂
Thanks in advance,
