Loading screens on computers - go like lightning to 99 (or even 100%) in 15 seconds, then pause for 2 minutes.

I'm sure there's a technical reason for this, but's it's very annoying.  Why isn't the percentage indicative of the time left?

Danske Bank's new mobile banking app. Compared to their old mobile & tablet apps, it's nothing less than a major fail. 😔
Fighting against ignorance on the internet since 1999. It's just taking longer than I hoped.

Awful. Looks like they contracted some A-level student to design it. The old mobile app was much better.

Very naive of anyone to belive that the IRA broke into Castlereagh or indeed carried out the Northern Bank robbery.

What purpose did any of those things serve? It was synchronised and coordinated in order to create the conditions to eventually make the IRA go away. The murder of Robert McCartney at McGuinness' bar was an additional unplanned bonus for those wishing to end the existence of the IRA. If the IRA actually carry the raid and robbery out, it was carried out with the full knowledge of MI5 and the British Govt as part of the plan agreed between the Ra and themselves.

All you have to look at is the outcome of those 3 major events. IRA gone (Seadhna Walsh statement 2005). SF in government. Decommissioning taken care of.

Northern Bank notes defunct. Supposed info re agents of the state got from castlereagh never acted on or used. It was all part of the agreed deal between GA and the British Govt to end things for good.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing by the way but how they managed the information and how they changed the outlook of the Reublicanism was at best political genius and at worst machiavellian to the degree which opens up so many questions about how long things were maybe actually being coordinated and agreed upon by the leadership of the IRA and how many people died during this period.

Eventually it will all come out in the wash, it generally does.... who organised it or allowed it to happen is pointless, both sides of divided were, at the end, played a dirty tune and fell for it, either for self gain, pressure applied on them to avoid a jail term or if you are led to believe a change in political view points and a get out strategy, either way, there were some dirty deeds done..

Collusion? Brits colluding with UDA/UVF/UDR/IRA/SF was happening daily, it seems, the victims/survivors and the families of those, need real honest answers so they can put things to rest, and get on with building their lives again, if thats possible!

Agree with that. I was speaking in specifics I suppose but in general in the 90s and 00s, I believe firmly that there was a co-strategy between British Govt and the leadership of the IRA to bring about what we got in the late 00s and normalisation.

Nothing far-fetched about any of that. So many wheels-within-wheels machinations going on behind the scenes, it's hard to know what to believe.
