"A Quick Look Ahead" - Mayflies USA, 1999

I'm back from Singapore...only slightly worse for the wear. We were late getting back to Heathrow on Friday, for a combination of reasons too dull to write about. But something that happened in Terminal 3 at Heathrow Friday morning, when I returned to UK, is worth writing about.

I used the UK's new "IRIS" system for the first time. "IRIS" stands for Iris Recognition Immigration System, and you can read all about it from this link.

It took only about 10 seconds from the time I walked into the "booth" until the doors opened, letting me into the UK officially. I didn't even show anybody a passport!

I love technology!
