What happened to the TSA Airport Wait Times?

[caption id="attachment_900" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="The Albuquerque Airport in Albuquerque, NM"][/caption] Houston, TX 20 Oct. 2009.  I am doing some research for my free "I will teach you to travel" mini-course (you can subscribe to the right) and when I checked the TSA's Web site about airport wait times, I got this message: "The Wait Time Calculator is currently under construct...

It's time to head back home from Las Vegas, NV (LAS)

Las Vegas, NV (LAS), 17 Oct. 2009.  I got checked in  and headed to the gate.  Security lines were almost non-existent so it was smooth sailing.  At the gate I got connected to the complimentary airport WiFi, thanks McCarran and caught with e-mail, etc.  Soon, I got a window seat and boarded.

I'm in Austin, TX for a few hours time to check out the state capital

Austin, TX 26 Sep. 2009.  The planned flying time was slated at 0:32, we made it in 0:30 landing at 9:59a and at the gate by 10:01a, a minute early.  I was so tired on the flight, I dozed off, woke up to get a bag of pretzels, but missed the drink service.  No worries as I'd had breakfast at the Presidents Club.  This Austin to Houston segment is so short anyways. I disembarked and located the Pr...
