    i'm sorry if anyone has taken this personally it certainly wasn't aimed at anyone at all. I'm merely expressing an opinion. I guess what i'm trying to say is if there is a perceived threat then we have to trust our security forces to minimise that threat ie the laptops, if we have to give up a little bit of our time to be more secure then so be it.

    That might make them even more curious and they could still seize it at customs. :shocked025::(

    Just a reminder...

    Back up your data before leaving home!

    It's something all of us should be doing regularly, but probably aren't! Including me--and I'm pretty good about it. Just not quite as good as I should be! :lol:

    Surely they would return it? Unless of course, whatever you had on your machine led to your arrest. :eek:
