FLYING??   

In these days of heightened security when flying, I suggest you CLICK HERE to go to the Transportation Security Administration to see what items are prohibited.

And if you are carrying a laptop computer CHECK HERE for electrical plugs, adaptors, etc.

While passing through airport security checkpoints, keep your eyes on your equipment as much as possible. Stolen notebooks are another side effect of the post-9/11 airport security checks. A typical ploy is for one thief to jump ahead of you as you're about to pass through the metal detector and intentionally set off the alarm. In the confusion, an accomplice nabs your notebook.

Put colored paper, duct tape, or a sticker on your notebook. These days, travelers must remove notebooks from their bags and feed them into the X-ray machines at airport security checks. There have been reports around the country that this has caused some travelers to pick up the wrong notebook--which is why tagging your computer for easy identification makes sense.

To some interesting travel pages.
