Well, I also get nervous when flying into the US. Three weeks ago, I flew Toronto to Vancouver to Portland to speak at OSCON 8. I went sans laptop, but had my presentation on two different CDs and on a USB thumb drive. I was asked what was on the CDs (which must have shown up on
the carry-on X-ray), but the drive went unnoticed.

Why would I take the whole laptop if I can carry a terabyte on a keyfob?
