Hasn't yet, and I fly a whole lot more than I like. You may be asked to turn
it on, or to remove it from the bag so that they can wipe it with a cloth
and put it into a 'sniffer' to look for explosives.

Yep, you have to wait about ten minutes or so after take off before they

About 4 trips back, I recompiled my kernel on the flight home. The lady next
