[Debconf-discuss] Tipps for traveling through USA with a braille display?
This might sound strange at first sight, but I am actually concerned
about me traveling through the USA on my way to Managua carrying a
braille display. When I flew to Bordeaux two years ago I was trapped at
security in Lyon for approx. half an hour because the personell
there believed I was carrying explosive material. This led to them
actually fetching a special security guy who ended up fetching a dog to
assert that my "strangely looking device" was not a bomb.
If french people are already making such a fuzz I am really concerned
about the USA.
My braille display is quite expensive, so giving it up on some boarder is
actually definitely not an option.
Since I have never passed through USA (on purpose) in the past, I am
quite concerned. Does anyone have experience with US airports and
"strange looking devices". Is there perhaps some way I can ensure that
I don't loose my €6.600,- device on my way to Managua due to silly
