Hey,

When i'm back in the UK i'll take a look around if you want... but i'm not much of a book person in general... only read 3 in the past year and they were all borrowed off a friend... for that matter I can't actually remember the last time I went in a bookshop!

But i'll give it a go ;)

I wonder what would happen to me....likely to be thrown in jail until I give them the encryption key...or fined? Yes. Or more likely refused entry to the US and put back on the next plane to Blighty. Minus the laptop of course... and if it can be held for an indeterminate amount of time they wouldn...

LMAO... classic... it does amaze me... the lengths people (and politicians for that matter) go to, to explain things: School for BS speak: Explain that what happened was actually what was meant to happen, but that it wasn't your fault that what was meant to happen was wrong!

Hang on... you think my missus actually cleans the house and does the washing voluntarily??? We used to compete on the Game Cube and the loser had to do a task like hoover the house or wash the clothes, do the ironing etc... I became good at the game of choice (Super Smash Brothers) quick!

I guess if I get bored in the hotel over the next month I can have a go on these... although I have been told if I sit in the hotel and don't explore my work mates will kill me!
