Yet another thing to worry about with laptops

Apparently more people are being accosted and having their laptops and other mobile devices searched and even taken away from them putting everything on the system at risk. Something drive encryption isn't going to fix! OK, maybe if you have everything stored on an encrypted file/partition.

As inconvenient as it is, I'm starting to like the idea of having a clean laptop and only accessing files remotely. I'm just not sure that's practical unless the laptop is really locked down to keep users from saving anything locally.

Ah, the joys of our electronic society...
