    Default TSA is trying to destroy all air travel.....

    Just got this from our HR chick. Working for an international company we have folks flying all over the place, so we get lots of airline "security" updates....

    New International Security Measures

    Check In Early For Travel From Canada To The U.S.
    All passengers should plan to arrive at the airport at least three (3) hours in advance of their flight departure to allow extra time for check-in and the boarding process. As always, be sure to check your flight status information before you head to the airport.

    Carry-On Baggage Policy To The U.S.
    From Canada To The U.S.

    U.S. bound passengers are permitted zero carry-on bags effective immediately and lasting for several days. Items that are excluded from this restriction include:

    small purses (not exceeding 12 x 10 x 5.5 in. or 30 x 25 x 14 cm)
    cameras
    coats
    items for care of infants
    laptop computers
    crutches
    canes
    walkers
    medications and medical devices
    musical instruments
    For details, visit Canadian Air Transportation Security Authority* Web site.
    From Belgium to the U.S.
    Effective December 30, 2009, through January 8, 2010, customers will be limited to one carry-on bag. Medical assistance devices will be allowed in addition to the single carry-on item.

    I've got to work on setting up a good video conferencing system. I'm afraid I'm going to end up twisting off some TSA agent's head because they are trying to follow their dumb ass rules.....

    With these new useless (stupid) rules, I'm debating whether to attend cansecwest or not. Not sure if I want to go through the hassle. Hopefully the stupidity will calm down before then.

    Regards,

    I keep telling you guys, horse and buggy is the best way to travel.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I first started reading that list as "restricted items include", and I get down to "items for care of infants". I thought... "yea, that wouldn't surprise me."

    No wonder you didn't come to DefCon! Freaking horse probably took a month to get to Vegas!

    I got as far as the Mississippi and couldn't cross, there's no covered bridge over it.

    Never played it. When it was popular I was too busy playing all the Zorks and Planetfall.
