How much gear at home should you have for your jobsearch? What about air travel with two laptops?
It seems as though I wind up printing a lot more than I had expected.
Another thing that may be helpful is Mozilla’s recent offering of automatic encryption (https everywhere). Employers seem to like this for transmitting application documents, and Mozilla may be the easiest browser to use in jobsearch work.
I’m also told that people who travel for work often do carry two laptops on planes – one for work and one for personal. That always sounded like too much of a hassle, but “they” tell me that this is OK with the TSA. Any experience with this?
Here's another issue: Cable companies have been making home customers switch to wireless routers to hook up multiple PC's at home. But some workplace computers don't have wireless cards because of sercurity (wardriving) concerns.
