TIP O' THE WEEK   
----------------  

Tips to make your computer a better travel companion
By James Wysong
From Tripso.com

1. Power up. If you think you'll be able to juice up between 
flights, think again. Outlets for passenger use are 
disappearing as fast as airport energy bills are rising, and 
when you do find an outlet, it usually has someone hooked up 
to it already. So bring an extra battery — it's worth the 
weight. 

2. Choose your seat wisely. On the airplane, get a seat by 
the window so you are not bothered by passengers with weak 
bladders. If possible, get a seat in an exit row, at the 
front of the economy section, or on the bulkhead aisle; 
these rows typically have more space — or have no seats in 
front of them — so you can extend your screen without inter-
ference.

3. Protect against snoopers. If you have WiFi access on your 
computer, secure it. When I turn on my computer in flight, I 
often find I can access most of the laptops on board. So, if 
you don't want me — or any other nosy person — looking into 
your files, learn how to secure your connection.

4. Cover your ears. If you (or your child) want to play a 
game or watch a movie, be considerate and wear earplugs. If 
someone in a neighboring row is not using earplugs, and the 
audio annoys you, call the flight attendant. Common courtesy 
will work its way out.

5. Close it up. When flight attendants pass with the drink 
cart, close your screen until they have served everyone in 
your row. Accidents and turbulence can cause spillage onto 
your keyboard, ruining your flight and possibly your PC.

6. Get your Net for free. Many airports offer free wireless 
Internet access these days, but not all of them. If you have 
WiFi capability on your laptop, go to freewifispot to find 
out where you can access the Internet for free. 

7. Extend it. Check with your airline to see if your flight 
has an in-seat power supply. If it does, then spend 10 or 12 
bucks on a universal flight adapter cable. Different computers 
have different power cords, so check the specifications care-
fully; some models come with different plugs so they can 
adapt to most any laptop — as well to cell phones, PDAs and 
DVD players. 

8. Eyes front! Why is it that when your computer is open, 
everyone feels it's OK to look at your business? I have to 
admit I am guilty of this impropriety myself from time to 
time. If you really must keep your work to yourself, invest 
in a privacy filter to keep prying eyes off. 3M and other 
manufacturers make several models.

9. Be considerate of others. Porn and flying don't mix. I 
had to stop four passengers last year from playing X-rated 
DVDs. Why anyone would want to be turned on during a flight 
is beyond me. Different strokes for different folks — just 
not on the airplane!

10. Back it up. Technically, you are not allowed to put your 
laptop in the seat pocket in front of you for takeoff or 
landing, but did you know it's OK to put it behind your back 
against the seat? This is actually a good idea: The computer 
poses no danger to anyone and there is no way you'll leave 
it behind accidentally.
