Better yet (much better): upload all your bits to the cloud (strongly
encrypted if need be), and have almost none on the machine when you cross the
border - you can download it when you get to the other side. (And, if you're
paranoid, or have reason to be, don't forget to i) delete it before coming
back across, and ii) wipe your free space.)

Anything _on_ the machine they are entitled to look at - and if you have A
bunch of encrypted stuff, and won't give them the keys, it makes them i)
suspicious, and ii) pissed off at you for flouting their 'authority'.

'Sure, officer - look at anything you want, nothing's locked' - they'll soon
lose interest and wave you on their way, there's obviously nothing there to
