Anyone know if TSA agents would require you to remove a laptop from a hard shell case
during the x-ray screening process? Or are they just concerned about clutter in bags obscuring their view?
I have the Incase linked above and do not want to have to try and go through the pain of removing the thing in line... or at all for that matter :)

Is there a way to cross-reference the unique identifier of an unpublished case available on one electronic database to which you are subscribed (Westlaw, LEXIS, etc.) with its unique cite on one of the other electronic databases to which you are unsubscribed? [more inside]

I need a display case for my models. They range in size from four inches to a foot across. I am sick of cleaning dust and small particles off them from the exposed brick wall they're by.
Ideally the case can be bought online and would arrive disassembled so shipping wouldn't be exorbitant. Overall dimensions should be 2'x1'x1' and maybe have a shelf at half-height. I need it to fit on a recessed shelf in the wall.
And of course, pricing should be as cheap as possible. I couldn't find anything like that online.
Mefites, amaze me! ;)

Back before the internet, how long would it take for legal decisions to be published, and how quickly would a lawyer be able to find out about new decisions? I'm hoping for the recollections of some of you older lawyers, but primarily I would love to find a printed resource for this type of information.
I've been looking and looking and can't seem to find the info anywhere. I am looking at the late 80s-early 90s.
I've looked for law review articles, caselaw, and general internet info on this subject and can't find anything. If a lawyer relied on a case in 1989, how long after a case reversing it was decided would it be published?

I really want a case for my DS Lite that can hold a few games and
doesn't suck in some silly way. It doesn't need to hold the power adapter, as my main concern is portability. Being able to play the DS while inside the case is also not something I'm interested in at all. It doesn't even have to be a "real" case built for the DS—it could just be something that works well for the job.
Do any MeFites have a case for your DS Lite that you're particularly fond of? [more inside]

The great musical-instrument-on-plane paradox. How do you prepare (what case[s] do you buy and what strategies do you develop) when you need to travel on many different kinds/scales of airlines, with a delicate wooden instrument that MAY or MAY NOT be allowed as carry-on baggage (depending on circumstance, how full the plane is, and how much or little the inspectors care that it looks large, solid and "middle eastern")?

I just received (and installed) the Adobe Creative Suite of software. All of the discs came in a thick DVD-like pack, with the 5 discs held in sort-of staggered holders. Can you tell me where I might find packaging like this? I have a five disc Ween Bootleg (Rotten Cheese) that I would like to do all proper-like...

I want to find out how to get a durable glossy lacquered(?) wood finish for pseudo wooden instrument cases. I know almost nothing about varnish/lacquer. My last attempt resulted in this
, which is definitely the right look for the finish, but the problem is that it's far more prone to damage than it should be, such that I now feel I should try to keep the surface covered and protected, which makes me reluctant to actually ever take it out of the closet or use it. [more inside]
