Zauruses Are Now Not Allowed In Airports...

This is unfair, I don't understand how a PDA on a plane could be dangerous

P.s.: no, that's not me in the photo, this is a random photo I found while browsing.

That image reminded me the first time I saw that sign. It was like 6 years ago, and I was at the London Stansted airport. I have arrived at the airport in the late evening, and I had to wait for the next flight which was departing the next morning. So I searched for a place with a free power socket to plug in my C1000; it wasn't an easy task since there were already other people, who like me had to spend the night at the airport, who had already taken some free sockets. I eventually found one near a kiosk, I unplugged an oven (which wasn't operating anyway, since the kiosk was closed during the night) and sat there, on the floor, making some music on my Z with Milkytracker for most part of the night, sitting under a No Sharps sign  Those were happy times...
