Good Idea with the UPS. Plus it would make the box more stable (they would make good ballast).

Laptop hdd's might be built to take x-rays more than 3.5' ones are. OTOH why not build that into them anyway? Good point on the TSA's freak-out criteria.

All you proof shows is that it's easy to show that it can't be proven that the x-rays caused damage. (that in it's self is a strong argument and your anecdote supports it (+1) but no more) There is motivation to warn people if there is a risk but also a motivation to get people to hurry up and run there stuff through the machine as well.

Ditto on the "We X-ray everything" bit. Last time I flew, They were explicitly requiring that laptops go through on there own, not even in there bag. (This seems like an ideal way to make them as stealable as possible :b ) I swear, if they were allowed to, the TSA would run the people thought the x-ray machine as well.
