>>>>>[ Let me say here that any technomancer that carries his cybernetic
interface device around in an obvious manner is BEGGING for complications with
local authorities. Some MegaCorporate security forces react only slightly less
favorably to firearms than to 'decks'. In England, for example, all cyberdecks
must be registered with the Lord Protector's office; it is certainly not the
place to be jauntily swinging your equipment around.
Carry it inside something--a briefcase, purse, whatever--and this shall
accomplish two tasks: 1) It shall prevent or delay any undue attention.
(Always something desireable in this line of work) 2) Any such carrying-case
can be augmented with Kevlar and other armor types to supplement the protection
to one's cyberdeck. ]<<<<<
