Fascinating!  I had no idea the readers were that small now.  Seems like 
that would work for a very cursory search / detention.  Of course, if 
it's a force that has access to full-body x-ray, etc., maybe not so 
good.  That's why I was suggesting something to shred the actual data.  
Wish I knew more so I could make concrete suggestions.  I know there's a 
BASH prog called "shred" that will do some of what I have in mind, but I 
haven't had the chance or the spare box to experiment with it.  I also 
have no idea how to set it up through a GUI, so Grandma could use it...
