comment Are anti-influenza drugs containing pseudoephedrine legal in Georgia?
My preferred decongestants containe pseudoephedrine so when I caught a cold in Georgia and still needed to function, I tried to buy some. The pharmacist looked a bit shocked and said "but that's a narcotic". So you definitely can't buy it there - whether you can take your own with you I would say officially probably not but Georgian customs is a breeze for tourists.

comment How long am I supposed to stay out of Israel after 3 months tourist visa has expired
Some countries just don't really make known the rule about how long you need to stay out. I came up against this in Mexico once years ago.

comment Is there a “best” wireless broadband provider or package for Australia?
I'm now looking into unlocking either my Huawei Kd771 or ZTE MF190 USB modems if possible to use with Amaysim pay-as-you-go. Or I might buy a Vodaphone SIM for the Huawei and see if the limits are too restrictive for me...

comment Is there a “best” wireless broadband provider or package for Australia?
Thanks Michael. Another thing, since they just take SIM cards and I want to use it just for data, putting any SIM card from a non-smart phone won't work will it. I don't know how phone and data stuff is differenatiated by the device or the SIM card \-:

comment Is there a “best” wireless broadband provider or package for Australia?
@MichaelBorgwardt: Unfortunately, the masses keep changing our technical terms once they get hold of them. "Download" acquired many ambiguously overlapping and opposing senses. Dongle so far has only picked up this one new sense. I don't have enough rage left over from "download" to fight for "dongle" d-;

comment Is there a “best” wireless broadband provider or package for Australia?
@Jonik: A few years I had a wireless dongle which actually was an external USB Wi-Fi card for computers that didn't come with Wi-Fi. But these days I guess everything comes with Wi-Fi so that term isn't used anymore. The two dongles I have are labelled "HSUPA USB Stick" and "HSPA USB Stick". One also says "Mobile Broadband".

I have one I was given in Romania for free by a friend who worked for a telecom there, and a Vodafone one a friend here gave me with no credit on it which might even need a new SIM I suppose. I'll add photos when I can.
