comment Update Facebook and/or Twitter via SMS while travelling
I will be travelling around Southeastern Europe. I will be camping or staying in hostels, I do not think free or non-free wifi will be that available, so I don't want to rely on it. I shall only be travelling around several countries for 3 weeks, so don't want to buy a local SIM card, esp. if I'll only be in a country for a few days. Ergo, I require some number that works with roaming.

comment Where to find free printable road maps/atlases online?
@Flimzy yes nearly all map data (excl. USA mostly) is copyrighted, but some, like OSM, is released in an open source/creative commons like licence making it "free as in beer"

comment What's the highest price a country charges citizens of another country for tourist visa?
Oh yes I suppose. But "health insurance" is not required to enter the USA, only a "nice to have".

comment How best to prevent data loss while travelling?
Agreed 100%. It is not feisable to rely on local internet cafés or wifi. People seem to be hung up on "Will there be a FTP Client?" when the real problem is that the whole town is on dialup. Uploading is not possible.

comment Where can I buy a “roaming” or “international” SIM card — one with attached phone numbers in multiple countries?
Sounds like something of limited benefit. Having roaming and/or 2 different sim cards would solve just about all your travel needs?

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Yes all "cider" in the UK & Ireland is as alcoholic as beer. I always thought it strange to see Ned Flanders enthusiastically talking about cider on the Simpsons.

Correct. Offensive slang, like "faggot".
