comment Carrying confidential corporate data into US on laptop/Drive/device - how to prevent data theft?
Most cloud services are actually quite safe. But of course you can encrypt what you upload, hide it with steganography, lock it up in a private corporate cloud behind VPNs with dongles, whatever. The point is that if it's not with you, it can't be looked at while crossing the border.

comment How do I get a self-addressed envelope from Canada to USA?
this is a good debunking of the reply coupon, but really glosses over the part where you buy US stamps while you're in Canada. How would someone do that?

comment Connection from Gatwick airport to Paddington station
Do you think there's a transporter or teleporter or something? What makes you believe that anything would be faster than a cab? Why is taking a cab the last thing you'd do? Are you concerned it would get stuck in traffic, or is it about the cost?

comment Do I need to apply for a visa to enter to South Korea if I already got Aus visa?
Does that just mean you don't need a visa if you're in transit, or you don't need one to visit? I read it as the former, and the question isn't clear on whether a transit or a visit is planned.

comment US trip planning suggestion
You can best plan your trip by learning about things you can reach from Chicago and then deciding whether to go to them or not. The learning part can be done on this site in the form of small, crisp, focused questions, like how long it takes to get from A to B or whether C can be properly visited in an afternoon. This question is far too broad and open ended to be answerable.

comment Can I bring a skillet with me as a carry-on item?
you can't check the suitcase or you don't have to? I've seen some bags on the luggage belt that could have been carryon, but were checked. In fact, I've done it myself on more than one occasion.

comment Is it safe to visit Nepal now since the trip is non refundable?
Today, yes. But in a month, perhaps not. I'm seeing this with Vanuatu. People are cleaning up or loading and unloading supplies, counting people that sort of thing. Not in the first days and weeks I agree, but perhaps in a month.
