comment Best way to bring Desktop CPU from to India?
Before wrapping it into a sponge or styrofoam pad, I would put it inside a small electrostatic wrapping to avoid humidity and electric charges generated especially by styrofoam.

comment Best way to bring Desktop CPU from to India?
@Sid: Do you really mean CPU, or computer case? CPU is usually as small as a biscuit. Computer case is usually the size of a briefcase. We can't answer the question if you don't clarify which one you mean. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_case

comment Visa-friendly country for an international conference?
Just my imagination, but I was thiking that an average African citizen might have more trouble getting a visa for a "rich" country like Singapore, than for a "poorer" country like the Philippines. I guess I am mistaken?

I don't know the details but I am sure she has been to this embassy at least a few times already.

I am not familiar with this IATA tool, but maybe it concentrates on airports and does not list all ways to get on-arrival visa?

comment What clothes should I bring on a backpacking trip
Great advice. Note: Nobody needs a "giant" towel. I have a 20cm*20cm one, and it is sufficient, just twist it when it is full of water. With this size, attach it to the top of your backpack and it will get completely dry very quickly.

I have been working in Reykjavik during summer and winter, and loved the city during both seasons. But based on your criteria, summer wins.

comment Is Norway significantly more expensive than other European destinations?
Just nitpicking regarding your two first paragraphs: No, whether Norway is more expensive than other European countries does NOT depend on the asker's country or exchange rate. Great info otherwise :-)

comment Bringing a camping knife to Japan
How big is your knife? Off-topic: When I came to Japan, I brought a large heavy frying pan in my cabin baggage, it did not seem to bother the officials from Paris and Moscow!

Great list, for many countries! Just one thing: make sure your current phone is not SIM-locked.
