I'm moving house next weekend and new place does not have WiFi. It's a six month lease and I'll probably be moving out of the country after that. I use a lot of internet (streaming music, downloading podcasts, films, sending large files, using cloud services, etc.) and so I need something unlimited or pretty near it. Everything I'm seeing online so far is either too much £ for too little internet (£20 for 2GB per month, seriously??) or too much commitment (12-18 month contracts for phone, broadband and TV). I only need internet. What are my options, if any? Thanks!

Does a service exist that will allow me to purchase things overseas that aren't available in the US and have them shipped to the US? Some kind of forwarding service? [more inside]

I'm looking to buy a sub-£500 laptop in the UK online. I've checked out Amazon
. Dixons seems to have a good range of solid models & features vs. price point. Although, I can't get any manufacturer's guarantee (a.k.a. warranty) information from them.
Can anyone recommend any other reputable vendors?

How can I buy a pair of shoes only sold in the UK?
There is a pair of Clarks that I want but the model is only available in the UK. The website will only ship with in the UK and the US retail stores can't order them. I have an email into Clarks UK and I'm awaiting an answer.
I don't know anyone in the UK so I cant ask them to buy them and ship them.
Is there a way I can buy them and get them to New Jersey? Some sort of shipping relay?

Where shall I go to for buying reasonably-priced (i.e. under £100, if not lower) leather messenger bag (yes, all right, a manbag) in the UK? Anything web-based, or located in Oxford or London would be great. I don't really know where to begin looking. These guys
(found via Google ads) seemed OK, but I could be wrong.

I'm looking for a PHP based shopping cart system that is easy to install, easy to explain to the person adding items to the backend and works with UK-based CC handlers. Any recommendations?

There are some UK sites I'd like to purchase from but they don't ship here to the States. Anyone know of a workaround that doesn't involve personally knowing someone over there? Something like shopthestates.com
, but for UK shopping...

I'm currently looking at notebooks in the UK for the simple things in life - word processing, playing championship manager etc. Maybe the occasional DVD or C&C: Red Alert. Looking around, there seem to be a number of IBM ThinkPad T22's around at around £400 (PIII 900 Mhz, 256Mb, 20gb hd, 14.1 TFT) - does anyone know of any other good deals in the £400-£600 bracket?
