The Great Blizzard of Christmas 2010 has severely derailed my plans (love snow as I do). I was supposed to fly from Newark to Hong Kong on Dec. 26th at 3:30, arrive in HK at 8:30pm Dec 27th, then fly Air Asia Hong Kong-Bangkok on the morning of Dec. 28th with a connecting flight immediately following from Bangkok - Luang Prabang, Laos. Newark is supposed to get a foot plus of snow tomorrow. I am feeling a little screwed. Is anyone out there skilled at making the best of this kind of situation? I've never dealt with it before, and have spent the last eight hours trying to make something work. Details below. [more inside]

I am at JFK waiting to fly to Bermuda. Most likely, my flight is going to be cancelled due to weather in Bermuda. In the event my flight does get cancelled, what is the best thing to do regarding finding a room for the night that isn't going to be dodgy? I have had a look at rates in Manhattan and even something as simple as the Courtyard Marriott on 3rd is going for $450 a night. Should I stay near the airport? If so, where? Do I have any leverage on such short notice? Can I just call the hotel, and say 'Hey, I need a room, if its not you, its gonna be someone else. What's the best rate you can give me?' Help me find a decent place to stay and not pay an arm and a leg in NYC.

I'm taking the Greyhound to Buffalo Airport from Toronto on Saturday. I get in at around 10:30 AM. My plane doesn't leave until 6:00 PM.

Is there anything within easy public transportation of the Buffalo airport that I could spend the day checking out, or should I prepare lots of reading material?

At one airport, the scanner always beeps if I pass through without removing my shoes. The same scanner lets my colleague pass without removing shoes. At another airport, our roles are reversed. The colleague has to remove shoes because the scanner beeps, while I pass through without any problems. Both scanners (at different airports within Australia) are the gated type, not the enclosed-chamber sorts. What is going on?

A few days ago, I woke up to the sound of my MacBook fan on full and a totally unresponsive UI (as in I couldn't even turn up the brightness to see the screen, which I'd dimmed overnight). I rebooted, and everything was fine, except the Airport menu bar item said "No Airport card is installed". I've booted from the previous day's backup, I've run System Profiler from the OS X install DVD, and I even replaced the Airport card with a new one (bought from eBay, fitted according to the instructions on iFixIt). All report that I don't have an Airport card. What next? [more inside]
