Smarter way to consolidate a big international Amazon shipment?

Smartest way to consolidate a large international order from Amazon.com? A big enough order to get free shipping within the US, and of mostly small and light items from multiple vendors, but international shipping will add several hundred to the cost. This is to Singapore, but the Singapore service (Vpost.com.sg) is frankly lousy, and I'd like an alternative.

I'm convinced the Viennese re-po men are coming to get me

So I think I'm getting ripped off. Or, at the very least, the victim of an international company's careless mistake. I purchased $192 worth of camera film (Polaroid) over a year ago in October 2009 from an Austrian photography company. Apparently, I was never charged for it and a representative claiming to be from the company emailed me last month (around mid Feb.) informing me of this open payment and that I need to pay this amount. I have no recollection of this order, seeing as I'm a fairly routine customer and this was placed over a year ago. I ignored the first email back in February and they've now sent me another email requesting the $192 payment or threatening to take this to a debt collection agency. I don't think I even have $192 to my name - what should I do??

Small differences in the U.S.A (international people)

What are some small differences you've noticed about the US? Examples: My Japanese friend says that in Japan, large buildings have multiple public entrance/exits. My Dutch friend says that in the Netherlands, women shower in the gym showers. Specifically, I'm interested in things that could imply some theory (elaborate or not) of US culture, of some region of the US.

The Joys of International Freelancing?

I am US citizen, and the sole proprietor of a business offering software development and consulting services -- in other words, I'm a freelancer. However, I'm a bit of a nomad at the moment, doing a lot of international travel for pleasure, and am gradually picking up clients from first-world nations (UK, Canada, NZ, Australia). I'm curious about the legality (at a broad level, you are not my lawyer) of me working on my freelance tasks as I move around on non-work visas, especially when I may find myself in a country where I currently have an active client.
