I must pack up my daughter's Vancouver BC west end studio apartment and store her stuff for around 3 months. Need recommendations - pods or self storage units? Companies to use, conpanies to avoid.

I have a relative who will be in Orlando from december 8 to 18. I'd like to order some (photo) products online and have them sent to a safe/reliable address where he can pick them up. Many places, like B&H, will not ship to a hotel. Is there any way around this? I don't know anyone in the city.

How can I archive my phone's text messages for future reference, without paying a lot in money or effort?
How can I make an archive of my SMS messages? In this era of network-accessible, searchable, archived, free, multi-gigabyte email storage, I'm a little miffed that my SMS storage is limited to arbitrary limit of 50 message on my phone. Lots of important things come in via SMS, and I hate how they just disappear. I get Twitters from friends, nice notes from my girlfriend, voice mail transcriptions from CallWave, business information via GOOG-411's text service... and so on. I'd like for the solution to cost as little as possible. I don't have an unlimited txt plan (I get a few hundred per month) so simply forwarding every SMS I receive and CCing every SMS I send to an email address isn't a very appealing solution as it really raises my SMS costs and takes effort.

I am needing a portal for multiple-client sign-in. I want my clients to be able to go to a common front page and enter their username and password and be taken to an area just for them. There will be messaging, files, video, audio, photos, etc. that is just for their use. Each client would need an area with their material. I have around 20-25 clients. I probably need no more than 250MB of storage for their "stuff' per client. What do I do? Something ready-to-go and hosted? Something I run from my own shared server? I'm not even sure what I am needing is called. Any comments/suggestions appreciated - thanks for the help!
