Storing stuff in Vancouver, BC, self storage or pods??

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'm in Seattle) Plan to hire movers from Craigslist. Any advice graciously appreciated. Need to do this before the end of December. Thanks!

Lost in Orlando

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.

Where can I upload this file?

There is a file that I want to upload somewhere so that an infinite number of people can download it for free and without having to first sign up/become a member of anything. There should be no download limit and no expiration date. The file in question is less than 1mb in size, and is completely legal. Any suggestions?

Need help with a system (portal?) for client communication.

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!

Where do I keep my crap when I'm running in Central Park in NYC?

I don't live near Central Park, but I've always wanted to run in it. Assuming I'm in Manhattan for the day and I also have a day pack of non-running stuff, is there somewhere in or around the park where I can keep my stuff while I'm running around unencumbered? No, I don't have a car or any friends who live near there.
