I can confirm more than 300 dead with pictures of more than 10 bigboards with pictures/name/rank/age from kiev(june). ex.:
It was a sad day when i uploaded the pictures to google+ and it started to ask me to identify the faces.

Flew out the only safe way : Moscow. (80% russians aboard)

Yea, i reply to my own post, but this tip is golden :!
You can stay with people at their homes, usually they have a room or even a guesthouse(happened once but they also had servants). Since they already are on couchsurfing You can assume they have internet and power. You will probably be able to find a lot of prospects for your trip where the hosts have some of your interest

oh... And according to one of the girls i met you do not always have to sleep with your host(s)

Check price and length of Visa. It varies from country to country. Europe is mainly EU(Schengen) and three months is the standard tourist visa. Then you have to leave for three months before coming back. For American citizens EU is free. There is also other countries around EU that is cheap.
As long as you do not get paid from the EU you do not need a work Visa.
I travel SE Asia a lot and live in EU. Theoretically it is possible to do what you want. WIFI and electricity is available most places. If you find a quiet corner in a cafe they will love you for spending money all day even if it is just coffee.

Technically it looks like he want's to punish everyone who use a knife equally harsh, for cutting an ex's tires or killing him with it. Then he will go after the vandalism or murder separately.
Hacking is not worse than owning a knife but both can be used to break laws. To accept laws that would make either a crime, is just nonsense.

I'm traveling trough Asia right now and i use MapsWithMe on both my iPhone and Android. I have to select which country i want to download and after a usually short download i got all major roads in the selected country. A country like Laos is 2Mb, but the country has few roads. Norwegian map is 50Mb++
The app is quite simple though. It show where you are trough the GPS and the map, thats all. Its really quick and 100% offline. I use Airplane mode for long treks on bus to save battery
They have versions for Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod and Amazon Kindle Fire.

I have tried the free Locus, but for me its just to bloated. I only need map.

No it's not called anonymity of the crowd. If You want an example: You are writing something! with your name on it! and posted it on a searchable part of the web.
How You can claim anonymity on something like that is a mystery for me.
It's nothing you said in a crowd where no one knows You at all.
Neither is it something You said to a friend in a crowd where no one else knows You.
It's something You published on the web under Your name.

Your naivety about writing something on the web and expecting it to be forgotten just shows how little You know about computers and after that I just lost interest.

after that I just lost interest.........

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?
