Today I have discovered a very simple way to get around it:
1. In Firefox, under Tools, select Options…
2. Under General, click on Connection Settings…
3. Type in “188.8.131.52” in HTTP Proxy field, “80” in Port field, and check Use this proxy server fro all protocols. (more proxy IPs can be found here)
4. Click OK to return to browser screen and enjoy the show.
Reverse the steps if you are paranoid about unknown proxy servers.
Update: Feb. 27, 2006 - Michael Belisle is a little bit butt-hurt about how he was “the one first discovered public proxy servers.” To prove his point, he has even included a link to his recent comment on my site.
To be honest, I did not even notice his previous comment until I received his comment today sounding like a cry-baby.
I am sorry Michael, would you like some cookies
ps. Michael, perhaps you have also invented the internet just like Al Gore?
