7 I used the service, and the service determines my location with the
8 utmost precision.
10 I tried the following trick: an "anonymizer". Basically, I accessed
11 web-based proxy services and in the dialog I inserted
12 The list:
14 The results:
16 is identified TX (Texas), United States.
17 is identified as an anonymous proxy.
18 is identified B8 (Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur), France.
19 is identified GA (Georgia), United States.
20 is identified TX (Texas), United States.
22 and finally what I wanted:
23 is identified H9 (London), United Kingdom.
25 Do you think on the day of the GP BBC will consider my location as
26 London? Does anyone know by any chance some other web-based proxy
27 services that would identify as from the UK?

33 Here I have a problem. I already connect to the Internet through a
34 transparent proxy managed by my University. I tried to use this proxy
35, and that after having established
36 connection. However, any web page fails to download. Do you know if it
37 is at all possible to use the above UK proxy address on top of the
38 mandatory proxy address that I have to use to simply have an Internet
39 connection?

45 Again, my proxy problems: all content coming from the above site tries
46 to access some funny port, and both mplayerplug-in and
47 gecko-mediaplayer fail (when using either Opera or Firefox).
