Nah, that's exactly what I do not want anyone to achieve -- the anyone needs a proxy to see all content. *stubborn look*

Yeah, of course I did -- aweful! (BTW, I am not tunneling my traffic through a Chinese proxy. :-P) Politics aside, this is also technically different. The whole intrastructure in China is designed to be filtering, so there is no need to check IP addresses for Google China (being inside the Great Firewall), since the physical cabels are connected in a way that traffic to Google US is blocked anyway. But Google US obviously checks my IP to prevent me seeing some content. Perhaps they think I'm in East Germany? a) Maybe I should enlighten them that it doesn't matter anymore. b) I am not in East Germany, anyway. :-P **Henrik -- Relay 13 is running:
