proxy in the clouds…

two different proxies used...

The most interesting part was then to google some buzzwords and see how many hits one gets with an american ip and how many hits one gets with a european ip – in some cases there is a huge difference ;-)

For all of you who would like to try it yourselves, I’ve written a how-to, which you can download in the articles section of this site. Have fun…!

And that takes more guts than I’ve seen from anyone in Washington, except maybe Bernie Sanders.
