AFAIK, I *am* one of the people with a financial membership...

So "ssh -D 1080 <some-server-in-au>" will get me a tunnel bound and 
forwarded (thanks, man), does this act as a tunnel to make it look as 
though I'm in Aus, as I am seeking? So the traffic just pops out at 
<some-server-in-au>? Couldn't be that easy, surely?

Who is the person looking after the PLUG machine (time for a Shameless 
plug, anyone?) these days?
