However this isn't working as for some reason the Proxy says hotlinking isn't allowed or it takes me to an unidentified page. I've tried several other proxies but no luck yet. Let me know if you find one that will load. I'll keep trying! (Told you it would be 3 hours)
This proxy server with simple layout seems to do the job here, so give it a whirl on AWeb. I pulled it off a handy website that has compiled a huge list of proxy servers (see HERE).
