Pandora is Dead..... Long Live Pandora!

It's true.
This morning, when I tried Pandora for the last time, the gates were shut...

Dear Pandora Visitor,

We are deeply, deeplysorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allowaccess to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. Wewill continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a trulyglobal Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict itsuse. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no otheralternative.
That being said........ there are options.  You could go to the Anonymizer, and use their Anonymous Surfing package... just $29.99/year - and then, if you are a wee Canadian, the rghts and priviledges of all Americans are available to you; namely being able to watch NBC's Jericho Episodes on the net.

I wonder how long it will be before services like Anonymizer are also headlocked by nutty internet policies?
Of course, there are also the free anonymous proxy servers as well, but it seems the best one is in Canada - which defeats the purpose of what we are trying to achieve here ;-)

Sigh.
