Hello! I am only moderately computer literate so I need some help from all you computer geniuses! I live in Japan but am an American with an American computer (that is to say, probably assembled in China but has an English OS, ha!) I am constantly annoyed when I search the web, because web pages (like google) recognize that I am in Japan somehow, and of course all the content is in Japanese. Also, I have an online game I would like to play but apparently "this content is only available to residents of US and Canada". Is there some way to change my IP or SOMETHING so that other computers and sites will think I am in the US? Is there some sneaky computer genius thingy I can do so I can access US-only sites? Help! :-) Thanks.
Amber
