Afterworld: puzzling Alternate Reality Game

Hey guys,
I've currently run into a couple of weird ads while surfing online. Its of an image of a countdown clock and the face of a startling woman. Having done some research on these ads, I've discovered they're related to an online ARG called afterworld. The funny thing is, though, I have an American IP address, and so I'm directed to the American version of this ARG, which is entirely computer rendered and sort of cartoony. The original ad campaign that lured me in, however, was not computer rendered at all. In fact, their version of the game uses live action actors, and is apparently funded by the channel4 in England. Have any of you guys heard of this game? Does anyone know how I can trick the website into thinking I have an English IP address so I can view the UK version? Its really interesting stuff, and kinda creepy. For any of you who are in the UK, visit emergencysubnet.com, or look up Maia Sturn in youtube or google - the name of this game's protagonist, as far as I can tell.

Anyway, I've been dying to see what the British version of this game looks like, as the American version is sort of a letdown. So please, post back either with details on the site, or how to help this yank hide his ip address

thanks! and enjoy the game
