    The website will probably know your location from your IP address.

    I don`t think there`s much you can do about it. It`s definitely not a regional settings issue.

    Regards Howard :)

    You could use a proxy server, but I have no idea whether that's legal or not and I'm not going to post a link.

    It depends how you use it, i dont think its illegal. some people do it for security reasons...
