I can't duplciate the web but did you try setting your location? Example at http://www.labnol.org/internet/geo-location/27878/
This is maddening. I have subscribed to cheapskate USA for years and simply passing through Sydney airport captured my firefox web page bookmark and swapped this crappy local AU cnet connection instead. How do I get my original bookmark link to cnet.com/cheapskate to work again. Every time I try to log in to us edition, it automatically goes to oz version.
