MLB.tv blackout workarounds?

(Asking for a friend): I am a Chicago Cubs fan living in NC, which means that I don't fall within the blackout restrictions put in place by mlb.tv. The league blacks out games that fall in the "home area" of a team; for NC, those are Atlanta, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Washington. ATL and CIN are not a problem, because those games are shown on local cable; however, the other 2 are not. Anyone know of a way around this? I have Preferred TV cable package w/Time Warner (only choice in my area). Would rather not have cable at all. Thanks.

Am I overreacting to proxy invites?

I work in the head office for a hotel chain and know hotel managers all over North America. I travel quite a bit for work and because of my job, I stay free. Occasionally with my accumulated air miles I will go somewhere for a getaway and as long as I am careful to avoid peak times, I can usually stay at one of our facilities free as a professional courtesy. If the room is going to be empty, I feel no guilt at hanging my hat there for a night or two. Often I invite someone along for company and to share in my perk. The problem is when someone invites someone else along. And occasionally that someone invites someone else along as well. [more inside]

Proxying: How do we Stop Worrying and Love the Squid?

Is Squid the Right Solution in a Windows Ecosystem? Recently, I was involved in giving a demonstration of some of our company's Web Services at a customer's site. Our services needed to go out and send HTTPS requests to other companies. Normally, external network access and hardening is left up to the customer. Between firewalls and politics, it was left to me to fix using one box in the DMZ. I had some experience maintaining a personal Squid proxy/cache (for sites such as Slashdot/Pandora), so I got approval to stand one up... [more inside]

Finding a safe Swedish proxy for watching video content?

I want to watch Swedish television via the web, but much of the content is blocked geographically and available within Sweden only. I prefer free, but I'm willing to pay a nominal monthly/yearly amount. I did locate this company during my Google search - I don't know if this service is overkill for my needs. Is it safe to use a foreign proxy and would it be wise to install the proxy on a separate router? I have no idea how any of this works.
