LugRadio Live registration FAIL

Today I tried to register for LugRadio Live USA 2008, seeing that I will be in San Franciso this Friday. Apparently, their payment provider doesn’t like my IP address (or ISP).

NOCHEX - Secure Online Payments
Declined: We do not currently process transcations from the country your Internet Service Provider is located in.

Yes, I could login to a foreign VPN (servers in Sweden for my employer), or I could tunnel via SSH and use a SOCKS proxy to the various machines I have access to around the world. But I think that’s just too much effort, for silly Nochex. Welcome to the globalised 21st century.

Instead I’ve emailed Jono Bacon. I hope that suffices as a pre-registration. I can fork out the ten bucks in cash ;)
