Proxy Servers: a brief "Why", and "How to".
A proxy server sits between you machine and the web; all requests for web sites are directed to the proxy, which forwards them on to the actual resource, such as google.com. The proxy receives responses, and forwards them to the requesting machine. In many organisations, this mechanism is used to filter web traffic, both to police users' usage, and to remove dodgy stuff attached to web pages before it can hit a PC and cause any damage.
To fool HDTracks.com into letting us buy stuff, we use the proxy server mechanism, but with a twist: we use a proxy server whose IP address is registered to the USA, so that HDTracks' filter thinks that that is where we are.
A number of Forum members (including me) have successfully used http://www.ProxySolutions.net for this service, but some have been put off because they think the process requires a far higher degree of technical ability than in the case.
I started to produce a "How to" guide, but then found that Proxy Solutions does a far better, and more complete, job than I would have managed,
so here it is..
Hope this helps.

Always buy the very best you can afford, or the cheapest; anything else is a compromise, and compromises seldom satisfy.
