No access to Pandora.com :(
Not really a complaint, but since it's not the Internet in general, I didn't know where else to put this?

Back in the UK, I used to put on www.pandora.com while I was at work. Basically, it's an internet radio which is free to use - you put in a song title or artist, and it then raids a massive database of music and plays you songs that are similar to it. You can pay to be able to skip tracks, or choose specific songs, or you can access for free and just let it play away on whatever comes up.

So today, I have a ton of stuff to unpack from the office move, and I figured some music would be nice while I did it - however the site gives me the following message:

I'm a little bit gutted about this, I found loads of wierd and wonderful bands and tracks from Pandora picking them out based on a track I liked - I know it's a long shot, but does anyone know of anything similar that is available in Switzerland?

Re: No access to Pandora.com :(
I have a friend who is still using Pandora in Switzerland by using a proxy server. If you don't know what that is, it has been discussed on this site before, or a quick Google search should also turn up lots of info.
