I’m not Swedish…

Working for a large Swedish company, and having their standard IT offering (laptop / phone etc), in many respects could be regarded as a good thing. No, change that, it is good, I’m employed and payed a reasonable (but never enough) recompense for my efforts. But being large, they have the ubiquitous IT policy, which means every time you connect to the internet on their equipment, it’s through a proxy in Sweden. Which wouldn’t be a problem if some websites didn’t try to be so bloody smart and guess where you’re coming in from and change the language of the page that’s served up to you! Google, please note, I don’t *do* Swedish, and to all other web site developers, if you’re going to do it, make it obvious at the top of the page where you can change language. Rant over.
