Asking would have worked. http://www.unixuser.org/~euske/vnc2swf/
The entire thing was done on Linux.  I just had to have a way to 
_show_ the windows-using crowd what goes on and how firefox deals with

That's OK.  It wasn't "OMFG Microsoft is not playing fair!", it was 
"OMFG I _thought_ I'd get them to fix the disgrace and expose them, 
instead it seems I _confirmed_ how impervious to bad press they are, 
instead."  Perhaps I could have made that clearer.  

The point was not that that page couldn't be looked at, it was that MS
was pulling that off in Turkey, while not attempting it elsewhere (not
in the US at least).

It wouldn't be, it should be off by a few pixels.  Vnc2swf has a
macromedia bug mode that I used.

I am sure folks had fun, tho.
