Frustrated by the Internet standing in the way of your Idolator fix? Are the 404 errors that some of you are seeing on the site slowly driving you mad? Turns out that they can be avoided–albeit in a manner that results in a ton of pop-up ads–by visiting an anonymizer site such as the delightfully out-of-date Borat Proxy. Whether the comment function works using this method remains to be seen (and if you have other suggested proxies, please e-mail them our way), but at the very least, you’ll be able to see what we write about Pete Wentz later.

    @Silverfuture: Yeah, the problems are intermittent. Like over the weekend, I was getting 404s, but the other computer in my apartment — which is about 15 feet away from mine and running off the same wireless router — was getting to the site fine. I heard that certain DNS servers were horking up virtual hairballs, resulting in people from all over the world being greeted with “page not found” errors on Idolator’s homepage. Fun! (“Fun.”)
