I was thinking of doing a script that adds the proxy address to the 
.htaccess and then removes it after half hour. But as stated in a another 
thread the proxies the guy is using goes well into the hundreds.

how would the port redirect work? is this just the error document 404 in 
.htaccess? This would be futile with tools such as Goldeneye etc.
