I decided to try to see why it would require that, first I of course had 
to try with FF & UA switcher, but as that didn't work out I tried with 
IE - just to find out that:

"We're sorry, but MTV Overdrive is available in the US only."

Somehow I got a feeling, that if I flew over and tried again, I'd get 
messages like:
"We're sorry, but MTV Overdrive is not available for vegetarians - go 
eat some meat"
"We're sorry, but MTV Overdrive is not available bicycle riding hippies 
- go get yourself a proper SUV!"

Yes, I know, I know - just couldn't resist :-)

Especially true if you've been up all night to meet a deadline... 
despite the temptation, do sleep a couple hours before putting it live.
