How can I renew a subscription in $

  Harrier man 17:35 24 Jan 2005

A site I have subscribed to for a few years use to charge in dollars or Euros depending on where the billing address said I lived. This year, I am only offered renewal in Euros no matter what is entered in the billing address. I assume that the site is somehow auto-detecting something about me. However, I want to pay in $. Does anyone know what's going on and if there is a trick or work-around so that I can take advantage of the weak dollar?

Think about it, it's no trick it is just that they are trying to protect themselves from the reduced revenue the weak dollar will bring.It doesn't need to auto detect, it just wants the initial price charged, which has been eroded through no fault of theirs. If they had only a small margin originally, todays rate could mean a loss, which would obviously be unacceptable.
