If you left an ebay notebook on the boat you could just connect to it with gotomypc or one of its clones.
Sorry, but most of these would require some sort of port forwarding on the router, since the incoming request would have to be delivered to the computer.

Also, a proxy server really doesn't help in most cases.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
