skype fail

While in Japan, relying on Skype for communication, Skype locked my account due to suspicious activity — I assume the suspicious activity was me being in Japan.

So before travel, I need to call all my credit cards, and also Skype. How do I even tell Skype I'll be travelling? (update: I talked to a skype agent, and they say this isn't currently supported, but they promised to put it in the suggestion box)

I hate automated fraud detection. It doesn't have me in mind. It is meant for lay people who's password is "password", who don't travel, who don't write scripts to login and automate their web services using machines running in EC2.
