Can Variety use a proxy?

Yes.

Variety works with Ubuntu's global proxy setting (you need to restart Variety after you change this setting).

Also, if you set the HTTP_PROXY environment variable to the IP of an http proxy, Variety will use it - for example, run it with:
HTTP_PROXY=http://proxy.myproxy.com:8080 /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety -v
Replace http://proxy.myproxy.com:8080 with the address of a proxy server you'd like to use.
