Does Jorn's

Does Jorn's workaround for the NYTimes still work? I tried http://partners.nytimes.com/library/financial/personal/070900personal-napster.html only to find myself directed to a login page. Has The Man finally got wise?

I don't know if The Man got wise, but the Old Grey Lady sure did. The "partners" links stopped working a couple of weeks ago.

Try http://www10.nytimes.com/ instead. I can't do a valid test because I've registered, but I read on /. that it still works.

I can confirm that www10 works, as I have not logged in and can still see it.

Thanks brad, syrynx, owillis.

I'm sure that someone will ultimately kill me for this ..

I'm don't know who started it, but the account "cipherpunk" is a fairly well-known username and password combination for free/registration sites like the NY Times. The policy for using the account follows.

1. You may use "cipherpunk" (pass: cipherpunk).
2. If you frequently use the account and come across a service which doesn't have the account, create it.

I generally avoid The New York Times Online on general principle. Why give them hits when equal or superior journalism is available elsewhere on the 'Net?

...by places which don't insist you jump hoops just to read the latest headlines?

zach: can you list those places (of superior journalism)?

It should usually be spelled

username: cypherpunk
password: cypherpunk

It's amazing how many websites this works for. If it gets deleted somebody always seems to recreate it.

Then again, I've never been truly concerned about the Old Grey Lady knowing of my secret passion for the columns of William Safire. They'll never know that I read him with my pants off....

(and Zach, say what you will about the Times well known biases, but there is hardly better journalism elsewhere on the planet.)

i don't know... given the Times' well known biases, less well known violations of ethics, and general function as a mouthpiece for the elite, that's not saying a whole lot.
