I went to bed and it was 68 degrees.  I woke up and I had lost almost half of my degrees.

anyone have tips for circumventing newspaper paywalls?

i've tried incognito mode.. doesn't usually work.

i've tried google searching article links and opening the story cache.. works 25% of the time or less.

 

i'd like to read a couple stories in the local paper on a daily basis but not willing to spend the $13 a month for online access/home delivery. the sports section is typically about 6 pages and that's 50% of the total volume that isn't advertising. hard pass at that cost.

I can see why you wouldn't want to pay 21 cents per article.  Darned journalists and their lavish lifestyles.

i'm not made of money, Henry.

I must have misunderstood.  It sounded like you read two a day.  

Edit: you did say you read two "on a daily basis."  Which is like 60 articles a month.

For wanting to steal $150/year from those billionaire journalists so you can enjoy their labor daily? Pah-lease. Screw those out of touch Richie Richs and their fancy "words" and "information".

My workaround is hitting Ctl-A/Ctl-C as soon as the article loads (before the paywall blocks me) and then I Ctl-V what I captured to word. :bag:  60% of the time it works 100%.

Something to do with mumblecore or trailing away in your sentences, maybe?

But it's generally not a good thing. No sir, it isn't.

Just pay and support local news.  Before you know it they’ll all be bought out and we’ll be getting our news from one source.  We’re already well on our way.

In some cases, the paywall goes away if you whitelist the site on your adblocker.   Washington Post is like that.   It gives you a choice of disabling your adblocker or buying a subscription.

I am in continuing education hell. I have to swallow about 10 hours of webinars this week, so that my employer and my professional organization will be satiated by the end of the month. Of course, I'm still doing two jobs through the end of the month too. Not enough cabbage in the world....

Why two jobs?  Just a usual work "promotion" where you get more responsibility but not much more money?

Our main surgical coder took the second half of November off to take his family to South Africa, where his parents still live. I have to complete his job functions as well as my own. So far, I have not been offered overtime. I also 'volunteered' to work a full day on Sat 11/30, as long as I could keep Black Friday.
