Muppet News Flash!

We interrupt this blog for a very special news bulletin.

After decades of secrecy, today, the truth has finally been revealed.

Snuffleupagus’ first name is Aloysius.

In other breaking news, the Atlantic Ocean has been kidnapped!

Film at 11.

Small updates in progress…

Updating some backend stuff. Should be done in 10. If the website hiccups, a page reload should clear it up.

EDIT: Done!

Bypass a website with a reading quota

Have you ever been looking at a website and suddenly run into something like this?

Reading Quota 1

Reading Quota 1

Some websites like to set up a quota so you can only view their webpages a certain number of times before you have to sign up for an account or have to pay them a fee.

Most of the time, there’s a real easy way around this.

Just look at the URL of the blocked page in the top of your web browser. In the example above it was….

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/9b8e66a6-1a3c-11df-b4ee-00144feab49a,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F9b8e66a6-1a3c-11df-b4ee-00144feab49a.html%3Fftcamp%3Drss%26nclick_check%3D1&_i_referer

Yuck. Looks pretty complex, right? Don’t worry. All we need to do it look for the word FALSE in the first part of that mess.

Once you find it, just change the word false to true.

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/9b8e66a6-1a3c-11df-b4ee-00144feab49a,Authorised=true.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F9b8e66a6-1a3c-11df-b4ee-00144feab49a.html%3Fftcamp%3Drss%26nclick_check%3D1&_i_referer

Now press ENTER in your web browser!

You can also just type the headline of the blocked article into GOOGLE and most of the time they’ll give you a direct link to the same article.

I wonder how much these companies spent on some cyber consulting group for this high tech security setup?
