@th getting through paywalls by using lynx
@holly @th lynx -useragent="Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"'
@holly @th yeah that works. not like i want to read the new york times anyway, :D what site is this?
@ringo @th It’s De Volkskrant. My Dutch hasn’t been good enough to justify a subscription, but I think I might have finally crossed that threshold, so maybe it’s time.
@holly @th ah =) wel at least it sounds worth reading. the NYT is a piece of trash.
@holly @th I've found 12ft.io works really well too!
Your method is cooler though 😃
@zeh @kingannoy @th Not nearly as fashionable as lynx, though
@holly @zeh @th I sincerely think Lynx is better because it doesn't rely on a external service (with unknown motives and risks) like I do with 12ft.io.
Jokingly I also think Lynx is better because it makes you look like a hacker!
@kingannoy @holly @zeh @th or use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bypass-paywalls-clean/
@holly @th How did I not know about lynx... :/
