A place to talk about stuff that has nothing to do with Java.
I heard about this site on NPR this weekend.Basically, if you want to read an article on the NYTimes.com website -- you need to register first. Its free. But its still a pain to register for all these news sites.BugMeNot.com has a repsitory of a bunch of login names for various websites. So, for the NYtimesBugMeNot gives a username/passwordthat you can use to view this lovely article aboutPeter Jackson suing NewLine.Pretty slick huh?--------------------- Jess Got an extra pint?

i've had it installed for quite a while as a plugin for firefox. it works ok, but it ONLY works with everyone's help. SOMEBODY has to create that ficticious account. every so often, the sites will wise up, and delete the bogus ones. then somebody has to create another one.But overall, it's VERY cool...oh, and p.s. there is a bug-me-not login here at the JavaRanch...[ June 28, 2005: Message edited by: fred rosenberger ]--------------------Please consider a donation to my friend, who is doing a Komen 3-day walk.
ahhh.... here it is... although i expect it to be deleted very soon.
ya know... as long as someone gives it a non-obviously ficitious display name... then I think its a legit account... Funny that it already has 26 posts.
Yeah, I have been using bugmenot for a while. Really cool, and such as simple idea!--------------------The future is here. It's just not evenly distributed yet. - William Gibson
