There's an easy enough way to bypass the pay wall lads. Keep your money in your pocket.

It's like you're being thick on purpose. It would be nice to read this thread without you saying this over and over again.

I signed up previously for these free access sites posted here and elsewhere. Needless to say I never used them due to the hassle involved in accessing the free content.

Is it fairly comprehensive like front pages for a given date or is it high level, selective and thrown into the mix as a 'feature' but of little use?
It's very comprehensive and searchable. I searched for a minor figure in Irish football from the 60s and it threw up nearly 20 articles. You can also search for a specific day's newspaper.

Incognito mode in Chrome works to get around their paywall restrictions. You can click around to your hearts content with it enabled.

I think next week's opinion piece lumps anyone who does this in with ultra right wing death camp operators and russian hackers.

Don't be ridiculous, that would suggest negative connotations towards the alt-right. They wouldn't dare associate such interesting people with something as unscrupulous and socialist as getting online content for free.

I think a reasonable inference is that those who choose to pay a subscription for online content are supporters of the alt right. Whereas those that chose to read the exact same online content for free are amoral socialists.

From reading the Irish Times I think we're pretty much all alt-right unless we've done a permanent house swap with a transgender Syrian archi-doc-gineer.

Is that child's wifi still live in Aleppo? And would you need a proxy to read Una Mullalys daily bounty of joy over there?

I'm seriously considering it like.

How do the supplements (weekend magazine, weekend review etc) with with the epaper? Are they available in epaper format too? I'd love if they did a sample in the app so I could see how it works. Very tempted to subscribe.

Yes, when you select the paper thumbnails of the supplements appear at the bottom of the screen and you can select them.

I can post a few screenshots later if you want.
