Are you tired of those irritating subscription pop-ups? Do you have to delete your cookies several times a day? In your opinion, is “delete your cookies” one of the most annoying phrases in the English language? Do you wish there was a more enjoyable way to steal content from the Times-Standard online?
Well, we did too, and let’s just say the da Vinci code it wasn’t. Ten minutes and two below-average IQs are pretty much all it took to defeat the paywall of one of the biggest media conglomerates in the world.
Here’s how to do it:
- Using Internet Explorer, click “Tools” and select “Internet Options” from the drop-down menu that appears.
- Under “Delete temporary files,” etc., click “Delete,” check the top three boxes on the new page that appears, and hit delete once more. This gets you started with a clean slate.
- You should be back at the “Internet Options” page again (under “Tools” if you get lost). This time select the “Privacy” tab at the top. About halfway down the page is the option “Sites.” Click it.
- In the “Address of website” box, add the following, in no particular order. After each address is typed into the small text box, hit “Block” and that address will be added to the larger text box.
2o7.net (that’s number 2, letter o, number 7)
- Hit “Okay,” then hit “Okay” again, and you’re welcome!
For tomorrow’s trick, we will piss up a rope. It looks kinda complicated, but since everyone keeps telling us to do it we might as well give it a try.
