Times- Standard Dumps Paid Archives?

I'm not sure, but it looks like they might have. I just did a search for a news item there and got returns from older than two weeks. I haven't found any that were from other than 2006, so far, but that's still better than the links going dead after two weeks.

Here's a link to a John Driscoll commentary dated 1/23/06. Let's see if it works.

Yep. It does.

I've noticed this, too. Glad to see they are heeding the call for change. Now if they would just publish their letters to the editor on-line.

They probably won't if only because the letters section is supposed to be one of the most read sections of any paper, or so I'm told. They need to have some reason for people to buy the hard copy version.

Then again, other pay papers have them online, too, like the Sacramento Bee.

They could solve that by holding the letters for a week or a few days, that way to get the current diatribes, you'd still need the paper.

Nothing wrong with posting old stuff though.
