Thanks, Patrish.
We are loooking forward to see the airport upon our arrival on April 21st.

Did you know that lately(I believe this started over the weekend), we cannot read the articles posted on www.myrtlebeachonline.com, unless we pay to become a member? :cry:

I was very surprised when it happened. I have been keeping myself informed thanks to this website these last 12 months. No more of that, unless we pay!

Could you read the link I posted?
Can't you sign up to join, without paying?

I am not paying anything, but I registered with The Sun News several years ago. I have not yet run into anything I am banned from accessing, but I seldom try to get past the headline news stores.

I saw the following on 11/6/2012 (be sure to read the comments following the editorial)

http://www.myrtlebeachonline.com/2012/1 ... gital.html

At the time, I thought well dang, I'll just get my news from other online outlets like WMBF. We do not subscribe to The Sun News, so I depend on online sources to get local news. But after that "announcement" I didn't notice many changes.

No.
When I click on your link, as soon as I get on the website and try to read the article, a window pops up that forces me to sign up.

It will let me sign up without paying, but then I would need to provide a credit card number.
No way. I am not going to fall into that trap. :boxing:

Hmmmm ... what is your magic trick? :twisted:

My husband just thought of something: we are currently in Montreal. What if "it" knows, by our ISP address, that we are out of the country?

I certainly will try it again when we are back in Myrtle Beach, in 3 weeks! :cool:

I have the same problem. You are allowed to view just so many articles a month then they tell you you will need to register to continue reading articles.
Just click the "x" in the address bar as soon as you can see the article but before the page fully loads. The registration request does not show up until the page fully loads. I have been reading articles this way for a while now. Might take a few times to get used to it but it does work. (At least until they find out about it)

Actually, all I did was push the "sign out" button and I was able to read the article. Great! :cool:
