Bypassing logins for otherwise free content

I've been using this site for years, but I guess there are still a lot of folks that don't know about it.

There are a lot of websites around that provide free content but still require a username and password to access that content. I suppose they want to do this so they can generate more accurate data on visitors to their site. It's a fair and modest demand for a site that's providing valuable info, and I have accounts at many of these types of sites.


Looking for Slaughter family information

I am searching for any information on William Lonnie Slaughter (Sr). He was born in Oklahoma in either 1899 or 1900. The family moved from OK to MO then to the Santa Monica/Malibu area of California between 1900 and 1920. He was in the navy aboard the USS Idaho in 1920. He was married to Ida Pearl Mason and lived in San Diego in 1930 and had a daughter in 1924 named Helen Virgina Slaughter (she died in San Francisco in 1960's). Lonnie also had a son with Fern Vansant in 1926 (they were not married). We have some photos of this man with yet ANOTHER family and it looks to be around 1940-45. He was with a woman identified as Harriett, thier daughter Teresa/Theresa or Teressa and his brother Ted (Samuel Theodore Slaughter) at an unknown fishing cabin. Here is some extra info

SONY and the Great DRM Threat (Do not buy Sony music or music players)


A while back, I got into a heated discussion on a new Sony audio player called the HD5: HD5 doesn't play mp3s!!! The device claims to be an MP3 player, but in fact, it doesn't play MP3s at all. It will convert MP3s into a proprietary Sony format and then play them, but if you copy actual MP3 files to the device, it will not play them. I specifically wanted an MP3 player in order to manage my music the way I want to. I will not have anything whatsoever to do with audio files that have been crippled with "Digital Rights Management" (DRM). Unfortunately, most consumers are not aware that any time they buy music from Itunes, Microsoft, Sony, or many other distributors, they are buying music files that are crippled with DRM. You may look at this whole DRM controversy and say, "who cares?, it plays on my device." This may be true for you right now. However, if you ever find yourself involved in of the following tasks, you may change your tune:
