How to get on the Albany NY Radio Board* With An Old Browser

* and many other websites

One of the places where New York's broadcast journalists go to avail themselves of business buzz (and a lot of gossip) is Radio-Info. But modern technology has made that difficult for some. The programming gods have figured out ways to keep you out of certain sites if they don't like your old browser.Problem is, you may be verrrry happy with that old copy of Firefox or Opera. Maybe your PC won't download or your Operating System can't handle any of the "new-fangled" varieties of browser. Not to worry!

(1) Head over to Google(2) Type in something associated with a recent topic on the board

(3) Go in through the link - if it doesn't get you there - click on the little word "cached" and PRESTO!(4) Hit that little "GO" button (change the location on the drop down menu if you wnat, say the New York City board)(*)I'm sure the coders are working overtime to come up with a way to thwart this method of gaining access. Until they do, enjoy! Don't be afraid to experiment with this technique on other sites that ban browsers!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
