NYTimes for free

For about 6 years now, I've gotten most of my news from the New York Times website. Until recently, there was a subscription fee to access certain parts of the site - the archives, and many of the opinion pieces. Effective at midnight tonight, it's all free. Apparently, the projected advertising revenues from increased site traffic outweighed the income from subscription fees.

I realize that maybe no one besides me will care, but I figured I would mention it anyway, just in case any of you are occasional NYTimes readers, or have a penchant for looking up old news articles.
