Bug Me Not!

My web experience keeps getting easier! Anyone who has ever tried to read a linked news story from the NY Times or Washington Post, etc, and been confronted with a registration screen instead of the story will appreciate this. BugMeNot.com provides free logins and passwords for mandatory registration sites such as these. Just drag the bookmarklet link to your personal bar (in Opera, of course). When you come across a registration page, click the bookmarklet and a window will pop up with a login and password for that site. Great. The only problem I've encountered is with file download sites like www.fileshack.com. If someone else logs in with the same id, your download will get cancelled. :-( Bummer.
