Ah, you didn't state that you wanted to login .. I don't have a nytimes account so didn't
And I've noticed that there are quite a few websites that are built to deliberately make
to be posted into forms.

I added to it.
It was a few years ago now, but I recall that I created a global cookie-jar object, and
added cookies to it that were encountered using the http scheme. And when sites were
being accessed that had cookies in the jar, I sent them. Some sites used up to 6 cookies,
and it seemed to handle those okay, as well as handling redirections. It wasn't perfect,
but it did the job I needed to do.
As for posting, I'll have to discuss with Carl. Posting the schemes, modified or not,
seems to be a breach of the sdk license.
