Comments on: The Red Sweater Review Of Instapaper’s Archiving Of John Siracusa’s Review Of Mountain Lion 10.8 http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/2629/the-red-sweater-review-of-instapapers-archiving-of-john-siracusas-review-of-mountain-lion-10-8 Mac & Technology Writings by Daniel Jalkut Sun, 16 Mar 2014 19:39:31 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.1 By: Peter Bierman http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/2629/the-red-sweater-review-of-instapapers-archiving-of-john-siracusas-review-of-mountain-lion-10-8/comment-page-1#comment-272720 Mon, 30 Jul 2012 10:42:02 +0000 http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/?p=2629#comment-272720 I was waiting for someone to review Marco’s review of Siracusa’s review! Sadly, I think you could have done a more detailed analysis of Marco’s deconstruction of Siracusa’s latest work. I must conclude that you can be easily distracted by shiny new features. Perhaps another reader here can provide additional insight by reviewing my review of your review of Marco’s review of John’s review.

Only the bookmarklet can save pages behind a login barrier, but Ars doesn’t require a login. And there’s a weird Javascript bug in Safari that often crashes the tab when the bookmarklet tries to crawl the high number of pages in a Siracusa review on Ars. So, for Ars, the server-side multipage crawling is the most reliable option.

The night before Siracusa’s review was published, I added a new, as-yet-undocumented option to Instapaper’s bodytext configurations, “always_fetch_from_server”, and set that to “yes” for Ars Technica. This forces the bookmarklet to skip its content-capturing and multipage-fetching routines and just send the URL so the server will crawl it.

Unfortunately, the bookmarklet doesn’t provide any indication to the user that this has happened. I’ll try to figure out a good solution to that.
