Peter, a frequent commenter, is off overseas shortly and asks how to access DA crosswords from far away on the last post.
RV and Ian chimed in with a very handy suggestion, something I’d never heard of before and might be of interest to any one of you, and here they are in their own words:
Peter, if you can access the SMH smart edition you can see online the newspaper as it is in print, including the crossword. If you have a subscription to the SMH the smart edition access comes with it. you can also subscribe directly to the smart edition for a fee. any other way to see DA when away?
Yes, SMH Smart edition is what I do. Being a Melburnian but wanting the crossie on Friday like it always was, I buy a single edition every Friday ($2 a pop), navigate to the right page, and there is an option to print a selected area of the page. $2 is less than the coffee I drink while doing it.
