Being the little geek I am I found it rather exciting that the Times have put online important news dates and articles...

Can be found here; http://archive.timesonline.co.uk/tol/archive/?OTC-HPtoppuff&ATTR=archive1861

I had just read the articles on Jack the Ripper and the Titanic.

There are soem interestign articles, if you look hard enough, but as far as I see on the main page, a lot of the articles are just the same old, typical things... What J7 linked was interesting though. Its tthe articles like that that are worthwhile.

Nifty, though I don't trust Time not to "alter" the articles to be more PC, or to reflect a newer viewpoint. I've seen news sites "update" and "dissappear" news articles, so I'll keep getting my papers in print format thank you.
