Getting back to the discussion on article limits from a few weeks ago, I've just tried to get at an FT article from my non-registered browser, and discover that I'm now limited to 8 articles per 30 days. Wasn't it more than that?

"In 1984, there was nothing like William Forsythe’s Artifact, a full-length ballet that is both narrative and abstract, that tells the story of ballet itself in ways at once traditional and entirely contemporary. Thirteen years later, there is still nothing quite like it: it looks as shockingly original as on the day it was made." (Sarah Crompton, Telegraph).

Err....is it just me, or are we in 2012 and not 1997 ??!!!
