New Scientist article limit

The New Scientist website has recently started imposing an article limit for non-paying users.

New Scientist Ad Block

As anyone with any familiarity with JS and jQuery (which, the New Scientist webmasters kindly already supplied) would do, I coded a little bookmarklet to get rid of this annoyance.

javascript:$('#haasOverlay').hide();javascript:$('#fadeBackground').hide();

To use it, just create a new bookmark in your browser and paste the text above as the URL.
When presented with the article limit block, simply open the bookmark and the block will vanish!
