How do I link to the print version of New York Times articles?

Everyone knows the New York Times requires you to register to read articles. Occasionally, I see people link to the article as well as to some slimmed-down bandwidth version for PDAs or RSS feeds or something. How do I make a link like that? When I find a New York Times article URL on the web, is there somewhere I can copy and paste that into that'll show me the slimmed-down version?

in general, tinyurl (just small urls, not registering).

Profwhat's link is great because it will give you a URL that doesn't expire after a week. You might also want to try using the "printer-friendly" page (it's there, in the right hand column, but you have to kind of scan for it) for your link.

Sadly you can't combine non-expiring and printer-friendly into one uber-link as far as I can tell. The link generator strips the printer-friendly bit out.

Just add &pagewanted=print to the end off your URL and you get the printer friendly version, even for the non-expiring links.
