Harvard Business Review DISABLED?

The Harvard Business Review (HBR) recipe with a subscription (username and password) isn't working. Here's the error message:

Has anyone found a solution? Any suggestions? Calling HBR and asking for a non-java login didn't work

There is no solution other than to go to amazon.com and subscribe to kindle edition of hbr.

That clearly is the easiest solution... in fact, not a solution to a problem with a calibre recipe/java at all.

As I said, I currently have an online subscription to HBR so paying another $72 a year for the Kindle edition just doesn't sound right.

Anyone else have a walk around to this issue?

The creator of Calibre and author of Harward Business Review recipe states this:

There is nothing else to say. This problem can not be resolved in Calibre. So you have these options:

pay for kindle subscription
get a tablet and read the magazine there
learn python and add the support for javascript login to calibre
continue to wait for solution
