Controlling an LCD with 3 lines from an arduino

I have a bunch of these old LCD boards, and instead of taking up 8 lines on the arduino, this nice tutorial shows out you can knock it down to 3 using a shift register.  Sure I could use a $10 shield to do the same thing, but this method is only 50 cents.
