geeky idea actually but when I'm on the road I try to grab me a free connection through wifi from time to time and check this site with my phone
so a lighter version that would be more suited for the small screen would be usefull

as said, just a geeky idea :)

Have you tried using opera mini on your cellphone? IMO it works a lot better than the default browser on the phones I have used over the years. It is possible not to download pictures, so it is pretty fast opening forums like this. I prefer the beta version of Opera Mini 4 because of the 'zoom' functionality.

More information here:

thanks for the tip, will try that
I did try some Opera but didn't like it as it didn't have a zoomfunction and I couldn't rotate the screen
the default on my N95 has these two options

will check the beta out though

Be aware that there is 2 different kind of Opera browser. Opera Mini and Opera Mobile.

I think Opera Mobile is the right choice for a phone like N95, but I am not sure.

I have a SE W810 with opera mini, which AFAIK is a 'lighter' version compared to Opera Mobile.

Phil often uses an N800, so I'll have to check on what he uses. Neither Mark or I are particularly mobile at the best of times :lol:

Well, on an N800 you don't really have the problems with the screen real estate :)
800x480 in what ... 6"? :) I want one of those ;)

I wouldn't want to hesitate a guess at what he uses such a screen for viewing :wink:

Hey, Dom, I have just seen the designer of the great iphone skin for the elforro.com forum is sharing his skin with others for free.
Main thing with a skin for mobile phones is of course that it loads fast. elforro's skin doesn't load avatar images, for instance - and probably not other images either. Which is great when on the move anyway.
elforro.com is vBulletin - I don't know how this differs from phpBB (or indeed if it does) but I have seen iPhone apps for phpBB forums, I guess all they really contain is the browsing capability and then a CSS skin? Usually "hardwired" to connect to some special forum.

You mean people actually want to have TMC follow them around? Mark and I are always trying to get away from this place! :lol:
Cheers for the information though Zix. I'll mention it to the others on the team, and see if we can sort something out!
