Mobile Site Updates

I don't have all that much time right now but I decided to do some mobile site updates that make using the mobile site easier now that more of you are using it.

1. You are now presented with the login box, when trying to leave a commit from the mobile site, and not logged in. Thanks (e:fellyconnelly) for catching this. I had no idea what people meant when they were saying comments were not working.

2. The contact links now work. e.g. post it and email link.

3. The search box is more efficient and no longer has a default value. It also has a search button for phones that don't submit with the enter key being pressed in a form field.

4. I added a before/after journals section to the bottom of any mobile journal page that shows the previous and next 5 journals as links by title making it easier to jump around on a mobile phone. I may do the same for the main site at some point in the future.

5. Got rid of useless mobile nav links that were cluttering mobile nav. The TOS link, the defunct WAP site, epad. Limited messages view to last 10 so that it loads better on mobiles.

IE 6/7 support Question

Does anyone care anymore. If the new estrip was IE8, Firefox, Safari only and IE 6/7 users had to use the mobile site would anyone even care?

The upload button and chatter

Adobe release Flash Player 10 today

It has a bunch of new security protections and a bunch of new features.

It also effected the way that the surebert flash player multi-file uploader worked. The new version I reprogrammed the other night is flash player 10 compliant. Luckily, I jumped on that because I had no idea they were going to launch it today.

If you don't have at least flash player 9 if will put a link there instead of the upload button.

While I was in there I also updated the chatter so that you can use ampersands and pluses.

Browser Stats for estrip

Firefox still is the top. Look how few people visit with safari. Reading mac news sites you would think it was like 90% of the web, lol.

Chrome is still nothing
image

However, I am srprised to see how many people are using IE 6 but then I realize that Roswell Park, where a bunch of us work, is still stuck back in 2001 browser technology land and it makes sense.

The cost of estrip this month

Holy crap. My first FIOS bill from Verizon to serve estrip came today and it is $321!!

That is for one month and some weeks of service, plus setup fee, plus router, plus taxes. It looks like it will be about $115.00/month. So if anyone wants to/can donate that would be awesome as I pay for that all out of pocket. You can donate by clicking on the donate link above the userpics to the right.

The move is complete

The new server is now running over at (e:fing)'s It should be much faster than before. Tell me if you notice anything weird.

Now that I pay $100/month for estrip.org you all should entertain me with more journals or donate.

Estrip Downtime on thursday

There might be some downtime for estrip.org on tuesday. I am going to be moving to server from Artvoice to a private residence on a new business FIOS acct I opened for estrip. This might cause some downtime depending how I end up doing the DNS switchover.

Don't worry - nothing will go be lost - the server is just physically moving locations.
