Whew, Jess, you HAVE been giving this a lot of attention. It's been a wild few weeks here with all the changes and tweaking. I do appreciate the energy you've been putting in to keep this place as functional as possible, even if I don't use/notice some of the features.
Thanks. I am somewhat relieved to be through the bulk of it.

The little page icon that links to the specific post seems to be missing from the narrow layout:
This bug is now fixed. All posts have a "link" button at the top of the post, along with the other post functions. Clicking the "link" button will reload the page with a direct link to that post, at which point you can copy the link from the address bar and paste it elsewhere.

Patrick, for finding and reporting this bug, I hereby grant you the MV Entomologist award. Wear it with pride.

I've just switched off the special iOS version that we've had for over a decade -- iOS users will now see the same mobile layout as Android users.

For the first time in a very long time, everyone (desktop, iOS, Android) is using the same version of the site.

No worries Jess. To be honest I don't use the Blackberry for anything other than phoning and texting nowadays.

I just thought I'd check out of interest

I used to have a banner that displayed for IE6 users, urging them to upgrade to a newer browser. It actually pissed off a handful of people who were stuck on Windows XP.

At this point, I should probably just actively refuse to serve pages for IE6.

IE6 release date: October 16, 1995
Windows XP release date: October 25, 2001


If you are still using either in 2021.. you should be ashamed of yourself and punished by the whole internet with no compatibility. At this point, even institutional infrastructures like banking software that depended on maintaining IE6/Windows XP support for far too long due to code compatibility and cost of re-writing their institutional code.. should be shamed and fired for not taking care of that in the last 20 yrs given the security issues with both.

Regarding Blackberry users in 2021.. you get my respect! I wish I still had a smart phone equivalent to either one of my original cell phones:

back when they were called car phones and my parents left this one in the glove box permanently in case of break down or emergency only.

first legit cell phone we all started carrying everywhere and using like a normal mobile phone over the previous pagers.

Using IE6 in 2021 is the equivalent to still using one of those phones!

They do make a modern smart flip phone with folding screen but that stuff is waaaay too expensive for me! I'm so sick of large phones.

Yep! And agreed, it looks better with a bit of space around them.
