I can’t stop tinkering!

I know, I know… I just updated this site. What can I say? Despite the profound sociological implications of the modern web I attempt to ponder each and every day, I’m still shocked at how much darn fun it can be to design for and develop in.

The updates this time around are much smaller and have trickled out over the last week. They include:

  • Shortened URLs (using my own custom sticka.us domain running YOURLS) for even easier tweeting
  • Related posts (powered by YARPP, see them at the bottom of the single post view)
  • Browser icons accompanying comments (geeky!)
My feelings regarding these additions can be expressed quite succinctly: “Whee!”

(Apologies to Scott McCloud for the title of this post.)

Update: It was pointed out that mobile browsers (in this case, Android) had been ignored, so I added a few. Here is the list of currently supported browsers, let me know in the comments if yours is left out:

  • Android
  • BlackBerry
  • Blogger (Pingbacks)
  • Chrome
  • Drupal (Pingbacks)
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer
  • iPhone
  • Konqueror
  • Opera
  • Safari
  • WordPress (Pingbacks)

Cool. I may steal some of your improvements! But mostly I’m commenting so I can see my browser icon in my comment. :)

Ok, lets see what icon shows up for the Android browser.

Ha, Safari! That makes sense, I suppose. I’ll go have a look at your user agent string and add in some more mobile browser support. Thanks a lot, Chris! :-P


Matt Youell says

What, no Sidekick 3 icon???



matt says

I’ll go ahead and rep Chrome, then. Sweet idea running your own url shortener!
