I need someone to test some stuff for me. It works on the version of Lynx that I have on the server, but I'd like to see if anyone out there actually finds something useful before I build the rest of this interface.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

I have Lynx but I don't use it
If you're making a text-only version of the site, I'd personally use it myself, as I'm stuck on a 28.8 at home and have NO bandwidth to spare as a result. Every little bit helps..

Alright, well, I guess it's worth doing if Sweetser wants to use it.

I've got a part of a text version done - just the thread part - I still need to do the reply, new post, and forum pages - but it's looking alright in lynx.

I'll let you guys know when / if I finish it so you can check it out for me.

This SHOULD be the printer friendly version of the site (I hope). I'm still trying to figure out the easiest way to strip HTML and pictures out of the body of posts - I may do some post-processing on the text fields to strip HTML tags out but that's a ways away.

Right now it works in Lynx but looks bad in a regular browser because of the tags that aren't working right.
