I don't see an RSS feed for comments any more. The RSS feed allows you to see when new messages have been posted to a thread. It really sucks to lose that feature, please bring it back.

@56, it kind of is an Apple thing or at least they started it. They were the ones who started the viewport meta tag as an iPhone-oriented directive for Safari. Chrome for iPad seems to pay attention to it, too, so it's spread beyond Safari.

While viewport is useful, there's no good reason to set user-scalable to no that I can think of, other than hating visitors to your web site. It's frickin' evil, it is.

I'm with everybody else on the zoom thing. Can you please set your viewport settings so the site can be zoomed?

All you have to do is hange the viewport meta tag's user-scalable property from no to yes:

Current, icky anti-user setting:

meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, user-scalable=no"

Better, user-friendly setting:

meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, user-scalable=yes"

Coming Soon: Hatchette Books free on Amazon!

That way, they deny money to Hatchette without having to pay authors.

Still, if she didn't know what she was doing, shouldn't she have asked the people at the dispensary for guidance *before* she started eating it? Seems like asking the people who know might just give her a chance to eat an appropriate amount.

Asking afterward? Not as useful.

Next up for bigot legislation: Missouri. Yep, a Republican state senator actually filed legislation today, based upon the Kansas and Arizona bills.
