A Moveable Feast

feed meA couple of months ago, at the insistence of several frequent visitors to the Far Left Side, I added an RSS feed to this web site and, lo and behold, currently over 25% of you depend on the feed for your thrice-weekly progressive jollies. That number grows higher every single day.

That freaking amazes me, but I feel a bit foolish.

You see, I had looked at RSS as a broadcast technology for a long time but I just didn't have the energy or patience to struggle through the many online tutorials to make it happen. Eventually it was becoming clear that the FLS was virtually alone in a constellation of online comics, all radiating their comic goodness thorough the magic of Really Simple Syndication. So a lot of Mountain Dews, a little elbow grease and a few suspiciously head-shaped holes in my plaster later, here we are.

What I'm really trying to says is... if there are any other technologies that appear to be roaring to the crest of the next online wave, please let me know. The more people I can annoy with this dang cartoony thing, the better.

----------------

While on the subject of numbers, two-thirds of visitors to the Far Left Side last month used Firefox. 63%, to be exact. Meanwhile only 16% use IE.

A year ago the numbers were 75% Firefox and 12% IE, which means 8% went elsewhere. And I believe that "elsewhere" is the iPhone.

Looks like its time to get the FLS iPhone-ready.

Here we go again.

UPDATE: I visited the Far Left Side on a friend's iPhone last night and I was amazed to find the FLS fits that beautiful little screen perfectly. No scrolling, no nothing. Lucky me.
