Interesting stuff this is I have had 17 Emails on my mobile phone I wouldn't know if you call it a Smartfone! But I use opera mini to get onto h2g2 + BBC message boards so h2g2c2 will I neeed a PC to get on the new site? As you may notice it says from No Name this addy I use for others as all I seem to get is spam! So when I sign upto anything I use this rather than my other a/c. Hey Trigg of Ireland aka Timothy Green how are you doing? You many know me by this i.e Whos going to visit my personal space? I got Lil ACE, yourself! I saw a picture of you in your kitchen wearing orange joggers, do I ring any bells now? If so inbox me <rainbow>

programmatically I find json soooo much easier, rather than having to parse a file you&#39;re referring to object elements. makes xml redundant as far as I&#39;m concerned.

The new h2g2 will initially certainly be using the same code as the old one. You'll be able to continue accessing it with Opera Mini. I use Opera Mobile in full mode, and find Goo is such a good mobile skin, even if it was the original and now quite old.

When we come to rebuild, mobile will be a *big* focus.
