auto-switch (mobile) theme based on User-Agent

I dislike the idea of auto-switching to mobile themes in general. I want the user to have the choice considering the fact that smartphones have now more power, bigger screens are wi-fi capable (no 3G costs).

Sometimes though, it is a good practice. Especially in the case of arstechnica.com, which has a design-perfect mobile website. If you are developing websites using Drupal, there are some good modules: Mobile Tools and Browscap.

For simpler constructions like photodiary.gr you can code simple and clean.

Photography Club of Larissa - the blogs and the website

I am a member at the Photography Club of Larissa for a few months now. The atmosphere is nice and I finally found people to talk about photography like geeks.

My presence there brought some changes, of course... :)

  • A new site is being in development http://www.fll.gr (fll from the greek initials [f]Φωτογραφική [l]Λέσχη [l]Λάρισας)
  • Andreas Katsakos made the first step and created a photoblog. Other members followed him (we are talking about guys who shot exclusively film and only recently switched to digital. Technology was not an issue till the last couple of years)
