Making things mobile friendly II

November 30th, 2016
tech  [html]

When I got a phone and started caring about how things looked on mobile I only fixed some of the pages on my site: home page, blog post template, etc. I have various pages scattered around, however, that I never got around to fixing. Most of why I had been putting this off is that it seemed like a lot of finicky work, like updating the EA forum display was. Except all of these pages are just simple html with no css:

<td> 18462
<tr> 3244
<li> 414
<p> 87
<br> 70
<ul> 61
<i> 51
<head> 31
<html> 31
<th> 31
<hr> 30
<title> 29
<small> 27
<body> 24
<blockquote> 13
<b> 8
<ol> 8
<table> 7
<sup> 6
<strike> 5
<code> 3
<style> 3
<big> 2
<center> 2
<tt> 2
<em> 1
<pre> 1
<script> 1

(Why so many table cells? This list includes my schedule and history which consist of huge tables. Only 5% of the table cells come from the rest of the pages.)

These pages are basically already responsive, and all they needed was:

<meta name="viewport"
      content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
to tell mobile browsers not to try to display them like a desktop site.

Strong stances

I. The question of confidence Should one hold strong opinions? Some say yes. Some say that while it’s hard to tell, it tentatively seems pretty bad (probably). There are many pragmatically great upsides, and a couple of arguably unconscionable downsides. …

What do executives do, anyway?

An executive with 8,000 indirect reports and 2000 hours of work in a year can afford to spend, at most, 15 minutes per year per person in their reporting hierarchy... even if they work on nothing else. That job seems impossible. How can anyone make any im…
