    Ok, here is a weird one, I've noticed for a long time on the mobile site that sometimes threads in the 'Recent Posts' page will have a new thread that shows there are 1 or 2 replies no views. How can that be?

    I don't know why it is either, I see it in the regular forum also. My guess is the post count updates quicker than the view count, I usually notice after I go and post in a thread and see that even though I viewed and posted in it it still says 0 views, but it adds my post.

    The odd quirks of the mobile software are some of the biggest mysteries facing scientists today.

    It's too bad the Feds have been cutting the funds for scientific research- we may never know how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop.

    It's because some people with cell phones are psychic. They don't have to read the question to answer it. They got a "spidey sense" after having microwaves beamed into their skulls. Yup, that's my theory, and I'm sticking with it.

    I'm not really one to check my sites when I'm on the go, but on the rare occasion that I decide to come on the forums when I'm out and about, I find the mobile site is alright but there's one thing that bugs me: The mobile pages in a thread aren't as long as the regular pages.

    Pretty sure there is a config option in the mobile site to increase the thread size. I am almost postive I change mine.
