RE:Cell Phones and Fishing

Forget WAP programming.

Start off with a simplified Web page that would allow existing WAP servers to display meaningful chunks of content from the site to cell phone and Palm users. The frames layout is counter productive to that. I'm not saying dump frames. Simply create a short page that has links to all the key components:

<!--http--><a href="http://flyfishingforum.com/flytalk/index.htm" target="_blank">Fly talk</a><!--url-->

<!--http--><a href="http://flyfishingforum.com/expertise/index.htm" target="_blank">Expertise</a><!--url-->

<!--http--><a href="http://flyfishingforum.com/chronicles/index.htm" target="_blank">Chronicles</a><!--url-->

<!--http--><a href="http://tbone.biol.sc.edu/tide/sitesel.html" target="_blank">World tides</a><!--url-->

etc.

and stick this at http://flyfishingforum.com/mobile/

Tide data is so important (Jim actually has a watch that gives him this info). I can't tell you how many times I've found myself indecisive over what to do or where to try next because I'm not sure what tide is going to do in a certain spot. It would be incredible to have this available on my cell phone!
