so. i arranged my (computer) desktop just so, everything in its place, all that. nice if i’d done that to the actual desktop surrounding it, but i did straighten a bit. did some dishes, took out some trash (all of this at around 3:35, mainly so it wouldn’t look like i had been sitting around fiddling with the computer all day). so i decided to reward myself with something completely frivolous.
i made an MT template for wireless phone browsers.
the only thing is, it’s WML not HDML so my phone can’t read it. more research is called for on that, but for now, if you have a non-sprint phone, and it has a browser, you could point it at hooha.us/index.wmland see my last three entries. no comments, nothing fancy, it’s a bit much as it is, long, long pages.
you can go here and put in that URL, to see what it looks like on a variety of wireless phones, if you don’t have a wireless phone. or if you have a sprint phone. why must sprint be so difficult? *grumble* and what is it with browser developers anyway?
i could go get the big box of computer books and crap from the car and begin stocking the workplace with worky looking things. this would be a useful endeavor, as opposed to my actual plans, which include an HDML template, a little phone browser detection, and goodness knows what else. maybe something for PDAs?
fyi, this is it: all you have to do is make a new index template, name it, and the file has to be something.wml.

note: the separating charachters, are ◊ — the lozenge. a totally cool separator thingy, yes? it’s in the same group as ♥ ♠ ♣, and ♦
i’m editing this to add that and to make happy sounds about how wonderful MT is, how elegantly it lent itself to this purpose. everything up to the part where my phone uses a more frustrating WAP language was just delightful.
