Mr. B's Domain Version 10

The web has changed a great deal in the last five years. I intended to build a mobile version in 2010 when I last redesigned Mr. B's Domain, but it turned out to be more trouble than I was in the mood to bother with. Today, browsing on cell phones and tablets is wildly popular. In many countries, it already surpasses desktop browsing. That shift motivated me to rebuild the website to accommodate more platforms, and it's a lot easier now than it would have been five years ago. I started with the Bootstrap framework, which employs CSS and "Responsive Design" to automatically reshape each webpage to fit any size screen. It won't be another five years before the next update. After Jazz Fest, I intend to continue tweaking the layout and streamline the somewhat bloated code.

In an effort to read more books recreationally, I decided to add a new toy to my collection and bought a Kindle Voyage eBook reader. It's a great device and it has made reading more enjoyable, and portable. LIke every other gadget I get my hands on, I want to know everything about it. I've been lurking on the MobileRead Forums, easily the top message board for all things eBook.
