    I have to agree about that Synchronet website. It looks like it was designed with a text editor in 1993. Synchronet is a good BBS program and it really deserves a better looking web site.

    Are you confusing SyncTERM with Synchronet? Different web sites.

    Every website done today should be mobile friendly. Small text is unacceptable for us old
    folks.

    I think it's interesting that smartphones tend to have such high resolution screens.. The screen resolutions they tend to have can rival some desktop PC monitors. Text has to be fairly large (pixel-wise) to be legible on such screens.

    You're not going to be running Synchronet on your Android any time
    soon, I figure, so I don't see why it would need to be mobile friendly.
    It's basic and it's functional and most of the interesting stuff is in
    the wiki anyway.

    I'm sure with that said, Digital Man would be more than happy if those complainers would like to redesign it so he can get on with adding new
    stuff and fixing Synchronet bugs instead of putzing around with a
    website :)
