Test EoZ mobile site

I just found an alpha test of a service called Flurp that is meant to automatically make blogs mobile-friendly.

At the moment, if you browse to my blog on a smartphone or PDA, it should redirect to a different, much faster mobile version of the page. The latest post shows up but you can get a menu of posts by touching the header.

The bad news is that there are no comments, no sidebars, nothing but the posts.

Let me know if this helps any.

Another alternative is to use Google Reader to read the blog. Just surf to this URL and (assuming you have a Google account) you will see another mobile-friendly version of the site, with the same limitations.

If people hate the redirect, I'll get rid of it.

UPDATE: I just realized that the mobile users testing out the site cannot comment on it! This is a problem.
