"Avantslash is touting a user hosted perl script that, if paired with any web browser with JavaScript, promises to shave crucial bytes off of the standard Slash-based experience, one of which is our very own SoylentNews. Audiences include those with very limited bandwidth, such as those in developing countries with only 2G mobile access or dialup."

    I actually like your comment layouts better than the SoylentNews version. It lets you see more postings by default instead of having to click the links to view each of them. Pick this format up SoylentNews!!!!!

      Cool! But just to be clear, the software isn't "mine." I just bought a domain and set up an instance of Avantslash [avantslash.org] that you're free to use.

        Nice to have if the need arises, thanks!

      It already exists. Just register an account and change your display mode setting [soylentnews.org] to "Nested". But yeah, I think nested would be a better default.

        I always use nested too (and browse at -1 for what it's worth).

    Hm, haven't I seen this before? A site that leaves a huge blank space at the side of the screen? Either shows full comments or hides them completely, but doesn't show comment headlines?

    Fsck Soylent Beta!

    Many, many thanks! I hope you leave the site up - it's very useful. I happen to like the layout better than I do the original, and I'm hugely grateful for the savings in bandwidth. This is going to be the first page I visit, and I'll go to Soy directly if I need to comment.
