"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."

    In plugins/FireHose/templates/list;firehose;default (line 18):
      IF user.noicons || user.simpledesign || user.lowbandwidth || user.pda;

    And plugins/FireHose/templates/dispStory;misc;default (line 79):
      [% IF user.noicons || user.simpledesign || user.lowbandwidth || user.pda %]

    So what is "pda", where is it set (not on the homepage prefs near No Icons, Simple Design, and Low Bandwidth), and was that an attempt at a mobile setting?
