    mobile websites

    I had an amazingly cunning idea

    what if country created

    m.existingschooldomain

    for every school and pointed the domain at www.existingschooldomain/mobile

    what's the point of this?

    A folder connected to a shorter address for the exact purpose of having mobile versions of school websites. A mobile website being typically minimal on graphics and filler,

    e.g. bbc news mobile: BBC News | BBC News

    not a site that uses m. but gmail & facebook do.

    It would be super handy, if for instance, I could get the holiday dates from my phone, but I can't afford the data costs of loading the full normal school site. we could do this ourselves naturally without any clever domains but then lancsngfl isn't getting any kudos from promoting alternative means of distributing information. and since this is the age of mobile data.....

    Really?
    I don't think this comes under "cunning plans"

    now we have our mobile domain but we're still working on the exact details and design of the site.
