Just thought I would let people know that I have borrowed the source from http://pixelcity.com/s/ (as it was broke 20090818) so that I can continue to look at a fast loading Slashdot for my iPhone. For more information visit http://www.pixelcity.com/slashdot/ - Thanks for the sweet (but very hacky) code :).
I made a couple of very small changes:
- Put cooperlees.com in the title.
- Changed the useragent sent via curl to be the Safari useragent string (so it gets the Slashdot returned that a normal Safari browser would get).
- Also wgetting all the images - They are copyright to their original creator.

Just thought I would pass on that my Ubuntu Iphone teathersing Shell Script has passed 1000 downloads.

Hope everyone that has downloaded it has enjoyed it as much as I have in the car on the way to work.
