Conversations I've noticed all the articles being posted by new editors, and I'm really liking some choices. Since there has been no formal announcement or introduction, I suppose I'll start: any new editors care to introduce themselves?

Conversations I use Google a lot to search this site. As of pretty recently, I have been noticing that relevant results have been very frequently coming from any of the following domains:

osnews.com
www4.osnews.com
mobile.osnews.com (this, specifically, should probably have a robots.txt file so it doesn't get spidered)
nmcx.com
74.86.31.159
newmobilecomputing.com
sundanced.com

You'll notice that visiting any one of these delivers the OSNews website, without redirecting. That is, http://nmcx.com/conversations does not redirect to http://www.osnews.com/conversations. It just displays the conversations page. Besides screwing with your google rankings, it confuses the hell out of me. A very simple .htaccess should be able to redirect everything to osnews.com/*

Conversations You really can't understand the impact of this SDK without watching the presentation. This is going to sweep enterprise, no question.

Conversations Since the move to the new server, I've been almost always seeing this:

Seeing this comment made me decide to say something:
http://osnews.com/permalink.php?news_id=19024&comment_id=289629

What's up?

Conversations So, conversation comments don't work! Hah, who knew. Anyway, the bug: when starring a story that's toward the bottom of the page, I'm thrown back to the top. This is because the blank (I assume) href property defaults to #, which is always the top of the page. Can't think of any way to fix this off the top of my head. Javascript, I suppose.

Conversations I just came across some unexpected behavior with the starring and figured it would be the perfect time to start a conversation. Post any bugs, etc, here! Hopefully the conversation tables aren't going to get purged very often.
