I'm normally not in the "me too" business, but that'been exactly, what I
always wanted to say about IOS.
Well, the shortcomings of the "experts" are simply that they aren't
used, but I guess they _could_ be usefull.
But you are living right about conference - it doesn't even scale to
busy days among the few people using it. Anything without threading is
useless on larger discussion volumes. It should be easy to add
threading, though. But still, it wouldn't be as accesible as a mailing list.
On Cyphres styles, there's a remark to not spread them outside the
developers server - that's why I'm not really using them. Of course this
only hampers their evolution, imo.
And missing offline usability is something I once told Carl about, got
no answer, though. But I guess they are targetting those with "always
on" connections, too sad.
I hope scalability of IOS will improve over time, don't forget its at
1.0 for now.
That's it, I guess.
