Back in those days of yore in late 90' of previous millennium, when "Glosses of Finnegans Wake" thrived on free hosting servers like Geocities and Tripod (vestiges of those old sites could be found here: http://sinkest.tripod.com/), frames were the next best thing - everyone used them and, as a matter of fact, for annotations in footnotes of finwake.com frames are even now unsurpassed. Be that as it may, with possing of showers good old frames became deprecated and even obsolete. Such an atavism that modern browsers on mobile devices are expressing open hostility towards commands like 'frameset', 'frame spacing', etc. An html5 coding language is feigning ignorance of those commands, Safari browser recoils in horror, Android tries its best but visual results are poor. Eventually, as we passed the tipping point, so came the time for a major reengineering of finwake.com. Grand scheme remained the same (i.e. hyperlink that opens an annotation) and everything that was on site (and that is the content from September of 2010) in frames and via tooltips, remained as it was - that content still works fine on many desktop monitors and on majority of browsers. On the other hand, for mobile devices Finnegans Wake is shrouded in divs and iframes, boosted with "mobile first approach", and vested in Responsive Web Design. "Dirty" html code is cleansed, files are smaller and result is slick (sic!) and span performance on iOS, Android, iPhone, iPad, Tablets, and hopefully mobile watches (kh!). All that was made available through ''Kidam Flying Colors Technology'' (kh! kh! and if it does not exist it would be necessary quoniam to invent it).
