Paul Durrant

by Adam C. Engst

Paul Durrant <pdurrant@cix.compulink.co.uk> and Steve Dobbs <sdobbs@picayune.coginst.uwf.edu> note that the slightly smaller screen in the MessagePad 110 is not a problem, as mentioned in TidBITS #218, but in fact an excellent reminder to developers to check for screen size at runtime rather than assuming a certain size. As Paul says, "Taking advantage of the capability to write flexible software is good for the user, whose software doesn't break, and for the developer, who doesn't have to rush out tweaked versions."
