Mr. B's Domain Version 10

The web has changed a great deal in the last five years. I intended to build a mobile version in 2010 when I last redesigned Mr. B's Domain, but it turned out to be more trouble than I was in the mood to bother with. Today, browsing on cell phones and tablets is wildly popular. In many countries, it already surpasses desktop browsing. That shift motivated me to rebuild the website to accommodate more platforms, and it's a lot easier now than it would have been five years ago. I started with the Bootstrap framework, which employs CSS and "Responsive Design" to automatically reshape each webpage to fit any size screen. It won't be another five years before the next update. After Jazz Fest, I intend to continue tweaking the layout and streamline the somewhat bloated code.

AVS Forum

Having recently renewed my interest in home audio and video equipment, I'm again regularly visiting AVS Forum. Now in its 21st year, the Audiovisual Science Forum is the single-best resource for knowledge on home theaters, televisions, speakers, etc. Many of their members have built their own home theaters.
