    Better Mobile Support

    Hi Alchemist, I was wondering if you can add better mobile support for this forum. Many times, I want to check the forum on the phone and the default site opens up which is difficult to use on the phone because of the constant scrolling (both up-down and side-ways) and relatively higher...

    D B Realty IPO

    I did not find any thread on this IPO. DB Realty is one of the major real estate developers in Mumbai. And this morning, Udayan compared it to HDIL. Any reason why people are not interested in this one? Any analysis or suggestions? The retail subscription until yesterday was only 0.02 times...

    RSS Feed?

    Hi Alchemist, Is it possible to provide an RSS feed for the new posts, in real time, if possible? Usually I check the web-site from work and when the work is too much, it sometimes slips my mind.
