Urssus: August 2nd - going small

Most­ly, I spent my two hours to­day refac­tor­ing. But al­so, test­ing how uRSSus looks on a small screen. Take a look:

urssus16

This is urssus in the con­fig­u­ra­tion I liked best on my 7", 800x480 eeeP­C's screen.

As you can see, a more com­pact tem­plate for the com­bined view is a must, and I will im­ple­ment a com­pact tem­plate. Or maybe just make a con­fig­u­ra­tion op­tion where you choose what tem­plate the com­bined view us­es, to avoid the mul­ti­pli­ca­tion of "mod­es" that are the ex­act same thing un­der the hood.

Us­ing com­bined view with all bars hid­den and fullscreen makes for a rather large read­ing area, which is nice.

The per­for­mance in that lim­it­ed com­put­er was good... un­til the mem­o­ry us­age bal­loon­s. While uRSSus is not too CPU hun­gry, it's pret­ty mem­o­ry in­ten­sive. There are ob­vi­ous ways to im­prove that, of course, and I am ex­plor­ing them.

BTW, I have not mea­sured this in a while: 1957 lines of code. And still quite fun!
