#2 Overall looks good and works well on my iPad.
But, there are some articles with a queer symbol between paragraphs and in random spaces between words: a diamond the colour of the page with a white question mark within.
Page order is fine -- colour is a good visual cue for which page I'm on, should I forget in those few moments while I'm scrolling down.
There are arguments for both category and posting order.
No issue about removing the page hits column, and I do like having the categories there instead.
I'm not keen on the shadowing of the article and comment boxes. It is pretty, but it feels uncomfortable when looked at long enough... possibly a sign I need to actually fill my new glasses prescription. On the other hand, as a visual marker that I'm looking at a work in progress, it's effective. ;-)

#3 Fred, I'm not sure what-all you said, but thank you.
You are a GOD.

#4 I think you should have a button/ link at the bottom of the page to view the whole site + comments, so the main page is much shorter.
Also is it useful to know who last commented?
Might be more useful to have flags against articles so you can tell where the news item was from.

#6 I've got the databases updated now. The Postgres version shows more records than the MySQL. I believe that's because the shadow hasn't been deleting duplicate records.
I'm going to let them continue running in parallel just to make sure nothing breaks before shutting MySQL down entirely.
