Somewhere in its code the forum is inserting a double slash in the URL.

Try a forum search (for "hello" - whatever really) and click on one of the search results. You'll get something like:
http://forum.arduino.cc//index.php?topic=197001.0

Now, Chrome (and I suspect many other desktop browsers) forgives the // error and displays the page anyway. But some systems are not so forgiving.

For example, see my screenshot of an emailed new topic notification as it appears on my Android mobile. It links only to the root, stopping at the incorrect //.

Can the erroneous duplication be found and weeded out?   smiley

Seems you're right.
I can see that double slash too in my browser address bar, now you've put attention to it.

Have a look at "blink without delay".

Huh.  Interesting.  It looks like the double slash is actually legal (a segment consisting of zero pchars) so bad on Android.

In any case, the double slash is not useful so I'll let the sysop know tomorrow.

Fixed.
Let me know if some URL has been broken by the change (it is possible that some forum.arduino.cc/foobar has become forum.arduino.ccfoobar, which is invalid address).
