Site not useable in BB Browser, opera mini, etc.

I don't know what the heck was done within the last month, but the Shoutcast site is now useless on my Blackberry. The 'tune in' image and link isn't shown at all. The search box unnecessarily uses javascript, and after enabling javascript I get a javascript error instead of a search. Links such as 'advanced search' aren't being followed. I see using Firefox, the top menus are unclever dropdowns. The 'classic' link shows the exact same page, so I'm thinking you've disabled the beta and the original page is broken, or permanently switched. mobile.shoutcast.com is also a link to the exact same start page. Same thing for Opera mini - useless site. Even Firefox with noscript renders a non-functional page.

Maybe you should make a web page that at least is useable without flash and javascript. I just need to search and get a download link to the streams. That can be done with pure XHTML 1.0 Transitional the site claims to be written in (but shows 140+ errors upon validation). Make a site that will work in lynx, then add CSS to make it look pretty for other browsers. Whoever is updating the site should start with learning the basics before trying to improve it...
