Subject: Re: buffer
From: Eric Linenberg (elinenbe_at_umich.edu)
I run with mine all the time. I either put it in the pouch on my belt
on my back, or I just hold it in my hand. Either way it has been
fine. When I walk I just put the recorder in my side pocket. It gets
bounced around a lot, but I have never had it skip.
With the archos firmware I couldn't do much with the recorder (not
even walk fast), but with the rockbox firmware I really can do
anything -- its buffer protection is MUCH better.
