Subject: Re: Resume on STOP behaviour
From: Neon John (johngd_at_bellsouth.net)
Date: 2003-11-14


Amen! Please leave resume alone!!! The code still has the problem of not
clearing extra keystrokes during boot. If I hold the ON button on my Recorder
a fraction of a second too long, an additional stroke is stored which answeres
to the negative on the resume screen.

There is another behavior that I'm not sure is intentional or not but is
invaluable. Instead of having to turn the recorder off and on to initiate
another resume screen, I've found that I can briefly hit the OFF key and then
the ON key and bring up the resume screen again. That is soooo nice. If this
behavior is an accident then please call it a feature and leave it alone.

John
