Subject: Re: a couple of questions about ver. 2.1
From: Dennis Lui (dennis_at_thesilvercat.com)
Date: 2003-11-29


"Let me ask you a question:
Why is it so important that the device displays "CHARGING" instead of the
current directory? The battery is still charging, even if Rockbox is running."

it's not too important. i suppose it's just a habit if mine to shut down
and then unplug it and then have the device auto-poweroff.

"It will probably not be implemented at all, since you can do the same with
a playlist."

that is true as well. i just have my songs organized in folders by artist
and album, so i guess my idea would be more convenient for myself. also,
im not too good with programming, and i wouldn't know how to utilize a playlist
browser. no big deal though. i tend to just listen to everything on random
anyway.

anywho, keep up the good work
