The 'F***ing Manual' (as you so politely referred to it with your "RTFM")
for Rockbox is 68 pages long. I can understand why someone might not have
time to read it from beginning to end prior to asking a question on this
list.

I have been on many mailing lists over the years and this one may be the
most consistently hostile one. Did you ever consider welcoming a new member
rather than telling him to "RTFM" in response to his first posting? You
could also have just as easily written something like:

"Use the F1 button to open the main menu and then select 'Recording.' For
more information on recording, see the Rockbox manual at
http://rockbox.haxx.se/manual/manual.pdf. Hope this helps."

Could we try to be a little more pleasant -- especially with those new to
Rockbox?

Regards,
  Fred Maxwell
