Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox clips (was Re: Installing Talkbox)
From: Paul Arnst (
Date: 2004-04-01

i would like to see a tool which generates this dirnamestuff and puts it
into the .rockbox folder
the tool would just need the path of the ajb and should parse the
dir-structure except hidden folders of course
