Subject: Re: O/T Why not iPod?

Re: O/T Why not iPod?

That's right Brian,

With the awesome scripts from TNT consulting my IPOD Shuffle 1GB is an
awesome member of my otherwise rockbox supported MP3 player family. The
only issue I have with your scripts is the cost. Those mighty British quids
transfer into a hefty $100 in my puny but resilient Canadian dollar. So
right now I can only run the ten minute demo. If you blind guys out there
try these scripts please, please read the documentation very carefully
before running them down. If you follow the install docs you will find that
they work beautifully.

Cheers & keep on rocking with rockbox...rocker
