00:00:56scott666shake harder?
00:01:21scott666gently push it with a non-conductive screwdriver?
00:01:39[IDC]DragonI'd need to pull it.

00:02:07Zagorthere is some sort of lock on the battery hatch. once the hatch is open, the battery slides out without effort
00:02:31Zagoror do you mean you have the hatch open already?
00:02:53[IDC]Dragontried to slide it with a screwdriver from the side, applied quite some force to it, but it didn't move.
00:03:25[IDC]Dragonwhith "hatch" you mean the topside cover?
00:03:47[IDC]Dragonmaybe 7 by 1 cm?
00:04:03[IDC]Dragonyes, that's open.

02:30:32kenoI really like the idea of flashing the rockbox, but I just wanna make sure I do it in a stage in which it's stable enough.. (heard of ATA errors and other bugs?)
02:33:50BoD[]can't help
02:34:56 Quit Galik (Remote closed the connection)
02:52:22PlughI'm patient enough to bear the load time. I run up-to-the-minute code, so I don't like risking not having a fallback plan. And I really don't want to build a serial cable
02:53:31BoD[]i didn't try to flash it neither
02:53:35BoD[]but i will ... one day :)
02:54:24kenogood arguments that are correct for me as well, but there will be a point in the future where flashing will be reliable enough.. only a question of when
02:54:49PlughI wouldn't mind flashing the version I have now
02:55:02Plughbut there's no real point to it

08:17:46midknight2k3i recall you said you wantd to get the multiresume bookmark patch in rockbox right bagder?
08:17:55Bagderyes I do
08:18:07midknight2k3i hope you could put an option to have it on or off
08:18:22midknight2k3because i tried it today and it was very cool but sometimes it's an unneeded hassle
08:18:29midknight2k3sometimes i don't want to resume
08:18:41hardeepmidknight2k3: there is an option to disable it... see the bookmark settings in the menu
08:18:44midknight2k3OR maybe it could automatically make a bookmark when stopping
08:18:50midknight2k3oh ok thanks
08:18:54midknight2k3i'll stop now
08:20:43earHurtsbagder, was it you or zagor who mentioned tortoisecvs?
08:20:49hardeepBagder: btw, ben's last release is compatible with the dynamic playlist code (we disable bookmarks if the playlist has been modified)
08:20:51Bagderzagor did
08:21:17Bagderhardeep: cool
08:21:41earHurtsit works rather nicely
08:21:42Bagderany other known issue left with it?
08:21:52hardeepBagder: none that I know of
08:22:46Bagderthen I guess we should aim for commit
08:25:43midknight2k3hey hey
08:25:48midknight2k3you forget important part
08:25:54midknight2k3REDZONE on PEAKMETER
08:27:20earHurtslet's get the touch screen working first
08:27:35midknight2k3earhurts can you code it?
08:27:35Bagderyeah, and the FM for non-FM units ;-)
08:27:38midknight2k3ITS WHAT I WANT
08:28:16earHurtsI told you before that I'd help you to code it
08:28:26midknight2k3help me?
08:28:32earHurtsbut I don't have a big need for it
08:28:50midknight2k3many people could use it for recording
08:28:57midknight2k3just to know the optimum level
08:29:02earHurtsI need to figure out how to handle usb notification for a thread
08:29:33earHurtshow do you figure out what's optimum?
08:29:46midknight2k3by using the red zone
08:30:37earHurtsI sense a circular definition
08:31:46earHurtshow does the programmer figure out where the zona rosa starts?
08:32:18midknight2k310 pixels before the right edge of the screen?
08:32:46earHurtsand that helps with recording how?
08:33:01midknight2k3never mind
08:33:23earHurtslook, you want to write it, I'll help you
08:33:36 Join keno [0] (
08:33:39midknight2k3i can't
08:34:42earHurtsdidn't you write a speedier scroll?
08:34:53midknight2k3not really "write"
08:35:01midknight2k3but if that was writing i wrote a bunch of crap
08:35:49earHurtsso do that for the red zone
08:36:07midknight2k3but i modified the scroll
08:36:15midknight2k3i can't modify the redzone bacsue it doesn't exist
08:36:50earHurtsthe peak meter exists
08:37:14earHurtsyou just need to invert the video for the last 10 pixels
08:37:37midknight2k3and that's simple for someone who knows about 2% of all C code
08:37:45earHurtswherever a pixel is written, don't write a pixel, and vice versa
08:38:27earHurtsI'd use 2 for loops instead of the single current for loop
08:38:45midknight2k3i'd do it if i had a walkthrough or something but me trying to tell the peak meter to invert the last 10 pixels is like youtrying to code a... hypercube
08:39:55earHurtsa hypercube is just a four dimensional cube
08:40:07midknight2k3but a hypercube that really works
08:40:12midknight2k3seen in Cube 2
08:40:17earHurtsso where a cube has squares for sides, a hypercube has squares for sides
08:40:22midknight2k3anyhow it was just an exaple
08:41:05earHurtstake a look at the code, email me your questions
08:41:24midknight2k3look at the rockbox code and email you any questions i come up with?
08:42:29midknight2k3how about: what do i do?
08:42:51midknight2k3i don't understand the code; asking you to help me would be like saying get a copy of the C book and type it up for me
08:43:00earHurtslook at the peakmeter functions in wps_display.c
08:43:12midknight2k3all right
08:48:49midknight2k3i see
08:49:03midknight2k3i am still basically at a loss
08:49:11midknight2k3which is a polite way of saying, help
08:51:06hardeepthe majority of the peakmeter code is in apps/recorder/peakmeter.c
08:51:18midknight2k3i know
08:51:24midknight2k3but earhurts said wps-display
08:51:32midknight2k3which would it be?
08:51:38midknight2k3must be peakmeter.c
08:51:44midknight2k3beacuse the recording calls for it too
08:51:47midknight2k3not just wps
08:51:53earHurtsi was wrong
08:52:39midknight2k3i sill dunno
08:53:17earHurtslook, you care about where it writes to the screen
08:53:31earHurtsso look for calls to lcd_ functions
08:53:41midknight2k3and that differs how from .... "peeks_per_draw"? lol

16:56:49diddystar5could you make the daily tarballs in the bzip2 format please!!!!!
16:57:18diddystar5im on a 56k and it takes less time to download :)
16:57:36Bagderit'll just save a few percent
16:58:01diddystar5humm yes but i does take a 1min half for me to download
16:58:31diddystar5the laster tarball is 490 kb instead of 600
16:58:40diddystar5*in bzip2
16:59:49Bagderyeah, but can the windows users deal with bzip2 as easily?
17:00:36diddystar5yep i use 7-zip it is a one click to decompress bzip2 then another to decompress the tar
17:01:07diddystar5and cygwin has the bzip2 decompresser also
17:10:11***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:10:45Plughgnu tar has bzip2 support as a command line flag
17:12:10diddystar5cool thanks Plugh
17:13:32Plugh110k should take somewhere on the order of 20 seconds
17:13:38Plughprobably a little less
17:14:17Plughthat's the diff between 490 and 600
17:14:54Plughbut bzip2 isn't very CPU friendly. Not only does it take longer to compress, but ties up more CPU
17:15:35Plughnot saying it's the wrong thing to do, but it does have its own set of issues
17:16:30diddystar5takes about 1.5 secs to decompress on a 1ghz p3
17:16:50Plughwhat about compress?
17:17:22diddystar5about 3 sec to tar
17:17:57diddystar5and about another 3 to bzip2
17:18:26Plughcompared to gzip?
17:19:56diddystar5took 7 secs to compress to gzip
17:21:23diddystar5humm cygwin gzip difd it in 2 secs...
17:21:27diddystar5*did it
17:23:46Plughcygwin's always slower for me :)
17:24:02diddystar5but! 7-zip compresses to 580 kb cygwin did it at 614 kb
17:26:05Plughbzip2 -9
17:27:53diddystar5still didn't beat 7-zip made is a 603 kb file
17:28:21Plughbzip2 uncompresses the 7-zip file?

18:01:47b1_how do I reply to threads in the rockbox newsgroup?
18:02:34MTsubscribe to the mailing lsit and then reply to the messages you receive
18:03:36b1_done both. i started a thread a some have answered - then I go to reply but it's hasn't registered yet? dunno
18:04:03MTon the web version?
18:04:09MTit doesnt update immediately
18:04:35hardeepb1_: the e-mail address you reply with has to be the same as the one you subscribed with
18:05:09b1_it was - do I reply to the person who answered or to the rockbox web address?
18:05:32hardeepb1_: to the rockbox address if you want it to go to the mailing list
18:06:23b1_but if I reply to that address how does it know to slot the answer under the topic I started?
18:07:30b1_Also, Hardeep: are you doing something special to put my name in front of your replies (b1_:) or just typing it manually - new to irc?
18:10:42hardeepb1_: i'm not all that familiar with it but it's probably put under the correct thread based on mail header information
18:11:31hardeepb1_: i enter the name manually for the most part, some irc clients provide convenience functions for doing it
18:12:08 Quit krak ()
18:14:14b1_perhaps I should try replying to their address? Maybe there's some delay or something - just doesn't seem to be registering?
18:17:10hardeepb1_: registering where?
18:18:34b1_ah - there we go; it registered.

21:17:07PlughI use mine in my car
21:17:09midknight2k3loaded it?
21:17:16Newbieyes it did
21:17:28midknight2k3i do not understand
21:17:36midknight2k3you mean played it in your car?
21:17:54Newbieno , i just loaded the batteries.
21:18:10midknight2k3oh you charged it?
21:18:10 Quit AciD (Connection timed out)
21:18:24Newbieoh yes sorry...i'm not native english
21:18:39midknight2k3with a car adapter then?
21:18:45midknight2k3that's fine i do it alot
21:18:46Newbieyes with a car adapter
21:18:55midknight2k3set it to 6v if you can
21:19:05midknight2k3just because mine on 4.5V was too little power
21:19:05Newbieoh good i'll do that
21:19:14midknight2k3or higher if possible
21:19:25midknight2k36v is good
21:19:40Newbiewell...the adapter that argos sells is 12 V - 1.2 A
21:20:03midknight2k3so the car adapter should be at least 6V
21:20:14midknight2k3at 6V it's close to the archos charger's output
21:20:23midknight2k3but if you can get it to be 10v or soemthing that's great
21:21:01Newbieoh in my car its 12V
21:21:05Plughthere's a regulator that takes it down to the correct internal voltage
21:21:17midknight2k312v in car?
21:21:22Plughbut if the unit is getting too warm, cut it back
21:21:27Plughcar is 13.8v
21:21:31midknight2k3it's a very good thing to do charge in your car
21:21:51midknight2k3but yeah take caution
21:21:54midknight2k3it should be ok
21:22:05midknight2k3no problem

22:52:06Plugh defenestration n. [mythically from a traditional Czech assasination
22:52:06Plugh method, via SF fandom] 1. Proper karmic retribution for an incorrigible
22:52:06DBUGEnqueued KICK Plugh
22:52:06Plugh punster. "Oh, ghod, that was _awful_!" "Quick! Defenestrate him!" 2. The
22:52:06Plugh act of exiting a window system in order to get better response time from
22:52:08Plugh a full-screen program. This comes from the dictionary meaning of
22:52:11Plugh `defenestrate', which is to throw something out a window. 3. The act of
22:52:13Plugh discarding something under the assumption that it will improve matters.
22:52:16Plugh "I don't have any disk space left." "Well, why don't you defenestrate
22:52:18midknight2k32i know
22:52:18Plugh that 100 megs worth of old core dumps?" 4. Under a GUI, the act of
22:52:21Plugh dragging something out of a window (onto the screen). "Next,
22:52:23Plugh defenestrate the MugWump icon." 5. The act of completely removing
