#rockbox log for 2003-08-08

00:00:34BoD[]Santa Monica
00:00:45BoD[]and we also went to san fransisco and las vegas :)
00:01:35elinenbeah... I just got back from Las Vegas last week (bachelor party)
00:01:44elinenbeI love San Fransisco too.
00:01:55elinenbeI dont think much about Santa Monica.
00:02:19BoD[]venice beach
00:03:23elinenbethat is a fun area to visit.
00:03:33elinenbeI would not want to live there, it is too dirty
00:03:40elinenbeit is good for people watching though
00:04:36BoD[]héhé :) right
00:04:49BoD[]what's the weather like in NY ?
00:05:03elinenbeit is only about 80F but soo humid
00:05:07elinenbeand it has rained all week
00:05:15BoD[]rain !! but it's summer
00:13:02CtcpIgnored 5 channel CTCP requests in 1 hour and 27 minutes at the last flood
00:13:02*PsycoXul has sad news
00:13:14PsycoXulthey didn't have any more archos' at bestbuy
00:13:22PsycoXulso i ended up with a nomad jukebox zen :/
00:13:31BoD[]isn't it good ?
00:13:40PsycoXulit doesn't seem bad at all, but i'll still miss rockbox
00:13:50BoD[]is it 60g ?
00:13:52ZagorPsycoXul: were you in a hurry?
00:14:03PsycoXulno it's 20G
00:14:37BoD[]is the firmware good ? :) like .. to they have id3 database thingy like ipods
00:15:39PsycoXulZagor: not so much in a hurry, but somewhat impatient, not wanting to drive to another town's bestbuy, and honestly the FM rec's construction disappointed me anyway, and that's all they seem to have left at the stores around here (and the one closest to us don't have them at all anymore)
00:16:36PsycoXulBoD[]: it doesn't seem bad.. from what i read it's the same as the other nomad jukebox's... has a bunch of search and categorization features that i'll probably not put to much use :p
00:19:05PsycoXulhardware wise it seems to have potential... it plays mp3, wma, and wav, so maybe it's potentially ogg-capable
00:19:46PsycoXulplus it has some fairly fancing processing, including 4-band EQ and several presets for it, environmental effects, and time-scaling
00:20:02Zagorhave you opened it yet? ;)
00:20:04BoD[]i like this
00:20:07PsycoXulnice blue EL backlight heh
00:20:12PsycoXulZagor: opened the unit? no
00:20:21PsycoXulthats one big thing i'm wondering about though
00:20:36PsycoXuli have no idea about how feasible HD upgrades are on it
00:20:59Zagorwell, older creative jukeboxes used a custom file system...
00:21:40PsycoXuloh yeah.. i think this uses the same.. i guess that does pose a problem
00:22:23PsycoXulanother weird thing is that it apparently has recording capabilities, but you need an optional add-on that's like a remote, mic, and FM tuner all in one to do it
00:22:37PsycoXuland it plugs into some weird little slot-shaped jack next to the headphone jack
00:23:13PsycoXulthat kinda bugs me, but i'm thinking it could be hax0red
00:23:50BoD[]why would the custom file system be a problem
00:23:54Zagoryeah, but probably not without examining the add-on first...
00:24:31PsycoXulwell the slot jack has 4 contacts
00:24:53PsycoXulsome part of it's probably pretty much just a line-in
00:26:25PsycoXulthe recording's accessed from a menu item
00:26:43PsycoXulyou select it and it says to plug the remote thing in for a second, and then goes to a basic recording screen
00:26:52PsycoXulwith meters and such
00:27:11PsycoXulso i could probably just try the contacts and watch those meters and find it
00:30:05PsycoXulmy first impression is that HW-wise it's superiour to the archos... but the firmware does seem to have some of the characteristic silly limitations
00:30:37PsycoXullike the backlight timeout.. you can select 3, 5, 15, etc from a dropdown menu... heh
00:31:25BoD[]that's not for the power user
00:32:23PsycoXuloh yeah since they have a 20GB and a 60GB version, i'd assume it's made to where they can easily put either in durring the assembly... so that gives me hope of upgradability
00:32:28Zagorcontact creative and ask if they would like to publish their hardware specs to the rockbox project :)
00:32:35PsycoXulit's also got 16MB of ram
00:33:16BoD[]do you know have an idea of the processors inside ?
00:33:19PsycoXulafter i familiarize myself with it's operation and am secure in it's non-defectiveness, i'll probably tear it open, see how hard it'll be to upgrade, take pics of all the boards, etc
00:33:49PsycoXulon the outside it's just got 7 little phillips screws
00:33:58PsycoXuland no warranty void stickers
00:34:28Zagorwee :)
00:37:42PsycoXulapparently it uses all the same file transfer stuffs as the older nomad jukebox's, which have already been all reverse engineered and implimented in a handfull of different projects
00:40:46PsycoXulthis might be cool and fun... but in the meantime, i must sleep
00:40:51PsycoXuli'm up waaay past my bedtime
00:41:04PsycoXuland tomorrow i'll be getting my sennheiser hd-280pro headphones

01:45:09tracktheripperhi Scott
01:47:35scott666how fast is the processor in the archos?
01:48:10Zagoranyone here with a hitachi DK23DA drive?
01:48:47Zagordo you have the red led dead problem?
01:49:20tracktheripperhappened to me a few times
01:50:23Zagorscott666: someone should try this:
01:50:44Zagorit's a firmware update for those hitachi disks
01:51:21scott666hows it work/
01:51:35Zagoryou need to remove the drive and put it in a computer
01:51:39Plughyou need a thinkpad
01:51:46ZagorPlugh: are you sure?
01:52:13Plughunless IBM has made changes in the past 10 years, I'm sure
01:52:15Zagorscott666: which firmware version do you have? (debug->disk info, right)
01:52:18 Quit tracktheripper ("Leaving")
01:52:23scott666The supported models are as follows:
01:52:23scott666- ThinkPad R31
01:52:24Plughbut I don't count on IBM to make changes
01:52:31Zagorit's still worth trying
01:52:57scott666zagor: hold on, ill check
01:53:11Zagorhere's the same thing from dell:
01:53:38Zagoror here for the html page:
01:53:44Plughoh, that fixes the click?
01:53:55PlughI'd love to disable that silly click
01:55:00scott666i have firmware 00J2A0A1
01:55:30Zagorthe update is A0B6
01:55:39Zagorum, no
01:56:00Zagor"A0F3 for Hitachi 20GB DK23DA-20"
01:56:19Zagorlovely version numbering :)
01:56:47scott666its in hex
01:56:48scott666no wait
01:56:50scott666theres a J
01:57:02Plughwe should see if we can dump the patch directly to the drive through the Archos
01:57:19Zagorwhoa :)
01:57:20BoD[]would it be possible ?
01:57:29scott666yeah! lets make a plugin
01:57:47*Plugh instigates
01:57:49BoD[]how does a hard drive firmware patch work ?
01:58:16scott666you put it on a floppy and boot from it i think
01:58:25Zagorthere are ata commands to upload new firmware to the drive
01:58:34BoD[]oh ok :)
01:59:04BoD[]it would be fun to have this plugin
01:59:16Plughdrive patcher?
01:59:22Plughyeah, that'd rock
01:59:26BoD[]rockbox the firmware that FIXES your drive :))
01:59:56Plughthe problem with it being a plugin is the 32k limit
02:00:13PlughI figure it's probably bigger than that
02:00:37scott666almost 700k
02:00:41Plughyou'd have to find a way to stream data from a file to the ATA bus
02:01:00BoD[]well the plugin needs a file
02:01:07BoD[]not that a big problem :)
02:01:13Plughor perhaps even load it into the device RAM
02:01:32Plughthen cut the connection to the drive and patch it
02:01:59scott666yeah you just have to make it make sure theres no music playing
02:07:13scott666is that the silence of people in serious thought?
02:07:26scott666or did everyone just lose interest

02:27:39Plughso, who thinks we can give people a hard drive patcher for their rockbox? :)
02:29:33scott666i do!
02:29:58Plughya know...
02:30:16Plughwe could do it as a replacement OS
02:30:48Plughwho says it has to be a plugin?
02:31:10scott666thats the easiest way
02:31:37Plugheasier to barebone a firmware image
02:32:14Plughcopy it to the drive, boot it to patch, then plug it into the USB and put the right firmware in
02:32:23Plughthat way it doesn't get used accidentally

03:42:21Plughooh! Put em on my back. I need a massage
03:42:24MT4 hrs solid playing and the earphone hasnt messed up yet
03:42:52MTnot bad for a first time solder job, using a soldering iron that looks like it last saw action in the early 80s
03:43:29PlughI haven't done much soldering since the late 80s
03:43:36MTi may give it a clean actually
03:43:42MTthe tip looked fairly knackered
03:43:59Plughbut I used to be able to solder a patch wire to a surface mounted chip without too much effort
03:44:05MTthe only bit that got hot was the side of the tip where i scraped some decade old solder off the side
03:44:24MTi found it really disconcerting when the solder gave off smoke too :)
03:44:42MTi kept having to stop, boot up the unit just to reassure myself i hadnt killed it

03:45:43Plughdon't solder on a device with the batteries in

03:45:57diddystar5_:) ouch
03:47:11MTnot much option
03:47:25MTthe batteries are fully wedged in until you free the solder points
03:47:48MTthen they pretty much drop out :)
03:48:08Plughyeah. silly design
03:48:57MTi actually prefer it to the recorder

05:37:37midknight2k3who is it who said something about office space?
05:47:14midknight2k3you can't make the disk firmware patch into a firmware itself
05:47:23midknight2k3archos supports only to 200kb and it's over 700
05:47:56>>>"seen" used by midknight2k3 ( [snoop prevented]

05:51:36PsycoXulapparently their "filesystem" is more sortof just a method of storing the data and not so much a filesystem in the traditional sense
05:51:49PsycoXulone you upgrade the drive, you just re-install the firmware and start transferring your files
05:51:57PsycoXulno formatting or anything
05:52:02midknight2k3that's nice to kniw
05:52:14midknight2k3i remember that first day i came in here
05:52:19midknight2k3"I have a question."
05:52:38midknight2k3<PsycoXul> If you have a question, ask it. Don't state it.
05:53:04PsycoXulyou lucky
05:53:05midknight2k3at least i don't have to talk to you often :)
05:53:15PsycoXuli might've just told you to hang on to it, keep it in a bottle
05:53:33PsycoXulwith a warning of how if you don't keep an eye on it, you might wake up one day and find it gone with nothing left but an answer
05:54:09midknight2k3i would have cried and never looked at rockbox again
05:54:16midknight2k3to afraid of the hard drive password lock thing
05:55:08PsycoXulheh a google search for the terms creative zen hack returns some pretty mixed results
05:55:18PsycoXulactualy hack OR hacks OR hacking
05:55:27midknight2k3so does "smashing a computer monitor" :\
05:56:19midknight2k3i did get a good video
05:56:24midknight2k3someone shooting it with a rifle
05:56:32midknight2k3and another blowtorching it
05:56:36midknight2k3but that's all really
05:58:20midknight2k3so who hears of this drive firmware upgrade?
05:58:27midknight2k3i blew it lol
05:58:55midknight2k3the neighbors had this old computer by the trash and i wanted to sneak over at night and snag the hard drive
05:58:58midknight2k3the next day it's gone
05:59:09midknight2k3it would have been great to throw off the roof
06:00:00midknight2k3so uh this firmware thing
06:00:07midknight2k3it stops the hard drive clicks?
06:02:35PsycoXulheh the shutdown takes longer than the startup on this thing
06:02:44midknight2k3what thing?
06:02:49PsycoXulthe zen
06:02:57midknight2k3you got the ZEN?
06:03:07midknight2k3you're kidding me
06:03:09midknight2k3no more rockbox?
06:03:25PsycoXulunless i guess you leave it shutoff for more than 24 hours.. apparently it goes into a sorta standby mode for 24 hours, so it starts up instantly within 24 hours of being shutoff
06:03:30PsycoXulyeah :/
06:03:33PsycoXulthey didn't have anything else
06:03:42midknight2k3that's junk
06:03:49midknight2k3WHAT IF I HAVE TO?
06:03:52midknight2k3when mine dies?
06:03:55PsycoXulactualy so far it seems pretty good
06:03:56midknight2k3i shudder to think...
06:04:01PsycoXulit needs a rockbox
06:04:01midknight2k3no more rockbox..
06:04:06midknight2k3i agree
06:04:08PsycoXulbut as far as hardware goes it seems better than the archos
06:04:17midknight2k3tell me about it
06:04:38PsycoXulwell it supports mp3, wma, and wav, which gives me hope for the possibility of ogg
06:04:51midknight2k3you want ogg?
06:05:14PsycoXulwell ogg isn't much in and of itself actualy
06:05:17PsycoXulbut vorbis>*
06:05:31midknight2k3there firmware update?
06:05:36midknight2k3i see none
06:05:40PsycoXulit also has some fancy processing capabilities
06:05:45PsycoXulyes, there is
06:05:46midknight2k3like what?
06:05:56midknight2k3processing: what, firmware:where?
06:06:18PsycoXulwell it has time-scaling, 4-band EQ, and environmental effects (simulate various halls and rooms and such)
06:06:33midknight2k3wheres the firmware thing
06:07:36midknight2k3does it record?
06:07:48PsycoXulit can
06:07:56PsycoXulbut you supposedly need an accessory to do it
06:08:09PsycoXulthat plugs into this little 4-contact slot-shaped jack next to the headphone jack
06:08:32midknight2k3whats the options?
06:08:35PsycoXuli'm gonna try to find which contacts maybe act as the line-in

06:33:45PsycoXulbut since it's usb protocol has been reverse engineered and implimented in a handful of projects, i'm thinking i can find some way to scrutinize the firmware heh
06:34:04midknight2k3scrutinize the firmware eh lol
06:34:07DBUGEnqueued KICK midknight2k3
06:34:28midknight2k3if you have a bin file is it simple to write a replacement?
06:34:46midknight2k3never mind
06:35:56PsycoXulnot simple :p
06:36:08midknight2k3is that what rockbox did?
06:36:15PsycoXulit's enabling
06:36:18PsycoXulbut not simple
06:36:39midknight2k3rockbox started with a bin file?
06:36:43PsycoXulahh i remember the early days of rockbox
06:37:01PsycoXulthey figured out how to descramble the mod file
06:37:24PsycoXuland then disassembled it and worked their voodoo
06:37:42PsycoXuland wrote a re-scrambler
06:37:44midknight2k3dude! im busy here
06:37:50PsycoXuland before long there was a new firmware up to try
06:37:56midknight2k3"how to smash tv tubes"
06:37:56PsycoXula happy fun LED BLINKER
06:38:12PsycoXuli broke a TV once

06:38:28PsycoXulor 12
06:38:34PsycoXuland i had a slingshot and some marbles
06:38:42MTi used to break stereos

06:39:12MTand old speakers
06:39:18MTgood magnets in speakers
06:39:31PsycoXulit broke the glass and it started like hissing and shit
06:39:35PsycoXulfreaked me the fuck out
06:39:44MTnever underestimate the appeal of magnets to an 8 yr old
06:39:58PsycoXulmagnets are good

06:42:27midknight2k3if it was off, i'd ask for a hammer
06:43:54midknight2k3did your mom ground you?
06:44:15PsycoXulground me hmm i don't think so
06:44:24PsycoXuli forget
06:44:29PsycoXuli was probably put on some sorta restrictions
06:44:31midknight2k3was it an expensive tv?
06:44:41midknight2k3did it make a hole in the tv?
06:44:41PsycoXulbut my parents were never the grounding type heh
06:45:03PsycoXulit made a broken indentation in the glass sorta and cracks around it
06:45:16midknight2k3did you run crying?
06:45:18PsycoXuland no i don't think it was really expensive.. like i said, it was old
06:45:36midknight2k3well your kid days must have been awhile ago when color didn't exist?
06:45:59PsycoXulum, no
06:46:00PsycoXuli'm only 22

06:47:13PsycoXuli called my dad and was like uh i shot a marble at the tv and broke it and it's hissing like it's leaking gas or something what do i do
06:47:17PsycoXuli was home alone at the time
06:47:35midknight2k3did he yell?
06:47:55midknight2k3did it just go blank or did it like shoot electricity from inside?
06:47:58PsycoXulmy parents are very cool, laid back people
06:48:00PsycoXulit just went blank
06:48:13midknight2k3did your throw it away?
06:48:35PsycoXulyeah i guess so

06:48:56midknight2k3take some advice
06:49:04midknight2k3it's short and to the point
06:59:01midknight2k3i suppose it's not something "normal people" will ever do in their life

11:35:03Bagderwhat do you mean?
11:35:39blastman007there are some with 5200 rpm and others 4200rpm
11:36:00Bagderso, get the one using the least power
11:36:14Bagderhigher rpm tends to mean more power
11:36:15blastman007which ?
11:39:06blastman007wow there is one witz 7200rpm but i dont think my player needs this
11:39:17Hesdefinetely not

11:41:23blastman007i have a hitachi but can is use a fujitsu ?
11:42:03Bagderyou can use any brand
11:42:09Bagderif its the right size

11:42:30BagderI guess
11:43:27blastman007what is consumption ?
11:43:37Bagderhow much power the disk needs
11:43:56blastman007no i want bigger size
11:43:56Bagderhow fast it'll drain your batteries
11:44:16Bagderbut they will differ
11:44:40blastman007i know that 7200rpm would need more power (logical)

19:09:32Plugha new hard drive only changes how much you can store. It doesn't affect the function
19:09:55neofightok maybe i buy me an bigger one
19:10:19PlughI need to do that myself. I found a pretty good price on a 30gig
19:10:39neofighthow much ?
19:10:42PlughI really want an 80gig, but it's too expensive
19:10:52Plughthe 30gig was about $109US
19:10:53neofighti know
19:11:04Plugh80 was $299
19:11:17neofightmaybe i wish me one for christmas

19:12:40MT(£134.30 inc vat)
19:12:59MTthats about $200
19:13:05neofightwith 60gb ?
19:13:22MTbut i wouldnt get that one
19:13:37neofightwait a moment
19:13:39MTFujitsu MHS2060AT 60GB 2.5" 4200rpm Notebook HDD <<−− uses less power
19:14:07MTaltho i will probably end up with a hitachi
19:14:10MTmuch cheaper
19:14:16Plughno doubt
19:14:40Plughdid you see our little discussion about the Hitachi firmware upgrade?
19:14:51neofightlook at this waht is "Gn" ?
19:14:55Plughthere's a patch to make it stop clicking
19:15:09neofightwhere ?
19:15:23neofightit really annois me when i record from mic
19:15:23Plughdell and IBM sites
19:15:40MTaltho, we only have dell and ibm updates right?
19:15:46PlughI wanna make an archos patcher
19:15:48neofightcan you give me an link ?`
19:16:07neofightwer cant use it ?
19:16:14MTdo you want a more specific link? ;p
19:16:21Plughgn is just their model number
19:16:21neofightyes `?
19:16:28neofightah ok
19:16:51Plughyou'd have to put the drive in an IBM or Dell laptop to patch it right now
19:17:23neofighthow does it work ?
19:17:24PlughI wanna make a Rockbox plugin or special firmware to do the patch, so we don't have to remove the drive
19:19:06neofightwhat means "remove the drive" ?
19:20:07Plughtaking it out of the case
19:20:20neofighti did that just today
19:20:37neofightits very easy if you have some photos
19:21:06Plughmine is still under warranty
19:21:35neofighti bough mine on ebay i dont think i could use warranty because i live in germany
19:22:26MTits not so easy on the fm :)
19:22:39neofighti can use a adapter to connect an 2.5" with 3.5"
19:22:53neofightso i can put it in the normal computer
19:23:05neofightwith this tool
19:23:24neofightso can i do this with the patch ?
19:23:40MTto get the hd out of the fm recorder, you have to desolder 7 points
19:24:16neofightbut its possible and much worth ;-)
19:24:19Plughthat will work Neo
19:24:35neofightso tell me what is musst do
19:25:00neofighti connect it with the computer as a normal harddrive, right ?
19:25:13Plughyou need to buy the drive, format it FAT32 in a Windows or Linux machine, and put it in your archos
19:25:50neofightwhich drive ?
19:25:52PlughLinux may be better, because you can't partition that big a drive as FAT32 under Windows
19:26:02Plughany 2.5" hard drive
19:26:16neofightcant i use my archos drive?
19:26:39Plughwhat are you trying to do?
19:27:06neofighti want this patch you said that the disk is not clicking
19:27:39Plughyou need to take the drive out, put it in a Dell or IBM laptop, download their patch, and run it
19:28:10neofightcas but instead i use a laptop i could connect it with this adapter in my computer
19:28:29Plughthe Dell patch only runs on Dell laptops
19:28:32Plughand same for IBM
19:28:34neofighti have no laptop
19:28:52Plughthen you won't be able to run that patch yet
19:29:24neofightand why only in laptops ?
19:29:39Plughbecause the patch only works on the computer it's made for
19:30:08neofightbut i can then put it back in my player ?
19:30:34neofightand it doesen make clicks
19:30:50Plughthat's what they say

19:52:02blastman007hmmm a dream
19:52:40blastman007by the way, what is the fastest consumer pc in the usa ?
19:52:41 Quit Malphas__ (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
19:52:47scott666zagor sounded vaugely interesting in reverse engineering a nomad zen though
19:52:57scott666probably the mac G5
19:53:05scott666theres just no programs for it
19:53:07blastman007how fast
19:53:19blastman007ghz ?
19:53:25scott666dual 2.4ghz 64bit procesors
19:53:38blastman0070 4.8 ?
19:53:43blastman007= 4.8 ?
19:54:07blastman007but you said dual
19:54:17scott666there are 2 of them
19:54:31blastman007what two ?
19:54:44MTif you have two cars, both have a top speed of 150km/h, strapping them together doesnt make it for 300km/h
19:55:04MTthe most the G5 goes to is 2GHz
19:55:05scott666good analagy
19:55:15blastman007but when the firts car pushes the other ;-)
19:55:35blastman007but that isen't the fastet in the usa ?
19:56:14scott666no, it is
19:56:15MTyou think Hz matters?
19:56:31scott666theyre faster cause theyre 64bit
19:56:37Plughmy boss just ordered me a 3.0GHz machine for my Windows box
19:56:39scott666newer technology
19:56:48MTnot really scott
19:56:49blastman007i have a 2.53ghz
19:56:52Plugh3.06 actually
19:57:02blastman007look at this wait a sec
19:57:04scott666i heard they were way ahead in benchmarks
19:57:33scott666the 3.06s sucked, 533 FSB instead of 800
19:57:37MTthey are faster because they have a hideously huge fsb, and a massive cache and can do massively more instructions per clock
19:57:50blastman007−−afk 3min
19:58:46PlughI don't care if it sucks or not. It's gotta be better than my 500MHz
19:59:34scott666i just ordered a new computer too
19:59:50scott666going from a 600mhz p3 to an athlon xp 30000+
19:59:57blastman007i read a lot of articels on
20:00:09blastman007but amd sucks
20:00:14MTwhen you go to buy a g5 on apples site
20:00:21MTone of the configuration options
20:00:27MTis to select which ipod you want
20:00:35scott666amd kicks ass, wtf are you talking about?
20:01:07MTSubtotal Please note that your subtotal does not include sales tax or rebates. $10,763.95
20:01:11MTbit pricey
20:01:15blastman007i first bought me an amd 2400+ and it sucked really
20:01:25scott666copmpared to what?
20:01:30blastman007then i bought me this p4 with 2.53 and its much better
20:01:44blastman007in GTA the graphiv was very bad
20:01:58scott666that has nothing to do with the processor
20:02:06scott666or little anyway
20:02:23blastman007when i was burning a cd i couldn't do anythin else becaue it was too slow
20:02:37scott666how much ram did you have?
20:03:01blastman007it was exactly same pc but amd
20:03:08Plughmy 1800+ is just fine
20:03:12Plughwith burning too
20:04:05MTblastman007: I have an amd athlon 1GHz, and i play CS whilst burning discs ..
20:04:10blastman007now i have 1gig ram and no problems first i thought that 512 is enough but i had the chance to buy another 512 for 40€ and i did it
20:04:39blastman007i dont know it was an 2400+ and i didnt work
20:04:57blastman007bur you dont burn cd with 48 x ?
20:06:08PlughI don't have a 48x burner
20:06:20Plughjust 8x
20:06:41blastman007yes thats because yours is not lagging when burning a cd because it mustns read so much data
20:07:22blastman007and burn a cd with 48x with an AMD 2400+ and play Cs wont work , with a p4 2.53ghz it works :-)
20:08:23scott666id be interested to see if it worked with a p4 2.4
20:08:24Plughas long as I can play Everquest, I don't care what else the computer does ;)
20:08:45blastman007sure those 100mhz
20:08:59scott666could make the difference
20:09:21scott666probably not but itd still be interesting to see
20:09:47blastman007and when i think about 3d mark muahaha with the amd i got 7900 wiht my p4 now i have 12000
20:10:28blastman007sometimes over 13000 i can send you an screenshot
20:10:34scott666did you have enough cooling though?
20:11:08blastman007i actually have 5 fans 2 on my gForce
20:11:21Plughhaha! Arnold Schwarzenegger is the Running Man in California now ;)
20:13:45PlughI dunno who I want more to be my governer. The former body builder who was doping steroids and smoking pot in front of TV cameras or Larry Flynt, the editor in chief of Hustler magazine...
20:14:45scott666and what about gary coleman??
20:15:19Plughis he running?
20:15:42PlughI think he's gonna get shorted on the vote
20:16:45Plughthis is California. Name recognition will win
20:16:58PlughArnold probably has the most
20:17:12Plughissues are right out the window now

21:10:57Guesthello - i have a question about rockbox. I just flashed my recorder, and it works great, but i want to add the most recent daily build. on the instructions, it says to descramble the ajbrec.ajz file by "descramble ajbrec.ajz rockbox.bin". How do I do this?
21:11:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:11:33diddystar5do you know how to use a command prompt?
21:12:46Guestwhat should i type in?
21:13:20diddystar5ok, what download
21:13:47diddystar5is has the tool "descramble"
21:15:00diddystar5somewhere in it, there is descramble, i think it is in tools/win32
21:15:10Guestyeah, thats it
21:16:58diddystar5in the command prompt type "cd C:/(wherever yousaved it)"
21:17:11diddystar5then use the descramble comand
21:20:24Guestwait - i just loked at the daily build screen again - and it has a ucl file i can download - is this the final output file from the orocess listed on the "flashing rockbox' page?
21:20:26diddystar5btw: you don't need to descramble and ucl it any more all you need is the ucl file on the daily build page
21:20:36Guestthen i would just haveto download the ucl file?
21:20:51diddystar5yes and save it to the root of you jukebox
21:20:55Guestlol - great minds think alike
21:21:37diddystar5and then just rin the rockbox_flash plugin and your set :)
21:21:58Guestok - thanks alot for all your help
21:22:02hardeepnah, just PLAY the ucl file
21:22:07hardeepit can be anywhere
21:22:11diddystar5yer welcome!
21:22:21hardeepmake sure the rockbox_flash plugin is in /.rockbox/rocks
21:22:44Guestok , cool
21:22:46hardeepand you're running the latest daily build
21:22:52scott666actually if its his fisrt time running it he would have to do the plugin
21:22:56scott666or rolo
21:23:11Guestcome again?
21:23:28Guesti already flashed my recorder if that is what u mean
21:23:28scott666cause hed have the old version that doesnt have the play ucl file code
21:23:39scott666yeah but have you updated the second image?
21:24:09Guestum -i dont think so - i just folowed the instructions onthe web page for flashing rockbox
21:25:00Guestshould i use the rockbox_flash.rock file?
21:25:11Guestor should i just play the ucl file?
21:25:22diddystar5for your first flash yes
21:25:30diddystar5*run rockbox_flash
21:25:36Guestoh, ok
21:25:39diddystar5then after that you can "play" it
21:26:19Guestok - and this willl work for all the daily builds after 2003-07-10 ?
21:26:30Guestjust playing the ucl i mean
21:27:27diddystar507-10 i'm not sure... just use the lastest daily builds
21:28:14Guestthanks again everybody
21:28:23Guesti'll go try it out
21:28:48 Quit Guest ("Leaving")
21:29:22scott666shouldve just told him to download the new ajbrec and rolo and then play the ucl
21:29:25scott666ahh well
21:31:54Plughone of these days I'll get around to flashing
21:32:13Plughbut that'll be after I stabilize
21:32:36scott666youre unstable?

21:36:12Plugh*grr* fucking credit card bastards...
21:37:20Plughthey called me up and said my payment was past due, even though I mailed it 3 weeks ago. So they convince me to go ahead and make another payment over the phone. So I check my statement and they charged me $8 to do that

21:38:46GuestHi, im back - it worked great - thanks agin to everybody who helped
21:40:14Guesti have one questuion though - i wanted to know if it was a bug or something, but when the charger is plugged in, and i am playing music, or whatever, when i hold the off button as if to turn it off - it goes into the charger mode, except that the lcd is on, and in about 3 second intervals flashes
21:40:32Guestit only happend when i hold the off button down
21:42:17Guestdoes anybody know if this is a bug, or is it something to do with my machine?
21:49:45Guestanybody here?
21:53:40Guestlol - thats good enough for me
21:53:52Guestcan u answer my question?
21:53:54Plughholding the off button is a different state
21:54:02Plughit's a hardware powerdown
21:54:15Guestwhat do u mean?
21:54:49Plughif you hold the button for 5 sec, it will shut the player off and do a reset, regardless of how locked up it is
21:55:15Guestoh, ok - thats good
21:56:27Guestok, well thanks - i think i wil go enjoy my "new" jukebox now!

23:00:14PlughI still like it

23:00:24midknight2k3\it's good
23:00:26midknight2k3for paint
23:00:59tracktheripperwould u find it useful for recording as its easier to see how far u can push recording levels before clipping?
23:01:20Plughhaha! My step-daughter just IM's me: What's 30% of 756? <Me> 226.8 <Her> shit
23:01:35Plughtrack: totally
23:01:46tracktheripperit should be possible as all you are doing is inverting tle last few pixels
23:01:46midknight2k3it's very close to the bottom
23:01:57midknight2k3starts with <mk2k3> Zagor: how about this idea?
23:02:05midknight2k3WE KNOW
23:02:09midknight2k3it is possible
23:02:12midknight2k3it will be done
23:02:19midknight2k3and a patch will be put up
23:02:19tracktherippercool :-)
23:02:22midknight2k3you have to compile it\
23:02:33tracktheripperthen you can fix "Reshuffle when playlist repeasts"
23:03:45midknight2k3<Zagor> midknight2k3: mode? there is no mode. we turn it on or off when we want it on or off. it's completely software controlled.
23:03:49PlughI've never used a playlist
23:04:00Plughand thanks for reminding me about the IRC logs
23:04:00midknight2k3<midknight2k3> i meant a menu, where you choose either HD Activity, Keypress, or HD Power and rockbox will show accordingly
23:04:10midknight2k3<Zagor> i prefer "useful" to "cool" myself... :-)
23:04:19midknight2k3<midknight2k3> or light the led when the peak meter reaches in to the still-to-come redzone?
23:04:22PlughI don't wanna say something I'll regret and have it saved and searchable for eternity
23:04:30midknight2k3like what?
23:04:42midknight2k3<midknight2k3> when recording make the red light flash if the recording has clipped and otherwise make it show hd activity

23:29:13Plughbreast size
23:29:27BoD[]oh ok the rest of her proportional?
23:29:36BoD[]here we have metric system for that ;)))
23:30:06Plughscott666: proportional for 42DD would be... odd looking
23:30:17scott666i wouldve never thought the metric system extended into cup size
23:30:19BoD[]we mesure that in centimeter, plus a letter indicating the "depth"
23:30:37BoD[]thus, "90b" is good
23:30:47scott666by odd looking do you mean fat?
23:31:16scott666whats the inch/cm ratio?
23:31:21scott6662.6cm = inch?
23:31:24BoD[]$ units
23:31:29PlughI thought it was 2.25
23:31:35Plughbut I could be wrong
23:31:36scott666im not sure
23:31:38Plughis it 2.54?
23:31:54Plughthat's be 107cm
23:31:55BoD[]90cm == 35,4 inches
23:32:06scott666i want a calculator plugin
23:32:59Plughmy requests were for using hard drive space as memory, like a virtual memory scheme
23:33:29Plughand the flash utility for the hard drive BIOS so people don't have to disassemble their units to get rid of the hard drive clicks
23:33:59scott666how would useing the HD for memory be helpful?
23:34:26scott666we want LESS HD spin-ups
23:34:46Plughwouldn't it be nice to be able to store your entire address book on your hard drive?
23:34:49Plughbefore a mad scientist goes mad, there's probably a time when he's only
23:34:52Plughpartially mad, and this is the time when he's going to throw his best

23:37:28PlughI have a palm phone
23:37:37Plughbut I'm trying to find something less bulky

23:39:05scott666as soon as they get a phone and interenet

23:45:39ljx805anyone around?
23:47:57Plughbut hardeep answers questions real good. I'm just a troublemaker
23:48:27ljx805i was wondering if u can give me some advice....i was looking to buy the archos jukebox 5000
23:48:31ljx805any good
23:48:51PlughI have an FM Recorder that I can tell you all about
23:49:05Plughbut the 5000 looks pretty good
23:49:21ljx805and by adding roxbox would it improve it alot more
23:49:25ljx805im kinda new
23:49:52PlughI don't think it has the flash ram, so I don't believe it can store rockbox settings same as the recorders
23:50:04Plughbut I think it puts them on the hard drive
23:51:05hardeepljx805: i'd recommend getting a recorder or fm recorder instead of the studio 5000
23:51:08ljx805so it just buts off the default settings
23:51:38hardeepljx805: rockbox is available for both, but the number of features is significantly larger for the recorders
23:51:38ljx805i mean i would get a recorder but i just but an amp and a sub in my car so im kinda of broke and this is the cheapest harddrive player
23:51:44hardeepprimarily because of the lcd screen
23:52:30ljx805is the 5000 really different from the 6000 except the for the amount of space on it
23:52:41hardeepljx805: someone posted a recorder 15 for $160US which is fairly close to studio prices
23:53:26ljx805really? do you kno what site that was?
23:53:27hardeepljx805: yeah, storage space is the big difference between the two
23:53:56hardeepljx805: not online, it was at Fry's which is a retail electronics store is their online site but I don't see it listed there
23:55:01 Quit keno (".oOo.")
23:55:06ljx805i guess those cheaper 5gb, 6gb, 10gb players are very hard to come by
23:55:24ljx805the one im getting is from whis is in my area
23:55:28hardeepljx805: archos doesn't sell them anymore... only the 15s and 20s
23:55:32ljx805i dont have a fry's near me
23:56:06hardeepljx805: you might want to check the recorder prices at j&r... i received a flyer from them a few weeks ago that had a pretty good price on the jbr15
23:56:17hardeepi don't remember the exact price but it was < $200

23:58:11ljx805i appreciate the help hardeep
23:58:35hardeepljx805: the studio 5000 is still not bad and, to answer your question, rockbox will definitely make it better
