02:00:43top_blokeask away
02:00:53top_blokealthough i dont know much

02:01:11Plughyou don't have to ask permission to ask a question in here
02:01:34Plughhell, don't even make sure someone's around before asking it
02:01:35top_blokeput it in the topic
02:01:44PlughI can't :(
02:02:05top_bloketheres no ops in this chan
02:02:40Plughand when the chanserv comes through to op someone, it's the bot
02:02:56Plughand he kicks everyone who's ever pasted more than 3 consecutive lines
02:02:59top_blokehow often is that>?
02:03:08Plughonce a month or so, it seems
02:03:10***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:03:35Plughsagegoku: please, ask your question :)
02:03:56sagegokuk i just didnt want to go through the trouble of typing it
02:04:08sagegokuif noone was gunna answer
02:04:08sagegokuMY QUESTION
02:04:25sagegokuwhat is the purpose of the 'viewer' under plugins
02:04:30top_blokehere it comes...
02:04:41sagegokuRecorder 20, daily build 10/7/03
02:04:42top_blokeopen txt files?
02:05:09sagegokubut cant you do that just by playing the text file?
02:05:10top_blokeit is used when u play a .txt
02:05:30sagegokuor does it enhance it?
02:05:45Plughit's the same one
02:05:57Plughplaying a text file invokes the viewer
02:07:24sagegokucuz i loaded harry potter 5
02:07:30sagegokuand i was reading it
02:07:45sagegokuand i decided it was better to just buy the book...
02:08:02top_blokeon an archos?
02:08:46top_blokeinteresting idea
02:08:55top_blokealthough the screen is so small
02:09:09sagegokuits kinda hard to read
02:09:20top_bloketry a big fint
02:09:27sagegokuand it takes like 30 seconds to make the scroll bar change
02:09:35sagegokucuz its a 870 page book
02:09:43top_blokeu have the whole book as 1 .txt?
02:10:00top_blokesplit it up
02:10:46sagegokuyah thats what im gunna do
02:11:02sagegokuim doing it by 300 line sections
02:11:13sagegokui made a vb program to do that for me...
02:11:23sagegokuim way too fucking lazy
02:11:33sagegokuwhats the best font that is big?
02:11:41top_bloketheyre all big
02:11:44sagegokuthat doesnt look like shit
02:11:48top_blokei use a small ass one
02:12:21top_blokeso i dont know the big ones
02:12:23sagegokulol i use system
02:12:48sagegokucour16b is good
02:12:51top_blokei got uwe-something
02:13:34sagegokuor iso 11
02:13:41top_blokei never went thru them all
02:14:01top_blokeits thin
02:14:44sagegokusystem takes up just as much room per line and its more visible
02:17:16sagegokuanother q
02:17:23sagegokuwhats the hello world thing about?
02:17:52top_blokeit does?
02:17:56top_blokei gotta try system
02:18:07top_blokeits an example plugin
02:18:53top_blokeas simple as it gets
02:18:56sagegokuand what about firmware-flash?
02:19:07top_blokeflashes your box
02:19:41top_blokeit needs a ucl or something
02:26:40sagegokuk tahnx

02:37:39zeso i came up with this little thing.. i'm not saying it'd break earnshaw's theorum and levitate or anything, but i'm kinda wondering what exactly it would do to not levitate heh
02:39:30zemaybe it'd somehow twist anyway or stick to one side or something ... but *shrug*

15:09:52Hadakaanyone here who's using a flashed rockbox?
15:14:06Hadakahow's the charging these days when you just plug in the charger? the document I read said it was only rudimentary still?
15:14:10 Join track [0] (
15:15:04Hadakaor hmm
15:15:15Hadaka"Latest Rockbox now has a charging screen, but it is in an early stage. You'll get it when the unit is off and you plug in the charger."
15:15:49Hadakadoes that mean that the charging *screen* is in an early stage, but the charging algorithm is the one rockbox normally uses? what about deep discharge and trickle charge?
15:15:50 Quit track (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
15:21:07dsgHadaka: The way I understand it it uses the rockbox charging algorithm. However it doesn't read the settings for deepdischarge and such until it's booted fully.
15:21:10dsgbut gone, food.
15:21:53Hadakadsg: okay, thanks!
15:21:57HadakaI'll be going for food as well

16:34:14Hadakahmmh, if I download the full build from the daily builds page - it already has the full .rockbox dir with the firmware_flash.rock and a suitable ucl
16:34:29 Join dsg [0] (
16:34:39Hadakabut it doesn't have the firmware_rec.bin - do I need to put that one in separately?
16:35:45HadakaI guess so, copied it in
16:44:14Hadakawhee! seems to work perfectly
16:46:04Hadakasome 8 seconds from pressing ON to resuming playback of a 4000 song playlist
16:46:49Hadakamy HD has a very long spinup time anyway, over 5 seconds from power off
16:47:04Hadakanow, time to compare this to the archos firmware version

19:33:22Plughhi golot
19:33:29Plughif you have a question, just ask it
19:33:36Plughit will get answered... eventually
19:38:08golotcan anyone send me something so I could get the chip8 games somehow to work... I dont know anything in programing or all that :(
19:48:26 Quit dsg_ ("Lost terminal")
19:51:04Plughthen you're probably going to have a hard time of it
19:51:21Plughthe chip8 patch is a bit behind the current development
19:51:31Plughso you'd need to patch the changes by hand
19:51:55Plughand compile your own copy of the firmware
19:58:12 Join AciD [0] (
19:59:14golotah? how do I do that?! :-?
20:01:38Plughfirst you install the development environment according to the docs on the project page
20:01:56PlughI assume you don't have cygwin installed. You'll probably need to do that first
20:01:59golotdo i need to know any programing for this?
20:02:11golotwhere do I get that?
20:02:14golotoh shit :(
20:02:18golotI dont know shit about programing
20:02:30Plughyou're going to need to find the new places in the code that the patch should go
20:02:32golotthanks for the help man...
20:02:37Plugha lot of stuff has moved around
20:02:52Plughit's possible someone has done a chip8 build
20:03:00Plughask on the mailing list
20:03:11golotthere was a dude here who told me he can make it for me in 10 mins and DCC it to me, but then his computer was doing problems and he logged off...
20:03:12Plughthey may be able to just give you the firmware file
20:03:32***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:03:53golotwhats a firmware file?
20:04:03golotisnt there just a .rock file somewhere
20:04:42Plughit requires a lot more than just a .rock
20:04:53Plughthe firmware needs to be re-written
20:05:37PlughI found the patch file against 4 month old code
20:06:15Plughwhat unit do you have?
20:06:57PlughFM or recorder 20?
20:11:04Plughthe cvs server is fubar
20:11:10golotits harder to make?
20:11:30Plughfucked up beyond all repair
20:12:07PlughI can't get the source code checked out
20:12:47golotwhy is that?
20:13:00Plughbecause Sourceforge is overloaded
20:13:41golotwont it be repaired or something?
20:14:08Plughit hasn't been in 2 months. I have no reason to expect it to be fixed today
20:14:35PlughI have a script to pound it until I get a socket
20:16:27Plughhard to believe the chip8 patch is a year old
20:16:40Plughwith no changes
20:22:32Plughwell, I'm supposed to be 80 miles from here in 35 minutes and I haven't even gotten a shower yet
20:22:41Plughso I'm out of time to work on this
20:31:24golotthanks anyway man
20:31:36golottake care.....
20:31:41golotIll ask other ppl here later
20:32:01golotmaybe Ill find MidKnights2k3 (I think that was his name)....

23:25:27dsgtop_bloke: Because it's a development enviroment, and idiots shouldn't be developing.
23:25:36dsgNot that they don't... but they shouldn't.
23:26:04r5rd5tcgcbut what if an idiot wants to learn
23:26:42 Nick r5rd5tcgc is now known as topbloke (
23:26:56topblokethey should make it easier for idiots to pick it up
23:27:48dsgAn idiot is someone who is ignorant. Ignorant people don't learn. If someone wants (and tries) to learn, it's not ignorance, therefore not idiocy.
23:28:06dsgAnd in that case I suggest a good book.
23:28:28topblokea book on applying patches with patch?
23:28:42dsgtop_bloke: Uh? No, I was talking about programming.
23:28:50topblokei was talking more about patch
23:29:06dsgNot exactly complicated.
23:29:15topblokeit is for me
23:29:18dsgpatch -p<strip-dir-number> <patch
23:29:48topblokewtf is all that
23:30:00topblokeis there docs for it
23:30:05dsgPlenty of them.

23:30:36topblokeis all i need
23:30:48trackgonna make tea brb
23:31:03dsgIt refers to the number of directories in the beginning of the patch file tree that should be skipped.
23:31:19webminddsg, if irc weren't a place to help people anymore i wouldn't have an excuse to irc at work anymore so.. :)
23:31:21topblokeso 0 i guess
23:31:41dsgSo, say, if the patch would refer to the file rockbox/foo.c, -p0 would mean rockbox/foo.c, -p1 would mean foo.c.
23:32:13dsgYou probably want to go into the rockbox dir and use -p1, but if it's wrong you'll see immediately.
23:32:19dsgwebmind: Heh :)
23:32:49topblokeits doing something
