06:04:58midknight2k3god they need some good coders
06:05:04midknight2k3their products rock
06:05:09midknight2k3but the firmware = teh suck
06:05:37dwihnoDoes the new gmini use some special kind of hard disk?
06:06:47midknight2k3like the Rio Karma
06:07:40dwihnoDamn I love hardware evolution! :D
06:08:15dwihnoNot that there is something "wrong" with 2.5"... :-)
06:08:53*midknight2k3 points at dwinho, 2.5" user
06:09:15dwihnoI got 3 2.5" disks \o/
06:09:45dwihnoI always keep my screwdriver around, just in case I need to switch music collection
06:10:34dwihnoI guess they use some special kind of battery... *sigh*
06:11:34dwihnoWell, as long as you can replace them...
06:11:41midknight2k3you can't
06:12:02dwihnoNot even with the 220?
06:12:12dwihnoDogger: How is the battery performance on the AV units?
06:12:13midknight2k3nope its all proprietary
06:12:51Doggerdwihno: variable
06:12:59DoggerI plan to fix mine soon
06:13:04dwihno"fix"? :)
06:13:10DoggerI have had a 320, and 2 340s
06:13:14Doggerthe first 2 were brill
06:13:20Doggerlasted 8 hours for mp3s,
06:13:25Doggerand about 4 for video
06:13:32Doggerthis one is much less
06:13:39DoggerI dont think the battery is making good contact
06:13:46DoggerI have ordered a spare battery for it as well
06:13:58dwihnoSo the batteries are somewhat replaceable...
06:14:14midknight2k3they give spares
06:14:30dwihnoPerhaps for certain models.
06:15:16dwihnoDogger: where did you order the spare battery?
06:15:38midknight2k3archos i'd guess
06:16:32dwihnoHas there been any notes about Rockbox on the Gmini models?
06:16:39dwihno(in the mailing list)
06:16:40midknight2k3they are working on it
06:16:46midknight2k3i need to speak to the devsx

13:37:16c0uttahey kurzhaarrocker, have you used bagder's strtok_r function before ?
13:37:38kurzhaarrockeryes, heavily
13:38:11c0uttaok. if i have a string "512;1;;75" i would expect:
13:38:33c0uttausing ; as the delimeter
13:38:51kurzhaarrockerI'm not sure about the blank though...
13:39:05*kurzhaarrocker looks into acient code
13:39:07c0uttayeah, i'm getting:
13:39:28c0uttait *sounds* like a bug to me
13:39:37c0uttamaybe it's by design tho..
13:40:04kurzhaarrockerThe thing is that you can specify multiple delimiter characters, which may occur in sequence. Think about whitespace as delimiter.
13:41:07kurzhaarrockerIf you wanted whitespace delimiter you'd want any sequence of tabs and spaces to be _one_ delimiter. So for that task strtok_r works as desired.
13:41:10c0uttai'll be parsing filenames so need whitespace
13:41:31c0uttai suppose tab would work in isolation
13:41:49*c0utta runs a test
13:44:08c0uttanope, tabs don't work in isolation
13:44:27kurzhaarrockersee at man strtok - the behaviour that multiple subsequent delimiters are used as one is defined there.
13:45:06c0uttaat man strtok ?
13:45:31kurzhaarrockerstrtok_r is just a special variant of strtok, the man page is the same
13:45:58kurzhaarrockerIn rockbox only strtok_r is implemented.
13:46:08c0uttaexcuse my ignorance, but what is the "man page" ?
13:46:49kurzhaarrockerthe online help. Type "man strtok" at the command line in linux / cygwin
13:47:19c0uttabash: man: command not found
13:47:39c0uttai don't have a full cygwin
13:48:24kurzhaarrockerCan you receive dcc?
13:48:37c0uttadepends on file type
13:49:05kurzhaarrockerText only
13:49:19c0uttano problem
13:51:05kurzhaarrocker"Trying to establish file transfer"
13:51:14kurzhaarrockerDo you receive anything?
13:52:06c0uttano, just a timeout
13:52:10c0uttaping of .01 though
13:52:25c0uttatry again pls
13:53:04kurzhaarrocker2nd try on the run.
13:53:18kurzhaarrockerI could mail it, if I knew your adress..
13:53:31c0uttadon't worry - i'll work it out
13:53:49c0uttai used /0 in between delimiters
13:56:23kurzhaarrockerDepending on what you want to do \0 might not the best choice though.
13:57:27kurzhaarrockerThe end of strings is indicated by \0 -> eg. strlen("512;1;\0;75") should return 5
13:57:48c0uttano, it caused an error in XP
13:57:57c0uttajust a test to see what would happen
13:58:31c0uttastrtok considers the string s1 to consist of a sequence ofzero ormore
13:58:36c0utta text tokens separated by spans of one or more characters from the
13:58:41c0utta separator string s2
13:58:48c0utta"one or more" is my issue
14:00:29kurzhaarrockerThat's how the behaviour is defined (posix)-> its not a bug. I don't remember wether there is an similiar function that suits your needs better.
14:01:49c0uttai'll use a space to indicate no entry
14:01:55c0utta512;1; ;75
14:03:45c0uttai nearly have my f2 patch working
14:04:08 Join cjnr11 [0] (
14:04:13kurzhaarrocker:) I need that to have quick access for recording
14:04:29c0uttayou'll be able to add it to f2 dynamically
14:04:52*kurzhaarrocker jumps up and down in joy
14:05:50c0uttawhere has recording gone in the current menu system ?
14:05:53c0uttai can't find it ?
14:06:34kurzhaarrockerThere's /Recording/start recording (menu structure)
14:07:07kurzhaarrockerCan you handle increase / decrease of values (eg. bass) in F2 too?
14:07:47c0uttaaha i'm using the sim
14:07:52c0uttano recording available
14:08:26c0uttaregarding bass - what do you want to see ?
14:09:19c0uttayou'll be able to add the "Bass" menu to F2 dynamcially
14:09:43kurzhaarrockerI just imagine some user wants to have quick access to sound (or other) options. He might want to assign F2+left to increase bass and F2+right to decrease bass.
14:10:12dwihnoc0utta: tell me what you're up to.
14:10:33c0utta"up to" as in the current status ?
14:10:36c0uttaor in general ?
14:11:11c0uttasorry to confuse dwihno
14:11:18c0uttadwihno: i'm doing a patch for f2
14:11:22dwihnoWell, what are your plans, and how far have you gotten?
14:11:49c0uttafirstly, i've managed to keep the quickscreens
14:12:03c0uttaf2-left, f2-right, f2-down have not changed
14:12:16kurzhaarrockerc0utta I don't understand about the current status / general thing
14:12:46c0uttakurzhaarrocker: i know. i assume everyone's an aussie
14:13:08kurzhaarrockerc0utta: Are these f2-<other key> combos not assignable as well?
14:13:42c0uttaaccording to the docs, some keys are treated the same
14:13:52c0uttathe max we can have is 3
14:14:07kurzhaarrockeryes, eg f2 + up can't be detected.
14:14:29c0uttaanyway, when you press f2 and release you are presented with the F2 menu
14:14:43kurzhaarrockerjust as it is now?
14:14:59kurzhaarrockeroh, the new user menu I guess?
14:15:09c0uttakurzhaarrocker: yes
14:15:20c0uttathe f2 menu is read from a file
14:15:31c0uttathe one i was parsing with strtok_r
14:16:12kurzhaarrockerCan I assign a user definable action to (e.g) f2+down?
14:16:19c0uttaso f2 is now dynamic based on the file contents
14:16:33c0uttakurzhaarrocker: not yet
14:16:52c0uttabut i'm working on it too. i'd like user definable quick-screens too
14:17:22 Join Nibbler [0] (
14:17:23kurzhaarrockerimoh these user definable quickscreens are even more important than another menu.
14:17:48c0uttai agree. bagder and linus don't want quickscreens tho
14:18:30kurzhaarrockerNeither of them record a lot :)
14:19:18c0uttabut since i have been able to use quickscreens and still get an f2 menu i'm sure i'll convince them
14:19:35kurzhaarrockerI'll support you!
14:19:57c0uttaat the moment, the entries in F2 are menus based upon F1
14:20:33c0uttai currently have shuffle, backlight & volume in my F2 menu
14:20:56c0uttawhen you select them, they work the same as the shuffle, backlight & volume menus in F1
14:21:07c0uttaactually use the same code
14:22:11kurzhaarrockerHave you thought about extending these functionalities so that they can trigger other things too? Just think about the idea of increasing / decreasing sound setting values with button combos, too.
14:22:41c0uttai sure have
14:23:02c0uttamy test of "512;1;;75" was an example
14:23:32c0uttathis uses key 512 (f2), mapped to action 1 (volume), adjust to 75%
14:24:27c0uttayou could also have "512;1;;"
14:24:39c0uttathis would bring up the volume menu
14:25:05kurzhaarrockerDoes that blank trigger the volume menu?
14:25:45c0uttai just added the recording menu to my f2 menu by editing the file
14:25:56c0uttaare you jealous ?

14:29:26c0uttaLinusN: when you hold down F2 with my patch you still see the quickscreen
14:29:35c0uttarelease F2 and the F2 menu displays
14:29:59c0uttabut if you press left/right/down it does the quickscreen action
14:30:33kurzhaarrockerOr is the trouble about the string lengths in the quick screen?
14:30:52c0uttakurzhaarrocker: yes, that's very limiting
14:31:44c0uttalate here guys. gotta go to bed
14:31:53kurzhaarrockersleep tight
14:32:02c0uttahey linus, don't foget my patch :)
14:32:42LinusNthe problem with quick-screens are 1) that they are limited to only a few options and 2) the layout is a nightmare for translations
14:33:09LinusNand 3) they are hard-coded
14:33:40c0uttabut, if we allow them to be user configurable 2
14:33:47c0utta2) will become a real problem
14:33:53kurzhaarrockerre 1) better than no options
14:33:53kurzhaarrockerre 2) so what
14:33:53kurzhaarrockerre 3) let c0outta change that

14:38:18dwihnoLinusN: Is the Xing tag complex?
14:38:35kurzhaarrockerok, but that tag is added after the recording position is calculated.
14:39:01LinusNdwihno: not really, what do you mean?
14:39:27LinusNkurzhaarrocker: yes, but the space is reserved in the file by advancing mp3buf_read
14:39:27dwihnoLinusN: Across several frames or such.
14:39:34dwihnoLinusN: Or is it just a special kind of frame?
14:39:36LinusNdwihno: no, it is a single mp3 frame

14:40:42kurzhaarrockerLinusN may I dcc you a short patch on mpeg.c that shows you my prinicipial attempt to calculate the recording position? It doesn't work and I don't understand why. It should be understandable without applying it, reading is sufficiant.

15:27:11LinusNwould be cool to use my 7-seg display for the frequency :-)
15:28:56midknight2k3where would the peak meter go?
15:29:00midknight2k3i fixed a nasty bug too
15:29:11kurzhaarrockerIn peak meter?
15:29:39midknight2k3"Prerecording 00" is hiding behind the meter if the prerecording is off
15:29:55midknight2k3every button press will make it appear and disappear about a fifth of a second
15:30:10midknight2k3i moved the peak meter and cleared the rect if we aren't prerecording
15:30:15midknight2k3i just don't display it at all.
15:30:20midknight2k3unless we are prerecording
15:30:48kurzhaarrockerThat concerns the fm machine only?
15:31:33CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
15:31:33*kurzhaarrocker is relieved
15:32:31midknight2k3it's not that bad
15:32:31midknight2k3just ugly
15:33:27*midknight2k3 knows linusn is off to try it
15:34:09midknight2k3linus, would you like to see my work in progress?
15:34:43midknight2k3too bad for dcc. i can just email it

19:55:30Zagorthat was committed today, and is therefore only available in the bleeding edge build
19:57:11elinenbeZagor: where is the "delete directory" option... I say you get working on rmdir() <grin>
19:57:49Zagoractually rmdir doesn't exist. removing a dir is no different from removing a file.

20:00:27elinenbeZagor: how hard would it be to implement that in rockbox?
20:00:35gzZagor, ok i thought it's in the daily build already
20:01:19Zagorelinenbe: not hard at all
20:01:57elinenbeZagor: how much would you be willing to do it for $$$ ?
20:02:16elinenbeZagor: I have a crisp $1 bill with your name on it...
20:02:23Zagorneed it that bad?
20:02:45elinenbeZagor: yeah...
20:03:04elinenbehas anyone check out
20:03:46elinenbeI think it would be wild to create a database with that program that will load your songs onto the rockbox, and then you can browse by ID3 database... maybe I will try something like that.
20:04:02Zagoryeah, sounds like a good idea
20:04:03elinenbe : browse by file or ID3
20:04:17elinenbethat actually looks pretty good!
20:04:28Zagorin fact, one idea is to put the whole freedb database on disk and use that
20:05:09elinenbethat's an idea!
20:06:04Zagori think one of the car mp3 players do that
20:06:20Zagorso archos has gone the 1.8" disk route too, finally
20:06:56elinenbeZagor: if you look at the webpage I just sent, and you check out the ARCLibrary portion... it seems like you could get the EXACT same result with a program that just creates playlists and folders based on ID3 tags... then you just change the default folder icons for that "folder" to an "artsists","albums",etc. icons.
20:07:34elinenbeZagor: I think it is the sony car player with a CD player and hard drive in it... that way you do not have to type in all the names on a car player!
20:07:43Zagoryeah. someone made such a script already.
20:07:47elinenbeZagor: however, I think it rips the music to ATRAC
20:07:58elinenbeI'll have to look for that...
20:08:11Zagorno, the one i'm thinking about wasn't a sony. never mind though.
20:08:47elinenbepossibly pioneer then? however, they probably uses the gracenote CDDB database and paid for it instead of the FREE freedb!
20:09:33elinenbeit angers me that I donated time and energy to the gracenote cddb (before it was gracenote and owned by Roxio) and then you had to pay for it... they are charging for other peoples work.
20:11:15Zagorthere's a nice screen on that new gmini
20:13:29elinenbeyeah there is... I would go out a buy a new player in a second if any of them still supported standard rechargable batteries though.
20:14:10elinenbethe digital camera industry has that known... about 50% of the point and shoot cameras are AA rechargables and another 50% are proprietary
20:18:37Zagoryeah. i'm fearing the music player business will dump AAs completely. how many minidisc players use AAs, for instance?
20:24:21elinenbethis is nice:
20:24:39elinenbeexcept what is the deal with these 1.5 gb players?
20:24:52Zagorexactly. way too small
20:25:31Zagorthey exist because someone (hitachi?) recently released a new kind of very-small harddrive with sizes up to 4gig.
20:26:38elinenbeI know... but with a 20 and 40gb hard drive so small already (ipod) is there really any need to go way smaller.
20:27:03elinenbeI would love a device with an ipod size drive but larger screen and AA batteries (with rockbox of course) :D
20:29:22Zagorpersonally i've outgrown the 1.8" disks :-( i need >40gig to carry my collection. and i don't see me going back to "selective carrying" either.
20:29:54elinenbeactually I would like a archos with 2x2.5" disks...
20:30:08elinenbepacked tightly against each other with 4 AA's
20:30:10Zagorhehe, it'd be rather heavy though
20:30:40Zagornow 2 x 1.8", *that'd* be a killer (at least to your wallet ;)
20:31:30elinenbethad be nice... what about the disk in the Rio Karma −− what size is that?
20:32:21Zagori don't know. iirc it's too small for the standard 1.8" disks, but i'm probably wrong.
20:32:25elinenbe20gb in this:
20:32:30elinenbeit is not the standard 1.8"
20:32:51elinenbeof course a 2.5" 80gigger has more capacity in smaller space
20:32:55Zagordefinitely not. nice oen
20:33:14Zagorhitachi makes all kinds of form factors these days!
20:33:37elinenbethe gallery is here:
20:34:52Zagordamn fuzzy images :(
20:35:06Zagorbut i see they are using the portalplayer chip
20:36:16gzwhat about getting the MAS 3509 or 3529, extracting the firmware-rom and reuse it for our mas? Seems like it's the same core using the same features
20:36:31gznow thats probably the reason why they don't want those infos to be spread
20:37:02Zagorgz: i would guess the rom on those is much larger than the ram on our chips
20:37:17elinenbeZagor: what ever happened with the info BlueChip got?
20:37:51gzZagor: might be. but as long as the AAC codec is below 4k-words we could separate & use it stand-alone
20:38:05Zagorit doesn't matter, we have plenty of info from that hungarian site now
20:38:21Zagorgz: go ahead :)
20:38:23gzat least the 35x9f ram-size still is 4kWords
20:38:44gzwell i'm pretty impressed. an in-sillicon scheduler and tons of other special features... phew!
20:39:16gzsad i couldnt find the mas c-compiler, but at least the simulator does assembling
20:39:17elinenbeZagor: what is the hungarian site?
20:39:19 Join Nibbler [0] (
20:39:48elinenbeZagor: also, what was someone on the mailing list talking about when they mentioned a "Icon Driven Interface"?
20:39:49gzbtw you maybe shouldn't ALL leech from that site. in case the notify the traffic it might have not-nice effects
20:40:15Zagorgz: we've got it mirrored now
20:40:38Zagorelinenbe: a hungarian (i think) dsp class, using the MAS as material.
20:41:08elinenbeah nice.. do you think anything will come out of it?
20:41:09gzand the mas got a full-featured DMA interface. maybe it could even trigger the ata-chip itself? HAven't read it throughly, tho, probably isn't possible. but at last the polling wouldn't be needed anymore
20:41:43Zagorelinenbe: yeah, it's got enough info to write mas code. afaik bluechip is looking at it.

20:45:07elinenbeI'll check it out..
20:45:19gzsure that's quite usual - sadly. but at least you can read what it's about. and it doesn't really matter for our task, does it?
20:45:28gzwe have to code asm anyhow
20:45:48trackElinenbe I saw your comment referring to the atadore font
20:46:08elinenbeI agree with Zagor though... we need a fixed font for the system font.
20:46:10trackwell, I agree with you. its easier to read than the sys font
20:46:28Zagorthen load the atadore font
20:46:30trackI can't see how much bigger it is than the sysfont, its just a bold version of it
20:46:34gzbut having read the overview.pdf i'm quite optimistic the mas does have some good power reservers

20:47:50trackHi Guest
20:47:57elinenbeZagor: I quite like the icon interface... it could be nicer done though...
20:48:13Zagoryeah, that was just a mock-up
20:48:34elinenbeit could be nice like a nokia though...
20:48:36Zagorwe need a graphics artist :)
20:48:46elinenbeZagor: and it would be nice in grayscale :D
20:49:06trackWould a greyscale icon interface be possible?
20:49:40trackit must put some strain on the LCD, constantly flashing the pixels to achieve greyscale
20:49:52elinenbean LCD is DESIGNED FOR THAT!
20:49:53Zagorsomeone could try playing with antialiased fonts for starters
20:50:03elinenbeZagor: now, that would be a nice feature...
20:50:09tracki think the screen resolution is too low Zagor
20:50:12trackfor antialiasing
20:50:26track112x64 pixels?
20:50:47Zagorantialiasing has nothing to do with screen size
20:50:51trackoh ox
20:51:07trackI know antialiasing is smoothing out the jaggies on fonts and the like
20:52:08trackI just wondered how it would be achieveable on the archos
20:52:12tracksince you say its possible
20:52:45gzoops the simulator doesnt assemble. sadly. good for debugging but it doesnt feature a binary output
20:53:07trackI read in the paper today MPs are taking Apple on about the iPod
20:53:18Zagorgz: we need to write an assembler anyway
20:54:06gzZagor yep, i know. shit, i'd love to start right away playing with it. but i don't have the time at the moment anyhow
20:54:34Zagorso much code, so little time :)
20:54:45tracku have the knowledge Zagor
20:55:17gzyeah. never coded a dsp before. i really am impressed of the mas! I just had a short look on some other generic one, but this one is way more powerfull
20:55:37trackGz are you saying DSPs effects are possible on the MAS?
20:55:49gztrack, the mas is a DSP
20:56:05tracki mean effects like hall, stadium and the like
20:56:16gzdsp=digital signal processor. You can do really many things with it
20:56:21tracksorry I mis-understood what you said
20:56:24gzif you are able to programm it properly
20:56:35trackI always thought the mas was a hard-coded chip
20:56:39gzand if it got enough memory/power etc.
20:56:43tracknot some sort of flash eeprom chip
20:57:00gztrack, mostly. the mpeg-code is in rom but there is a download-code-to-ram feature
20:57:07trackoh right

20:58:43trackJust put a brand new set of 2100mAh batteries in it but Im not getting much improved playback time
20:59:03trackand thats with backlight off, disk spindown 3 seconds, and disk poweroff on
21:00:12trackWhat does disk-poweroff actually do when activated?
21:01:18trackThe revamped menu structure is much better now Zagor
21:01:20trackless cluttered
21:06:25Zagordisk poweroff physically cuts power to the disk after spindown.
21:06:41Zagorit draws less power then, but in return it takes a bit longer to spin up
21:07:07trackahh ok

22:28:14preludeso rockbox only works on archos right?
22:28:19trackFor the time being yes
22:28:22top_blokeno neo
22:28:30top_blokeor does it
22:28:30preludewhats so great about rockbox?
22:28:34trackIt depends what else Zagor has in mind, after all rockbox is his project
22:28:36top_blokeit owns.
22:30:13trackprelude im taking a shot of the archos now
22:30:30top_blokeoh yea i got a digital camera
22:30:46trackIve got a pic but its slightly blurred prelude
22:30:49top_blokeit takes 2100 AAs but i have no charger
22:31:01top_blokecould i charge em in the archos?
22:31:05trackyea you could
22:31:11top_blokebut only 2
22:31:17trackno u need 4
22:31:21trackshouldn't mix batteries

22:32:12top_blokeplus i couldnt get the batts out of the archos when i tried

22:45:30preludetrack looks like u got a crack on the lcd
22:46:23trackthats just a reflection
22:46:26trackthere is no crack on the LCD
22:47:44 Join oxygen77 [0] (
22:49:11tracki think that reflection was caused by the camera's flash
22:50:58trackyea that pic was a bit rushed prelude
22:51:09Zagortrack: i don't know about the gmini. it depends on who volunteers information and code.
22:51:16trackoh ok. I was just curios
22:51:39trackI think it uses a flash chip like the Multimedia and the AV3xx

22:54:34trackdoes Adiamas still work on Rockbox?
22:55:03trackhaven't seem around for ages
22:55:09Zagori don't know. haven't heard from him in a while.
22:55:34trackWell u must be in close contact with him
22:56:58trackI like to flash my archos but im way too afraid to do it
22:57:06top_blokeya me too
22:57:27trackif it goes wrong your archos is dead since the Archos ROM firmware is flashed over
22:57:49top_blokebut theres the back up?
22:57:52Zagorafaik *nobody* has failed
22:58:09trackIm not sure if my Recorder is flashable since its an early recorder 10
22:59:09top_blokecheck the menu
22:59:24trackok let me turn my Archos on
22:59:24top_blokei think in debug
22:59:33 Nick edx{hw} is now known as edx (
22:59:52trackok im on the Menu screen
23:00:02top_blokeand uh
23:00:18trackok im in debug
23:00:20top_blokeHW info?
23:00:27top_blokei dont know what its called really
23:00:44top_blokejust go to all of em :)
23:00:52trackOh yea Zagor apologies I see what you mean about the Atadore font and the system font
23:03:24tracksuch as in the system debug menus
23:03:54top_blokeu know USB dont work in the debug menus
23:04:12top_blokeit doesnt do anything when plugged in
23:04:36trackI think its designed to do that
23:04:37Zagorthe debug menus have more slack than the rest of the code. after all, they're debug menus... :)
23:04:51top_blokeyeah it says keep out right on it
23:05:15trackZagor I thought the USB was "hardware controlled" so even on the Debug menus the USB would take over if the cable was plugged in
23:05:40top_blokenah cause rockbox has its own usb
23:06:04Zagoryou're both wrong :)
23:06:11trackZagor! Im right!
23:06:35Zagorusb is handled by hardware, but we have to make sure we don't access the disk while usb is connected. and rockbox naturally controls the display
23:06:57trackoh ok Zagor
23:07:01trackyou are the top man
23:07:28top_blokebut you could ignore it if u want to right
23:07:55trackI must admit the normal Recorders are certainly not photogenic
23:08:05top_blokecause the archos didnt show up on the pc when in debug
23:08:43trackI mean they look like breeze blocks on the Archos website, but they are much smaller in real life
23:09:11top_blokearchos is pretty big
23:09:18top_blokecompared to new mp3 players
23:09:24Zagortop_bloke: yeah, we sort of have an usb on/off switch that we must trigger before it will work
23:09:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:09:31trackThey claim their new Gmini 220 is smaller than a floppy
23:09:33top_blokeok cool
23:10:01top_blokemy bro has a zen and he was shocked how heavy my archos is
23:10:11trackyet it packs a 20 gigger drive
23:10:31trackBut at least the rubber corners make the Archos more rugged
23:10:51top_blokehe THREW his zen against the wall
23:11:06top_blokecause the headphones were dying out on 1 side
23:11:12top_blokeleft a DENT in the wall
23:11:15top_blokeand it works fine
23:11:19top_blokehes nuts
23:11:33tracku do that with an ipod it will smash into bits
23:11:50top_blokei wouldnt think a zen would survive it
23:12:04tracknah ipods are a waste of money
23:12:19top_bloketheyre sleek
23:12:23top_blokeand so is the zen
23:12:46trackThe normal Recorder is stylish in its own way
23:13:28MTif you get mugged tho, you cant fight anyone off with a zen or an ipod
23:13:35tracki agree MT
23:13:36MTan archos you can do some serious damage with tho
23:13:49top_blokebut then it'd be broken :(
23:14:00MTthe reason you cant drop an archos is it might break the flooring slabs
23:14:05trackIve noticed the Player never gets a mention anymore :(
23:14:33top_blokeyeah the archos weighs like a pound
23:14:35trackno-one likes the poor old Player :-(
23:15:17trackThey still sell it on the website though
23:15:22trackZagor do you like the Player?
23:15:26top_blokearchos website?
23:15:39trackyea on the Archos webby
23:15:58top_blokei would have thought they forgot about it
23:16:13trackthey still sell it
23:16:16top_blokethey dont make it anymore right
23:16:26trackIve noticed that Rockbox is the only website that doesn't start with www
23:16:27MThmm, advancedmp3players have the xclef back in stock
23:16:34tracki.e not
23:16:41MTmy website doesnt start with www
23:16:43MTlots dont
23:16:46top_blokeu can put www
23:16:49top_blokecant u
23:16:51trackthats new to me doesnt
23:17:11top_blokei thought these days www is optional
23:17:24trackmaybe it is
23:17:52MTits neither
23:18:03trackoh ok
23:18:16trackI must admit 2x11 character cells is just useless
23:18:27MTa webserver can listen to any ip, regardless of what domain names that ip has assigned to it
23:19:42trackThe Play button on my Recorder is rather wonky
