#rockbox log for 2006-12-02

00:00:01Bagderwhen you "fix" it I mean
00:00:13mick_homei'd create the skin,a n set it up on a server
00:00:35mick_homenot the hosting part, sorry
00:00:52mick_homebandwidth is precious when you already have 10,000 downlaods a day
00:01:05Bagdera _day_ ?
00:01:44Bagderas in 3.6 million per year?
00:02:01*Soap suspects monkey porn. Everybody loves monkeys.
00:03:22 Quit TeaSea (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:03:25BagderI can only boast 1 million per year
00:03:44mick_homeBagder: yes, those are the stats
00:03:55 Join TeaSea [0] (n=thunderc@
00:03:58mick_homewe have over 3 million d/ls (but that stat is old)
00:04:15mick_homelet me find the sf stats
00:04:30Bagdersf? then you don't host it yourself...
00:04:40mick_homethe site we do,
00:04:48Bagder"bandwidth is precious when you already have 10,000 downlaods a day"
00:05:11Bagderthen how can sf count the downloads?
00:05:28mick_homewe have two servers doing load balancing to sustain things like new releases
00:05:32 Quit funky ("Lost terminal")
00:06:05mick_homei have cms stats too - they match the sf ones
00:06:36BagderI'm still curious how sf counts the downloads?
00:06:53Bagderdon't they only count downloads off their servers?
00:07:04mick_homeProject Web Hits and such match what we have
00:07:17mick_homeBagder: no idea really :)
00:08:05Bagderthe download link points to...
00:08:14mick_homeBagder: funny thing is how big of a userbase we have and we have a tiny channel :D
00:09:03mick_homeBagder: yes, we chouldn't handle that w/o mirrors (currently the images and such are already big enough to cause us needing 2 servers) :-/
00:09:47mick_homebut at any rate, i'll set it up if you have the bandwidth
00:09:54mick_homewe got really OT there for a sec ;)

00:11:49SoapIf you feel MediaWiki is not only superior, but also easier - the best thing to do would be set up a demo fork and let the decision makers play on it.
00:12:05SoapWon't take much bandwidth as you don't need to make the address public.
00:12:33habanadamned, just finished to build the latest version before i realize that my USB wire stayed at work ...
00:12:41 Join My_Sic [0] (
00:12:42SoapBut I, personally, believe such effort is better spent on content over delivery method.
00:13:11Bagderto me, the diff between the wikis aren't big enough to bother about
00:13:13mick_homeSoap: at any rate an overhaul is needed
00:13:24Soapyou keep using that word.
00:13:27mick_homehow many visually impared peopl use rb?
00:13:38Soapmore than enough.
00:13:42Bagdermick_home: quite a few
00:13:55mick_homethen they should be taken into consideration, or?
00:14:29Bagderwe haven't seen any complaints on the web site from those
00:14:38Bagderthat I can recall at least
00:14:42habanamick_home: aren't they ? its there a compatibility trouble ?
00:14:42mick_homei mean not only w/ 508 compliance but w/ content too ImSureThatThisCan'tBeEasyToReadWithAscreenReader
00:14:51Soapmore than enough that it can be said that Wiki complaints aren't rolling in like <insert witty analogy here>
00:15:33mick_homebut i may be wrong
00:16:01Bagderwe have a large blind and otherwise visually impaired user base
00:16:03mick_homeif someone visually impaired could try it then I'd like to actually hear from them (as i could stand correctedDD)
00:16:40mick_homei (as a non visually impared person) find those things difficult to read
00:16:55SoapIf media wiki is so easy, how about porting a wiki fork for the admins to play with?
00:17:01mick_homenot *that* difficult, but enough to grab an asperin
00:17:29mick_homeSoap: i may, but i want to mess w/ Desktop Tools
00:17:42mick_homeonce i'm done, i'd be more than happy to
00:18:04mick_homei think a good UI tool will have priority over this ;)
00:18:12habanamick_home: ive been told that if a website is easily readable with lynx navigator (text mode based), its good for blind people
00:18:43mick_homehabana: that is assuming that youdon'thavearunonsentencelikethis
00:19:08Bagderbut we don't
00:19:29mick_homeand it is more like, if it passes section 500 - then it is most likely accessable or damn close to it
00:19:34Bagderthey're only wiki names, they're not whole sentences
00:19:42mick_homeBagder: oh? isn't that how the wiki works :-P
00:21:00mick_homeumm, ok "your welcome" −−not sure what for :)
00:21:15mick_homenp ;)
00:21:30mick_homemaybe someone in #accessability could answer that
00:21:42mick_homeas it may not even be a problem (and i just may be wrong)
00:21:52mick_homeyes, even i may be wrong at times ;)
00:22:16*petur wonders if JdGordon's commit of 8 november broke settings saving somehow

00:26:45mick_homewhich the wiki fails
00:27:31rasherI haven't seen a single complaint on the mailing list about the wiki
00:27:49rasherAnd there are quite a lot of blind users (the voice ui is a major feature)
00:28:21mick_homegood, then i can skip that part and concentrate on the Desktop stuff
00:29:04rasherI would think so. I believe you're the first person to really express dislike for twiki
00:29:28rasherOther than "oh, this is not what I'm used to"
00:29:50mick_homehmm, interesting
00:29:53*Bagder pointed at wikiepedia => usability warnings overflow
00:30:05Bagderi.e it is not a software thing
00:30:15mick_homeok, i guess since i'm the only one - so i definitely will stop w/ that one
00:30:21Bagderto maximize that, you need to take care when you edit pages
00:30:42mick_homeBagder: pardon?
00:30:50 Quit lee-qid ("aufwiederbyebientotsayonara")
00:30:56mick_homewhat do you mean? can you elaborate?
00:31:00BagderAccessibility doesn't come with your flavour of wiki
00:31:16Bagderno matter what type, you can screw up or do good
00:31:18mick_homemediawiki? i just saw :)
00:31:27mick_home passes
00:31:36mick_home fails ;)
00:32:19mick_homei'll see i it is something that i need to look into or not
00:32:20rasherI think unless we're going for a US government grant, "no complaints ever" is good enough to not worry about 508
00:32:41mick_homei guess youa re right
00:32:54mick_homeit is about the only thing that i can do personally to test
00:33:06mick_homescreen readers are expensive :-(
00:33:16Bagderwatchfire found numerous warnings in your front page wiki
00:33:21mick_homeso automated testing is the only way i can go
00:33:39mick_homeBagder: that is what i said, it fails ;)
00:33:54mick_homei concentrated so much on the frontpage w/o thinking about the wiki
00:34:13mick_homebut end users don't use our wiki
00:34:20mick_homeit is more for developers
00:34:29mick_homeso whatever - if it comes up i'll fix it
00:34:52mick_homeand since you guys have no complains, moving on ... nothing to see here ;)

01:13:30donosit was a bit ugly, but the jBlackGlass theme fixed that up nicely, and i've been showing it off all day ;)

04:48:47odlahi i am syncing my ipod with gtkpod and when i add music to it i can't see it on my ipod after i disconnect i need to update my rockbox before it sees the additions? i know they are really there cause i can see them when i reconnect my ipod
04:49:20dj-fuwhy use gtkpod with rockbox/
04:49:22dj-futhat's a silly idea
04:49:35odlawhy? what else should i use?
04:49:44dj-funautilus? `cp`?
04:49:57dj-furockbox is drag'n'drop file storage
04:50:04odlano shit? really?
04:50:07dj-fustraight up
04:50:14dj-futhat's half the point, to not rely on gay shit like itunes
04:50:54odlawhere do i drag the music to?
04:51:07dj-fuanywhere, lol
04:51:21dj-fuI usually put it in \Music\Artist\Album\
04:51:29dj-fupersonal preference though )
04:51:46odlaright now stuff is all broken up in iPod_Control Music
04:51:56odlaso i can delete that and start adding my music by dragging?
04:52:11dj-futhen just use the file browser on your ipod w/ rockbox to find the folder
04:52:14dj-fuor generate a playlist
04:52:19dj-fuor enable tagcache and use the id3 tag browser
04:52:30odlawell rockbox really is fucking cool
04:52:37dj-fuaye, tis
04:52:59dj-fuwhat sold me was drag'n'drop support. beats the crap out of itunes or plugins for other players
04:53:08dj-fuonly unfortunate ting is players that detect iPods freak out on it

05:39:37mick_linuxReason that my email bounced: Blacklisted site `[]' [Irritated]
05:40:03zylcheanonymous email websites + proxy = anonymous email websites
05:40:14zylche[they usually add ip to bottom, lets not even talk about headers]
05:40:22mick_linuxanonymous email websites? is my ISP's SMTP server, which they require me to use. (using another is against the TOS and I can get my service revoked)
05:41:48mick_linuxso stupid spam filters don't work w/ stupid ISPs :-P
05:42:15mick_linuxi can also not email the selenium ide mailing list (or admins for that matter)

05:43:43zylcheyour isp forces you to use their email, or they'll not allow you internet access?
05:43:59mick_linuxit is to "prevent spam" ;)
05:44:22mick_linuxand i'm serious too
05:44:39mick_linuxstupid people + policies just don't mix

09:06:49moshany improvements made with battery use + ipod recently?
09:07:38scorchemosh: there is a changelog on the front page for a reason ;)
09:07:42moshi have a 5g
09:07:54moshhaven't checked in for months :/
09:08:20scorchewell, luckily there are links that will even take you back to the 2.5 release
09:08:35scorcheright above the commit log
09:12:10moshreading through all changes has been a nightmare for me, i never find what i am looking for most goes over my head, wish it wasn't this way but it is...
09:14:01moshi wish there was a script that went through my collection and automaticly grabbed the bmp files for covers correct size and everything, doing it by hand for a big collection has got to suck..
09:18:18rasherThere is not.
09:18:23rasherThere is about 800 of such scripts
09:18:38rasherEach worse than the other
09:18:54moshi started by hand already anyway
09:19:54rasherI ended up writing something by hand that used perl amazon bindings and downloaded every cover it could find, so I had to delete everything I didn't want
09:19:56 Join RoC_MM [0] (
09:20:04moshwhere have you found the best place to get cover bmps?
09:20:06rasherBut that worked out okay for me
09:20:11rasherAmazon and wikipedia
09:20:32rasherIt all depends on your collection of course
09:20:37moshamazon gives jpg, at least firefox saves it that way
09:20:50rasheroh, bmps, well that can be mass-converted later
09:20:59rasherI shouldn't hope any place delivered BMP covers
09:27:37thegeek_imho the best solution is using foobar2000 + run plugin + coverdownloader from hydrogenaudio forums
09:28:05thegeek_if your albums are properly tagged you just rightclick on a song in the album, run coverdownloader and then doubleclick on the the cover that is best, and it is automatically saved
09:28:27thegeek_I've tried a lot of different programs for downloading covers, this works best for me
09:29:36thegeek_coverdownloader also handles a lot of different sites, all handles by python scripts
09:29:42thegeek_so you could even write your own extensions
09:30:26thegeek_amazon, walmart and itunes are the best though

09:33:12nave7693windows is the best XP
09:33:48thegeek_I wish I had the time to switch to linux as my desktop
09:34:24thegeek_just takes too much time to learn everything again
09:34:59nave7693you didn't think it comes for free right?
09:35:22thegeek_ofcourse not
09:35:26thegeek_that's my entire point
09:35:33thegeek_it's not worth it
09:35:55thegeek_I use linux on my laptop and my servers
09:36:01nave7693well then I guess you are making my point
09:36:12thegeek_no I'm not
09:36:24nave7693then you have already spent the time to learn it
09:36:44thegeek_I know it, just not as well as my windows desktop
09:37:33nave7693just for the desktop, you are better off with windows anyway
09:38:12thegeek_If I were to switch to linux as my desktop fulltime I'd have to redo all the tricks and knowledge I already have
09:38:59nave7693imo some of your tricks or knowledge will never be applicable
09:39:10thegeek_that's my point
09:39:17thegeek_I'd have to redo it all

09:39:32thegeek_custom everything I use for my desktop
09:39:43thegeek_having to redo it all is just too much work
09:39:45thegeek_not worth it
09:39:48nave7693I'd like to see you custom an itunes, or WMP
09:39:57nave7693just for starters
09:40:03thegeek_itunes and wmp suck
09:40:28nave7693well then what do you use with your windows desktop?
09:40:30thegeek_linux has way superior programs, amarok for example
09:40:35thegeek_I use foobar2000
09:40:39thegeek_with my own custom setup
09:40:58thegeek_for my shell I use litestep with my own theme and custom plugins
09:41:21thegeek_almost all programs I use I've customized and changed to work just how I want it;P
09:41:29nave7693ok then
09:41:52thegeek_modular shell

11:39:17petursomething's weird with settings saving
11:39:41peturwhen changing a setting and shutting down within the menu it won't save to disk
11:39:42amiconnHrrrm, FLAC is clearly less efficient compression-wise than I hoped... :(

11:40:16hcsI am just now learning the exact same thing
11:40:41JdGordonpetur: shutting down while your in the menu? um... i guess its because it doesnt register to save untill exiting the menus, so it makes sence
11:40:44JdGordonrasher: oh ok
11:40:46amiconnAlmost everything I throw at it ends up at 60..70% original size
11:40:48rasherJdGordon: Submissions don't appear instantly - which is explained when you submit
11:41:10peturand I don't know how dircache saves its state but richt now it always gives me a Scanning splash and Moos says this should only happen the first boot
11:41:16amiconnThat is with flac -8 of course

11:59:06jbahehe, true that

11:59:41peturweird... dircache_load() is only called if HAVE_EEPROM_SETTINGS is defined? Or do I miss something?
12:00:16rasherJdGordon: But isn't it because there's little/no room in the config block?

12:08:45JdGordonthe full path for the wps is saved t the .cfg file. if the path is fixed this isnt needed?

12:09:25rashern1s: Well, I hate buggy code..
12:10:54rashern1s: The weirdest part is why your location got truncated in the first place. It happens randomly that all submissions during a 4-5 hour period are truncated to ints, after that, I get proper submissions again.
12:11:31n1sso it's a "fun" bug :-)
12:11:50amiconnJdGordon: Well, config files can set values which aren't stored permanently, so I guess it makes sense
12:12:35amiconnSome questions arise:
12:12:46JdGordonyeah, full path is saved currently, I'd be happy to break that
12:12:52amiconn(1) Which is better, storing the file without path in global_settings and let every module concatenate path & filename, or store the full path in ram as well?
12:12:57JdGordonbut I can do it in a way to make it sort of work
12:13:23amiconn(2) Do we want to keep the feature that everything outside the standard dirs is temporary?

12:19:28*amiconn tries to find out how important that feature is...
12:19:30peturit happened after I disabled it and then re-enabled. It was working fine before that I think
12:19:34rasherwell, not so easy to overflow it then.. Just.. pretty limiting
12:19:37linuxstbWell, reducing the size of paths stored in RAM is a good reason to keep the limit, so I don't mind either way.
12:19:41JdGordonrasher: actually.. not really
12:19:45Slasheribut can't fix it until next week because i forget the apple usb cable in work place
12:20:24Slasheripetur: but if you could find the problem, please fix it :)
12:20:25peturI was having a peek but I'm new to the code and now real-life ended my trial anyway :/
12:20:29amiconnOne important point is that .cfg files used to store full path, which should be kept that way imho
12:20:30JdGordonits either increase of RAM by about 2kb or increase of bin size for the special cases
12:20:33linuxstbSlasheri: Buy yourself a cheap dock to keep at home...
12:20:38peturmaybe later today
12:20:48amiconnBut now we're using a .cfg file for the bootup config as well, which implies loading the full path
12:20:52*JdGordon is happy eother way
12:20:52Slasherilinuxstb: yeah, i need to buy a second cable at least..
12:21:01Slasherinow it's pain to always carry the cable with
12:21:01*petur runs off again for duties...
12:21:18amiconn...because the bootup .cfg shouldn't be any more special apart from its name
12:21:44JdGordonfine.. full path it is
12:22:00amiconnIn .cfg, definitely.
12:22:09amiconnThe question is what to do in RAM
12:22:17amiconnHow many such paths do we mave?
12:22:20JdGordontoss a coin?
12:22:26JdGordon7 worse case
12:22:28linuxstbWhy do we need the full path in the .cfg, if it's relative to a hard-coded path?
12:22:29amiconn(Most important on the low-ram targets)
12:23:03amiconnlinuxstb: .cfg isn't relative to hard-coded path

12:24:08JdGordonyes, and what will happen is a possibly non-existant filename will be saved to the cfg file
12:24:16JdGordonwhich means no wps next load
12:24:41amiconnThen rockbox will fall back to the built-in default
12:24:57JdGordonyeah... thats what i meant by none
12:25:08amiconnI tend to think that storing the full path internally would be better, even if it costs RAM :/
12:25:48amiconnIt would make it easier to fall back to the previous file if the new one fails (e.g. for backdrop)
12:25:51JdGordonbin usage would be about 40bytes extra for each setting if we want t keep ram usage donw
12:26:06JdGordon+ code to handle it
12:26:30JdGordonactually, less than 40bytes..
12:26:36amiconn...which isn't possible with the current solution. Now rb cannot fall back if the previous background was temporary

12:30:34amiconnLive settings is a must
12:31:25pixelmaalso the default display contrast for Ondio (probably other Archoses) is much too high (set to 40 - while I turn it to 29/30) and somehow changing it only moved the tick
12:32:11pixelma(I run the build with Rolo though - shouldn't make a difference but maybe it does?)
12:32:18JdGordonits useing the DEFAULT_CONTRAST_SETTING define.. so maybe thats too high...
12:32:29amiconnProbably the new settings code doesn't properly ask the lcd driver for the default contrast
12:32:55amiconnJdGordon: The default contrast on archos isn't fixed, it can be one of 2 values depending on hardware version
12:33:29pixelmaJdGordon: but changing has no visible effect - only the tick moves, the contrast doesn't get changed
12:34:16amiconnI wonder why you don't compare to how existing code works.... it's not the first time... :/

12:34:28JdGordondoes the contrsat setting have a callback?
12:34:39JdGordonamiconn: last conut there was 180 odd settings, i cant check every one
12:34:46JdGordonespecially when i dont have every target
12:35:08JdGordonthis is why im here asking for help...
12:35:28 Join Rob2222 [0] (
12:36:34pixelmaah... JdGordon: when I leave the settings menu it gets changed - another disadvantage of the settings not being live I guess
12:36:57JdGordonpixelma: can you try changing the second NULL to lcd_set_contrast in settins_list.c line 186?
12:37:07JdGordonthat shuold make it work when you move the tick
12:39:18pixelmahmm... if this was also the flyspray task I commented on I had those problems in other settings to - I'll try sound setting and so on first
12:39:48*JdGordon hasnt had any emails from flyspray on that patch since yesterday
12:39:59pixelmait's been a while
12:40:09JdGordonthen its a diffrent one...
12:41:46amiconnJdGordon: For the default contrast, you need to call lcd_default_contrast()
12:42:00amiconnOn archos this returns either 49 or 31 depending on hw version
12:42:18JdGordoncant really do that with this code...
12:42:28JdGordonsplit the diff and go 37?
12:44:26pixelmaah.. sound setting are updated live...
12:45:18JdGordonso he general consensus is store full path in RAM ?
12:45:21pixelmasorry for the false alarm (maybe I mixed it in my mind with the other patch because of the "ticks")
12:45:44JdGordonbut i tihnk alot of the settings are not live
12:46:18JdGordonand stuff which need a function call wont happen untill exiting the menu until they are noticed and fixed, like contrast
12:46:37amiconnJdGordon: I wonder why... iirc this isn't the only setting with a dynamic default.
12:47:01JdGordonbecause it never even occured to me?
12:47:06JdGordonwhich others have?
12:47:09amiconnYou can't simply choose the average. 40 is way too dark on newer units (where the default would be 31), and way too bright on older units
12:47:23amiconnThat's why there is that funtction
12:48:14 Quit bluey- ("Leaving")
12:48:16JdGordonok, if the functio pointer is type cast to an int then it can be handled fine
12:48:38JdGordonstill got 20 odd bits of the flag int spare
12:48:39amiconnAll sound settings for instance...
12:48:53JdGordonsound is fine because thats handled with special code for all of them
12:49:06JdGordonthis adds theneed for obscure cases
12:49:24amiconnglobal_settings.volume = sound_default(SOUND_VOLUME);
12:50:02JdGordonint flags; /* ____ ____ ____ ____ TFRV SRTS HRSC STTT */ <- need a better way to visualise this int :p
12:50:17pixelmaJdGordon: otherwise the patch seems to be ok - settings got stored and loaded correctly when I rebooted and rolo'ed in again
12:50:26JdGordonyay :)
12:50:38JdGordoncan you run it for a few dyas and let me know if anythin else is funny?
12:50:41amiconnBtw, RoLo needs to be split in high-level and low-level part
12:50:44pixelmawill test a bit further though ;)
12:50:48amiconnThe current implementation is dirty
12:51:14amiconnJdGordon: What would the patch store in rtc ram?
12:51:24JdGordonI dont know
12:51:34JdGordonanything thatneeds to be set before reading from disk
12:51:42amiconnImho the rtc ram should only store the most volatile values, in order to save the need for a spinup on powerdown
12:52:17pixelmaJdGordon: I will - should I also try the code change in settings_list.c or are you going to rewrite anyway?
12:52:22amiconnOh, and those values as well. Only applies to car adapter mode afair
12:52:35JdGordonpixelma: ill put a new patch up in a little while
12:52:51amiconnJdGordon: The volatile values are the two runtime values (current and top) and the resume position
12:54:59amiconnHow are these values saved now for targets without non-volatile memory?
12:55:06JdGordonto disk
12:55:12JdGordonthey will be stored to both
12:55:23JdGordonatm nothing has the rtc flag set
12:55:51amiconnTo disk? In what form? Separate binary file?
12:55:59JdGordonno, in the cfg file
12:56:34amiconnThe patch saves the whole .cfg on every spinup then? Not good imo...
12:56:57JdGordonwhats the difference? it doesnt ever spin it up espeaiclly to save
12:57:16JdGordonthere is provisions to only save certain settings to a seperate .cfg file
12:57:51amiconnNo, but it saves the _whole_ .cfg which can be huge and is rather complex, on every spinup
12:58:14amiconnTargets w/o non-volatile memory should save those settings into a separate _binary_ file
12:58:46JdGordonso when do you do a ful save? just shutdown?
12:58:59amiconnNo, on shutdown or config change it is now
12:59:20JdGordondo settings need to be flushed at all then?
12:59:24amiconnBut the volatile values don't trigger a main config save, only a binary settings save
12:59:43amiconnJdGordon: Yes. Battery might run out before shutdown
12:59:56 Join wooo [0] (
13:01:03amiconnI don't see these values as "rtc settings" but rather as special "binary settings" which need to be handled specially (saved often, needed before ata init, or other)
13:01:57amiconnThis doesn't only apply to targets with rtc ram, but to all others, independent of whether they have non-volatile memory (H1x0 eeprom comes to mind) or not (then it's a separate binary file)
13:02:31JdGordonthere is a flag for sytem settings which could happily go into a seperate .cfg or bin file, and a flag for rtc, both can be used together... its just a mattr of whch flags to use for each setting

13:46:44peturSlasheri: seems the dircache behaviour is by design: it always scans in the foreground because dircache_initialized is only set when either loaded from disk or done a rebuild. And the rebuild is done in main directly, not by posting a message to the dircache queue (which is what I would have expected).
13:47:37amiconnIirc dircache once scanned in the background when the expected cache size was known
13:47:54amiconnThat's another candidate for binary settings...

22:12:02vanbergeBagder, so are you one of the devs?
22:12:13BagderI am, yes
22:12:32BagderI've been on this since the start actually
22:13:31vanbergewell, i wanted to come on here and pay my respects. i loaded it onto my ipod about a week ago and i love it.
22:13:55vanbergei struggled with ipl for a long time... was never really happy with the product.
22:14:54Bagderyes, well we have quite different focus and goals I think
22:15:41vanbergedifferent maybe - but also similar - put an alternative OS onto a music player.
22:15:51Bagderyes, sure
22:16:38vanbergeyou guys ever need assistance?

23:46:10dshierwhy is the battery life on the ipod so low
23:46:22Ribs'cos rockbox doesn't use both CPUs yet
23:46:39Ribsso it uses the one CPU at fuller capacity than what it normally uses
23:46:39Kasperlethat's not the reason i'd say ;)
23:46:45Ribsthus, more power usage
23:46:56Ribsthat's my guess, Kasperle
23:46:57dshierkasperle what do you think
23:46:59Kasperlebut i know nothing ;)
23:47:07Ribsif you know better, please enlighten us :)
23:47:21Kasperlei think that rockbox simply does not support all the power management features the hardware supports
23:47:21dshierwhen is rockbox going to utilize that second CPU
23:47:35Ribsdshier, work has already started
23:47:42RibsI think some framework is there already
23:47:49dshierso is are the dailybuilds battery life any good
23:47:53Ribsbut I have no idea what kind of priority that thing is
23:48:26dshiero ok
