00:04:59stripwaxHow about "Build is not complete and may not work and/or may have missing standard features, are you sure you want to continue?"

00:05:46gevaertsBasically, but I really want some details about what's actually missing in that message
00:07:02Lloreangevaerts: Maybe a link to a page unique for that build describing its missing "normal" features
00:07:20 Join MarcGuay [0] (
00:08:19gevaertsLlorean: for full details, sure. But if it's just "You need an SD card", or "You need to reboot to the OF for file transfer" I think the dialog is big enough. It's not as if these limitations change often anyway
00:08:57Lloreangevaerts: But on a full page we could then expand the consequences of that limitation, and what not to file bug reports about.
00:09:29LloreanMaybe "You need an SD card. [Why?]" with that being the link.

00:26:54shotofaddsHaving read the last half hour's log, I'm pretty much in agreement with those last comments. A Not-Quite-Supported section with suitable warnings (both on the website and rbUtil) sounds like a good point to aim for, if and when we ever reach that stage.
00:27:43shotofaddsLlorean: for clarification, I created that To Do list so that anyone coming along would know which areas to have a look at, not as any kind of ambitions of being a supported target...

To me they don't really make sense and i'm experiencing a problem since that revision: when no charger is connected to my H300 and the sleep timer reaches zero then the device doesn't shut down anymore, only music stops and the screen turns off. this behaviour should only happen when a charger is connected.

04:11:27JdGordonguest67: can you compile your own builds?
04:12:29guest67could you also have a look at the #if line? it looks like normal variables are used in there. and there is no code between the #if and #endif.

05:31:22JdGordonjust dont unplug it if it is says writing
05:33:17donsdlIt said "writing" when I plugged it in last night, and said "writing" this morning. I used it today and when I plugged it in this evening a couple of hours ago, it said "writing" and it still does.
05:34:44LloreanFrankly, the message "Writing" is something that occurs due to the communication between the original firmware and your PC's operating system.

05:36:50donsdlJdGordon: Ah, as in the "Safely Remove Hardware" in Windows? I always do that.
05:36:54Lloreandonsdl: The OF can be just as buggy as it likes, though.
05:37:14saratogai'd expect val = val*-1 and val = 0-val to both give the same assembly code since arm has an op for negation
05:37:37donsdlI've had the Sansa for about a year. I don't think it has done that in the past.
05:37:59saratogaif you're not actually writing what the sansa screen says is irrelevent
05:38:15donsdlBut I will not worry since it played fine today.
05:38:31saratogadon't know how coldfire handles those things
05:38:31donsdlThanks for the help, guys.
05:40:35Lloreansaratoga: I would assume if the compiler simplifies them both down to the appropriate op on ARM, it'll hopefully pick the most appropriate method on coldfire too

10:24:22timonatorhello folks
10:24:25gevaertspondlife: a few days before devcon amiconn noticed flacs getting cut off as well
10:24:47timonatori think i just bricked this ipod nano here, it won't boot up any more at all, what can i do to check its status and/or (hopefully) revive it?
10:24:56pondlifeSo maybe it's a general PCM flushing issue?
10:25:06pondlifeSeems ok on the sim, but not on H300
10:25:19gevaertstimonator: if it doesn nothing at all, the recommended way is to let it charge for a very lon time first (a full day)
10:25:55timonatorbut its battery was _full_
10:26:22timonatorit said 8 and a half hours of battery life left
10:26:36GodEaternevertheless, this is the advice we give
10:26:49gevaertsYou can try the hard reset procedure first (can't remember the key combination off-hand though)
10:27:05pondlifeToggle hold, then hold MENU+SELECT for ages
10:27:15timonatorwhat does hard reset do? is it just a "reboot" like thing?
10:27:30timonatorok. toggle lock so it showd red, right?
10:27:36*pondlife will let GodEater advise further as he actually has an iPod...
10:27:38gevaertsNo, on and off again
10:27:55timonatorah, great
10:28:01timonatorit came back to life, thanks!
10:28:21GodEateronce again, another "bricked" ipod =/
10:28:30gevaertsOK, then it was probably stuck with backlight off
10:28:48timonatorwill it show absolutely nothing when the backlight is off?
10:28:51*pondlife would offer someone with a bricked iPod a couple of quid for it...
10:29:03GodEaterme too - shame there's pretty much no such thing
10:29:10timonatorhah, ok
10:29:15gevaertstimonator: try it. Wait until the backlight turns off, and try to read the screen
10:29:18pondlifeShh, stop telling them that, or I'll never get my bargain.
10:29:54gevaertspondlife: there was someone with a bricked ipod nano a few months ago. ATA transfers with one stuck bit
10:30:04pixelmagevaerts: the Nano's (and other colour Ipods') display is quite readable without backlight
10:30:10pondlifeWooh, sounds hardware-y
10:30:14GodEaterthat was cured with a "pull out the battery" and refit it
10:30:14gevaertsah, ok
10:30:25GodEateri.e. still not bricked
10:30:27timonatorgevaerts: when it does that i can easily read it
10:30:39timonatoror does the apple firmware (which is currently running) not turn it off?
10:30:48gevaertstimonator: ok, then I was wrong. No idea where it got stuck then
10:31:11*gevaerts doesn't have a nano
10:36:48*pondlife has a broken(?) Nano - need to work out how to open it to remove the battery
10:37:02pondlifeIt just whistles when I attempt to charge it, so not sounding good
10:37:14timonatorso, when i have the nano plugged in into my linux box it says "please don't disconnect", even if i unmount the device, is is still OK to remove the ipod once all stuff was written to its disk?
10:37:20pondlifeThe backlight comes on, but no other sign of life
10:37:49 Quit webmind (Remote closed the connection)
10:38:47GodEatertimonator: you need to "eject" it too
10:39:06GodEaterpondlife: ipod battery replacement kits usually come with a couple of tools for opening ipods
10:39:12GodEaterI have some lying around here for example
10:39:20GodEaterit's still a bloody fiddly job though
10:39:29pondlifeI don't think it'll be fixable, so don't plan to spend cash on it.
10:39:33timonatoroh, i'll try that, didn't think of it at all, haha
10:39:56GodEaterwell bring it alone to the next devconpub
10:39:59GodEaterand I'll bring the tools
10:40:01GodEaterand we can have a go
10:40:06pondlifeI suspect it's got a blown capacitor or something... the high-pitched whistle is very loud
10:40:10timonatorbring it alone, no cops
10:40:44pondlifeSounds like a good reason to organise another DevConPub though ;)

13:34:51Strife89Anyway, I used the script to install the necessary components for cross compiling for ARM targets.......
13:35:23Strife89And then I lost my network connection.
13:35:43B4gdermcuelenaere: I'm not sure you noticed, but I posted about your progress on my blog to get you some further attention
13:35:46Strife89No amount of reboots would restore it (Wi-Fi G)

13:41:17Strife89But I'm wondering if the script's operations may have changed something related to my network connections.
13:42:06Strife89I haven't reset the router yet. (I'll try it when my brother wakes up; my Linux bot is in our room.)
13:42:09B4gdernot likely, no
13:42:22B4gderit installs stuff in the prefix the script says
13:42:32B4gderwhich is /usr/local/[arch]-lef/ by default
13:42:37B4gderelf even
13:42:55B4gderpossibly it filled your disk or similar
13:43:12Strife89I've got 3.2 GB free at last count.
13:43:16GodEateror pushed you over the limit your ISP imposes on your downloads
13:43:42Strife89If that were the case, I couldn't be logged on IRC right now.
13:44:10GodEaterthe only thing does is download files, and then extract them, and then compile their contents
13:44:12timonatori used rbutil to "Create Voice file", does it also install it on the player? when clicking "Install Voice file" it tries to download one from the website :/
13:44:19GodEaterit does not fiddle with your network settings at all
13:45:01Strife89The odd thing is that my computer showed that I had a network connection, but Firefox and Pidgin simply could not connect. I couldn't browse any shared folders on our local network, either.
13:45:42Strife89But the problem exposed itself during the installation, so I can't help but think that it's related. :(
13:46:35GodEaterso what network connection are you currently talking to us over then?
13:46:37B4gderStrife89: you can easily check out the script and see for yourself that the timing must've been a coincidence
13:46:38*GodEater is confused
13:47:01Strife89GodEater: We have three PCs in the house. ;)
13:47:18Strife89The one I'm on is physically connected to our router.
13:47:51Strife89B4gder: I rebooted the PC three times to no avail. :(
13:48:04GodEaterwhat has that to do with anything ?
13:48:09 Quit Horscht ("Snak 5.3.3 Unregistered copy. Evaluation period is over. Program will now quit. Thanks for using Snak.")
13:49:17Strife89If I reboot that many times and still can't get a connection.....
13:49:36GodEaterthen perhaps it's not your PC which is at fault ?
13:50:14Strife89I have no way of knowing if any other PC had a connection at the time.
13:50:39*GodEater wonders why so many people remain convinced that "rebooting is the answer"
13:50:39B4gderwhy would that matter?
13:50:55B4gderStrife89: it could just be the wifi of your router that died
13:51:23B4gderor your wifi card in your PC died
13:51:26Strife89Time to pull out my laptop, then.
13:51:49GodEaterin any case, it's not's fault, and is thoroughly offtopic
13:52:03Strife89B4gder: The PC indicated that it was connected to the router.

14:30:26mcuelenaereonda vx747: trying to figure out what's wrong with the lcd driver
14:31:27mcuelenaerethis one is perhaps more clear:
14:32:01B4gdermcuelenaere: so what have you attempted to put on the screen?
14:32:20mcuelenaereediting the framebuffer directly works, but doing it through lcd-16bit.c doesn't
14:32:30bertrikthe problem is the rectangular black area , right?
14:32:36mcuelenaereI've once got some text on it
14:32:39B4gderisn't that a sign of wrong RGB bits?
14:32:42mcuelenaereyes, indeed the rectangle isn't like a rectangle
14:32:51mcuelenaereI tried RGB565 and RGB565SWAPPE
14:33:13mcuelenaerethe latter comes closest to the intented behaviour
14:33:17B4gderI think you should start with filling parts of the framebuffer with known values
14:33:23B4gderto figure out exactly how the bits work
14:33:30mcuelenaerehmm k
14:33:51B4gderit could just as well be 555 or other variations as well

14:35:10B4gderare you sure it is 16bit?
14:35:36B4gderas opposed to 24 or 32 I mean

14:37:00mcuelenaereSLCD_CFG_DWIDTH_16 & SLCD_CFG_CWIDTH_16BIT are set
14:37:13B4gderthat sounds like 16bit then
14:37:13mcuelenaereI think datawidth = 16 & c?width = 16bit
14:38:10mcuelenaerebut the problem is, now that I've changed l.76 to lcd_framebuffer[i][j] = LCD_RGBPACK(0,255,0); it does nothing
14:38:32mcuelenaereso it seems to me there's still some underlying problem with the compiler or aligning or something like that
14:39:19B4gderignore the pack macro for a while and set fixed values like 0, 0xff00 and 0xffff etc
14:39:54mcuelenaereeven those do nothing
14:39:55B4gdersee if you can figure out the bits for red blue green like that
14:40:24mcuelenaerenow I'm trying to add an extra line so there's extra code, but I think gcc is optimising the other away
14:40:37mcuelenaereperhaps I should add some dummy data to the binary and see what that gives
14:41:02B4gderyou can always objdump the object file to see what gcc made of it
14:41:48mcuelenaereor use IDA on bootloader.elf
14:42:13B4gderyeah, that works too
14:43:08mcuelenaereah the device doesn't disconnect from USB so it doesn't reach l.67

14:44:44mcuelenaereI just can't see what's the difference of replacing LCD_RGBPACK(i,k,j) with 0 or 0xff or whatever
14:45:03mcuelenaereit requires less code, so perhaps that's a problem? aligning?

14:48:46B4gderI don't know...
14:50:14mcuelenaereok, I got some values: when I do a LCD_RGBPACK(0,k,0) with k going from 0 to 0xFF it's first black and then goes to red
14:50:23mcuelenaerethis is rgbpack set with RGB565SWAPPED
14:51:30mcuelenaereLCD_RGBPACK(k,0,0) nor LCD_RGBPACK(0,0,k) works
14:52:14mcuelenaere..PACK(255,k,0): blue -> purple
14:53:59B4gderso the middle one is red then
14:54:07B4gderat least parts of it
14:54:24B4gderand the first is blue
14:56:04mcuelenaeredoes anything looks strange to this?
14:57:00B4gdernot that I can spot
14:57:22mcuelenaerehmm then I'm going to compare those with the uCosII source
15:03:25B4gderhm, looking at the bootloader gcc options for my old mips project
15:03:36B4gderit used -G 0 for example
15:03:44mcuelenaereyes I tried that but doesn't work
15:03:48mcuelenaerewhat does that switch do btw?
15:03:57B4gderPut global and static items less than or equal to num bytes into the
15:03:57B4gder small data or bss section instead of the normal data or bss section.
15:03:57B4gder This allows the data to be accessed using a single instruction.
15:04:09B4gderI wonder if that is the sbss section
15:04:36mcuelenaerecould be
15:05:03mcuelenaereuCos also uses -msoft-float, but I suppose that doesn't really matter
15:05:23B4gderonly if you use floats

15:06:59mcuelenaereeh the screenshot is the pastebin'ed code

15:23:12mcuelenaereI'm going to skip some, as these all look like they're blue
15:23:20mcuelenaere2^10 is also blue (although lighter)
15:23:59mcuelenaere2^12 is rather bright blue

15:24:41mcuelenaereall I get is blue
15:24:52mcuelenaere2^14 is darker, 2^16 is brighter .. blue?
15:24:59B4gderwell, 0ff0 was green
15:25:05gevaerts2^16 == 2^0
15:25:56*gevaerts slaps his forehead. Of course it isn't
15:26:15gevaerts2^16 should be 0 in a 16bit
15:26:42*JdGordon hasnt read the whole log.. but.... you dont need to send 2 16bit numbers do you? and youve only found the first one?
15:26:43mcuelenaerelcd_framebuffer[i][j] = (k/2 == 1 ? 2^16 : 2 ^ 0); gives me the same color

15:28:03mcuelenaereI have some buttons identified, but never tried those on the device itself
15:28:07mcuelenaerethe detection I mean
15:28:11GodEatermcuelenaere: okay never mind then ;)
15:28:19mcuelenaerebut I guess I could try
15:28:55*GodEater was wondering if you could put the value you're writing to the lcd into a loop, and then hit a button to write the value out somewhere when it reaches a "non blue" colour ;)
15:29:26mcuelenaerehmm buttons don't seem to work at first glance
15:29:43GodEaterI guess we can shelve that plan for a bit then
15:30:31mcuelenaerebut they worked some time, it's just perhaps they need to be set as input or something like that
15:30:54mcuelenaerebut I'd rather have working LCD output first, then I can do nice printf()'s ;)

19:09:35LambdaCalculus37amiconn: Yes.
19:09:54LambdaCalculus37IIRC it was purchased when it was still marketed as "iPod Photo".
19:09:55amiconnWhat's the apple model number? Is this printed somewhere on the back?
19:10:27LambdaCalculus37It's on the bottom, under the "Designed by..." line.
19:10:36LambdaCalculus37On mine, the model number is A1099.
19:10:41amiconnThing is, it might be possible to reliably distinguish a photo and a color by model number, or even by disk size
19:11:10amiconnThe numbers I'm referring to are starting with 'M'
19:11:36amiconnBut my mini also has an 'A' number printed on the back ... so I wonder what those 'M' numbers are
19:12:33amiconnRegarding disk sizes, says that the photo came as 30, 40 and 60GB, while the color came as 20 or 60GB
19:12:47LambdaCalculus37Hmmm... I've never seen an 'M' model before.
19:12:56amiconnSo if it's 30 or 40GB it must be a photo, and if it's a 20GB it must be a color. 60GB can be either
19:14:57LambdaCalculus37amiconn: Then mine is indeed an iPod color.

19:20:41scorche|shKeripo: hit, and that isnt us..
19:21:08amiconnLambdaCalculus37: Hmm, so that's a color, and iirc the HW revision was 0x60004 ?
19:21:23domonokycan someone with a ppc mac please try this:"> ?
19:22:09LambdaCalculus37amiconn: Yes, that's correct.
19:22:13amiconnBut still a type 0 lcd... that backs the theory that all ipod photos must be type 0
19:22:16LambdaCalculus37domonoky: Saving it now.
19:23:13LambdaCalculus37amiconn: I'm thinking that Apple may have initially built the 20GB models with type 0 LCDs, then started using type 1 later.

19:29:27domonokybluebrother: i just talked with him.. and told him to clean up the code, showed him the patches, etc :-)
19:29:53bluebrotherI've planned to post an updated patch to FS#
19:30:06domonokybut we have a little problem with commiting his code into our svn. He has problems accessing our svn, probably because of blocked ports...
19:30:13bluebrother... FS #9179 that makes it build on linux
19:30:29bluebrotherwell, then we should find out what exactly his problems with our svn is
19:30:47bluebrotheruntil he's fixing the code ;-)
19:31:31*gevaerts is a bit disappointed that this svn issue only crops up now
19:31:48bluebrotheralso, I'd like to have it somewhat restructured: move proxy/ to libcheckwps/ and gui/ to wpseditor/

19:33:03domonokyLambdaCalculus37: thanks.. :-)
19:33:24bluebrotherhow should students learn about it if nobody tells them? And how should one tell them if there is no feedback?
19:33:45bluebrotherand such thing is something students should definitely learn ... the earlier the better.
19:36:50domonokyi am trying. but it seems difficult. None of our Students made progress report, like we wanted :-/
19:37:12scorche|shwell, perhaps that is the issue here
19:37:24scorche|shwe need to stop wanting them to, and start requiring them to

19:46:30bluebrotherwell, we agreed they should report progress, so I don't think it's much of a difference requiring them to report here or on the ml.

19:51:10bluebrotherare there rules specific for that? I.e. by google? You have the power to pass or fail him ... ;-)
19:51:50bluebrotherdomonoky: please check FS #9179

19:54:18scorche|shdomonoky: i wouldnt recommend failing him yet, but it does not need to be written down are his mentor and are the absolute authority
19:55:57bluebrotherbesides, it's not asked much to make progress transparent. The student needs to report it anyway. We make the rules ;-)
19:56:14bluebrotherand our rules are rather nice to students imo, so it's not asking too much.
19:56:25scorche|shindeed...look at ffmpeg..
19:56:33pixelmaa student could also get better help or learn more if they talked about it
19:56:46bluebrotherisn't this way of communication something we *want* them to learn during SoC?
19:57:04scorche|shit is all part of "the experience"
19:57:20bluebrotherso we should definitely enforce it. I just need to thing about those guy who wanted to do the TTS plugin last year
19:57:58bluebrotherhe showed up like once or twice. And failed. If he'd shown up regularly I think he had a much better chance of passing
19:58:17scorche|shwell, he simply had too much on his plate
19:58:34gevaertsI'd say write down some rules _now_, and be strict for the second half
19:58:42midgeyPersonally, I have no problems providing progress reports. I've been a bit quiet and I only send my interim work to Bagder and sdoyon. I post milestones to the tracker
19:59:14bluebrotherpossible. But IIRC that guy also had issues setting up the toolchain, and people in this channel are usually rather helpful ;-)

20:01:17scorche|shwell, that is something to bug the swedes about
20:01:46bluebrotherI'm still wondering what the exact problem with your students access to it is exactly

23:19:45gevaertsHow acceptable is it to access settings from firmware/ ?
23:20:29bluebrotherI don't think so
23:22:08gevaertsSome people have suggested to make the rockbox usb stack user-optional (instead of compile-time). That means accessing settings...
23:23:56LloreanDoes it mean settings?
23:24:03LloreanEr, does it mean settings from firmware?
23:24:40gevaertsMaybe not, but I'm not sure how else it can be done
23:25:00LloreanWell, can we choose whether to charge or go into USB mode via setting without it coming from firmware?
23:25:52LloreanThough, I'm curious why it was suggested it should be runtime choosable?
23:27:20gevaertsBecause it works well for some people, and not for others.
23:27:44preglowaccessing settings from firmware is very no-noi
23:28:10preglowsettings hooks have to go from apps/ to firmware/
23:29:05preglowgevaerts: does it still fail completely for some people?

23:30:15 Quit avis (Remote closed the connection)

23:34:12pixelmagevaerts: is the SD curroption problem no "solved" on the Sansas?
23:34:40pixelmaerr... corruption too
23:34:42gevaertspreglow: no. I'm slightly hindered there by having to learn assembler at the same time
23:34:55Lloreanpixelma: iiuc, there's a preventative measure in place now
23:35:05LloreanIt shouldn't happen, but the underlying problem isn't solved, it's just not triggered any more
23:35:07gevaertspixelma: (careful answer) It's not triggered anymore by the usb stack.
23:35:30pixelmahmm... maybe I should give it a try then too
23:35:54gevaertsSo using rockbox usb is just as safe as copying files within rockbox now
23:36:02pixelmado I remember that the c200s can be tricky to restore?
23:36:13LloreanMaybe we should just enable it in current builds after 3.0, to get some widespread testing and see how common the signal quality issue seems to affect people.
23:36:32preglowLlorean: sounds like a good idea
23:36:44LloreanSince 3.0 will be out, people with problems can be recommended back to it, and if there's a much larger than expected number, we can disable it again.

23:37:18bluebrotherif there are no problems with data corruption I don't see a reason not to enable it.
23:38:36gevaertspixelma: depends. If you have a linux machine around somewhere it's not that hard. But I don't think the kind of corruption we were seeing are likely to cause "hard" problems
23:39:48gevaertspixelma: basically I think the OF usb mode works as long as the FAT bootsector is OK, and that isn't touched during normal operation. That means that any problem should be fixable with chkdsk, or at worst format.

23:50:36XMXIt confuses me.(Programming wise)
23:50:38mcuelenaereah sorry I'm viewing CREDITS
23:50:43XMXYeah, which is why I assumed this one was.

23:51:05bluebrothereven if it was ... as long as you're not doing kernel stuff it won't matter
23:51:24*bluebrother should ROTFL around more to keep up with others
23:51:30XMXWell, I plan to work on it a bit, I started learning C a while back, and got a bit of it down.
23:51:50XMXYES! IT ROX
23:51:54stripwaxwell, at least it's on topic
23:51:59DJ_DeViLi hope i come out for YP-P2 soon :(
23:52:11bluebrotherDJ_DeViL: don't hold your breath ...
23:52:11XMXHopefully Zune will be supported soon :(
23:52:21bluebrothercheck zunelinux
23:52:28XMX?Where at?
23:52:30*gevaerts kicks bluebrother
23:52:37bluebrotherat least if you want to have some fun :)
23:52:42XMXI googled it, and there were only rumors as to it being released soon.
23:53:00*scorche|sh wonders who starts these rumors
23:53:09XMXMe too.
23:53:16gevaertsThey got as far as that? I thought there were just rumors that they were going to get started soon
23:53:18XMXThere are so many rumors lol.
23:53:33XMXYeah, I read about a rumor with Rockbox and Zune.
23:53:36Bagderthey just couldn't decide on what distro, so it failed ;-)
23:53:52*bluebrother just wanted to ask about that distro issue ;-)
23:53:54 Quit DJ_DeViL ()
23:53:58 Quit crope` ("Leaving")
23:54:07scorche|shBagder: damn small is perfect for ARM!
23:54:08XMXbluebrother: I didn't mean putting linux on Zune, but open source software
23:54:23XMXscorchejsh: One sec, I'll get the link
23:54:32XMXopen source firmware*
23:54:44pixelmaweren't they also discovering "machine code"? ;)
23:54:47gevaertsXMX: first someone needs to work out how to run any non-official code on it
23:55:06XMXThere is the rumor.
23:55:17bluebrotherXMX: well, if zunelinux had acutal code running porting rockbox would be much easier.
23:55:25scorche|shheh.. November 29th, 2006
23:55:28XMXyeah, I know. =/
23:55:37XMXIt will be done soon, I hope.
23:56:08scorche|shno one is currently working on it, so dont hold your breath
23:56:09*Bagder won't bet any money on it
23:56:26LloreanBagder: Is the "full inbox" removed from the mailing list finally?
23:56:27gevaertsUnfortunately "hope" is one of the many things that doesn't actually help a port
23:56:36XMXBleh, I kinda figured that, scorch|sh, else it would be posted somewhere on the site.
23:56:37*preglow wouldn't even bet a fistful of dirt on it
23:56:43BagderLlorean: not by me at least
23:56:51*scorche|sh introduces XMX to tab-complete
23:57:07LloreanBagder: Usually I get bouncebacks by now. Maybe it's not full any more.
23:57:11bluebrotherscorche|sh: slow down ... ;-)
23:57:18bluebrother(with XMX)
23:57:31 Quit BlakeJohnson861 (Remote closed the connection)
23:57:32XMXWhat is tab-complete, midn filling me in?
23:57:34*bluebrother wishes would be up again so he didn't need to use
23:57:57scorche|shbluebrother: on which date is it proper to introduce him to tab-complete...the 3rd date?
