#rockbox log for 2008-08-18

00:00:21saratogawell as a proof of concept I might just try it with one codec to see that everything else is working
00:00:52saratogagrep turns up a couple calls to open in the codecs folder, but I think all or at least most are for stand alone versions of the codec and not used in rockbox
00:01:01amiconnIt seems like the PP memory controller is pretty efficient, so using the cached alias addresses is only slighly slower than the cached addresses if large amounts of data are accessed linearly
00:01:04saratogathough nsf.c has one ominous call to open ...
00:01:24amiconnErr, s/cached/uncahed/
00:01:49 Quit erram_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:02:04saratogathe memory controller probably fetches an entire cacheline everytime even if its uncached
00:02:17amiconnIt might even help other parts of code to become faster, since that linearly accessed data wouldn't throuw other data out of the cache

00:04:03amiconnI checked this when making the greylib work on the cop. Drawing only became a few percent slower with the uncached buffer, much less than what was gained by offloading the isr to the cop
00:04:13LearBy the way, if a codec did access files directly, it'd be noticed on HD targets...

00:25:29LegoSharkdownload it on the 3rd gen
00:25:38LegoSharkwhen i download the file, theres nothing there
00:25:40BigBambiAnd ipod 3rd gen, not ipod nanao 3rd gen
00:25:48LegoSharkno nano
00:25:58BigBambiThe nano 3rd gen doesn't work
00:26:07LegoSharkthere's nothing in the file when i open it
00:26:12BigBambiAs clearly stated on the front page of
00:26:17scorche|shLegoShark: which extracting program are you using? is likely hiding the folder as it starts with a "."
00:26:37BigBambiIf it is a "old" 3rd gen, just use rbutil, it is a lot easier
00:26:44kugellinuxstb: In which file? I can't seem to find something usefull in the list.c files
00:26:57LegoShark i click on the iPod 3rd gen
00:27:28scorche|shLegoShark: i know...try to use rbutil as it describes in the manual
00:27:31BigBambiLegoShark: Out of interest, why not use rbutil? And what is your OS?
00:27:37LegoSharkthe file: rockbox downloads and there's nothing there
00:27:43LegoSharki open it up
00:27:46LegoSharkits empty
00:27:48amiconnn1s: I know that one of those console music codecs does. Iirc it was jhMikeS' testbed for dual core development
00:27:51BigBambiWHAT OS?
00:27:58LegoSharkOS X
00:27:59scorche|shLegoShark: i know...i already explained that it likely isnt and is just hiding the folder within
00:28:33linuxstbkugel: gui_syncstatusbar_draw(&statusbars, true); - in list.c. Otherwise it's probably the functions using the list - e.g. menu.c
00:28:37scorche|shyour program will hide files/folders that start with "."
00:28:46BigBambiLegoShark: As scorche|sh has said, that is because the folder in the archive is .rockbox. Directories starting with a full stop are hidden by default on OS X so you can't see it
00:29:03LegoSharkso, how do i get to it?
00:29:07BigBambiLegoShark: Use rbutil
00:29:16LegoSharkwhat is that?
00:29:27scorche|shLegoShark: we have told you many times to try out rbutil as said in the the manual and follow those links
00:29:29BigBambiIt is the automatic installation program

00:34:23linuxstbkugel: "button = get_action(CONTEXT_PITCHSCREEN,TIMEOUT_BLOCK);" would seem to be the problem - your function will be waiting in the get_action() function, and not returning. Try changing that to TIMEOUT_NOBLOCK
00:34:54linuxstbscorche|sh: Yes, but I knew that... It's mcuelenaere and others that need to be convinced (IIUC mcuelenaere has implemented some kind of admin page now)
00:35:18scorche|shan admin page is fine...a "to be approved" area is not
00:35:32scorche|shi will have to look at the site now that i have internet again
00:35:47kugellinuxstb: Ah, now the while loop is actually looping
00:36:25kugelThanks, now it works. I'm gonna use HZ/5 like in quickscreen
00:37:08 Quit erram_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:37:15scorche|shit isnt really something that needs some "convincing"...if it isnt done this way, the status of the site to be protected under "safe harbor" is in jeopardy
00:37:30linuxstbscorche|sh: As you're hosting it, I say it's your call.
00:38:34BigBambiWe just need to comply with the laws as they stand (not matter how bloody stupid) in the country in which it is hosted
00:38:48BigBambiAs that is the US, that means some damn stupid laws :)
00:39:02BigBambi(not that other places don't have them too) :)
00:39:55linuxstbWe can't host it on sealand? ;)
00:39:57scorche|shit isnt so much complying with laws, as it is the site qualifying for "safe harbor" under the DMCA
00:40:22BigBambiWell yes, but complying in that sense
00:40:39BigBambiThe DMCA is still a fricking stupid law, that I am glad doesn't apply to me
00:40:59kugellinuxstb: What's the matter with that timeout? Hw
00:41:15kugels/Hw/Why even have a timeout?
00:41:28scorche|sh(act)...but large large parts of it havent even been proven in case law, so it is pretty silly

00:42:19kugelget_action waits for button input, but no longer than timeout, right?
00:42:20BigBambiNonetheless, better safe than sorry :)
00:43:01linuxstbkugel: Yes.
00:43:18 Quit stripwax (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:44:02kugelBut why would I want to choose no timeout? I'd prefer a very short timeout in any case. Is it to safe cpu load/battery or something?
00:44:06scorche|shBigBambi: is the same thing that protects ISPs, search engines, and such, so it is a valid thing to point to as long as you fulfill the requirements
00:44:48linuxstbkugel: Yes, the thread can be put to sleep (and if all threads are sleeping, the CPU is put to sleep).
00:45:00 Quit erram_ (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
00:45:38BigBambiscorche|sh: Yes indeed. My problem is with having to be protected from the nonsense that is DMCA, but given it is there then we do indeed need to follow it so long as the site is hosted in the US
00:46:19linuxstbBut ignoring the law, I think a "publish automatically, remove things later if there are problems" will be less work overall, so would prefer it anyway.

00:50:20kugellinuxstb: So, if it saves battery to choose a rather high timeout, why would anyone want a very short (e.g. each tick) timeout? I can't think of a situation now where a timeout less than HZ is worth the battery life

00:51:24mcuelenaerethe change isn't that big to disable the current admin panel
00:51:32mcuelenaerebut a new one will have to be made
00:51:38mtzHi there on rockbox! I wanted to ask you guys a question.
00:51:39mcuelenaereor the current will need to be edited
00:51:46BigBambimtz: Then please do
00:52:17linuxstbmcuelenaere: I guess we need a way for admins to manage the existing themes - to delete/edit etc
00:52:24scorche|shi was thinking of having a different sort of admin panel that we can use to remove themes from public eye, easily edit fields, etc
00:52:41mcuelenaereahh shouldn't be that hard to make
00:52:47linuxstbMaybe we could borrow the forum's authentication system...
00:52:58scorche|shit could even just be another few buttons onto the existing page after a login
00:53:02mtzI got this Sandisk Sansa Connect MP3-Player which is actually very cool (it got WIFI and its not expensive at all). And it runs Linux plus a Mono-UI. More Information was already collected on
00:53:05linuxstbI assume usernames/passwords are just in a mysql table...
00:53:15*linuxstb remembers he has a mirror of the forum database...
00:53:47*linuxstb then remembers that PC died...
00:53:48mtzBut Sansa Connect got a crappy Interface and it almost has none of the features it could have.
00:54:36mcuelenaerelinuxstb: you mean only the username/password data or also the session data itself? (meaning imitating SMF)
00:54:49mcuelenaereso one doesn't have to login twice
00:55:02linuxstbmcuelenaere: I was just thinking the username/password data, but sharing sessions would be even nicer...
00:55:51mcuelenaereI see forums.rockbox created a PHPSESSID cookie so they are using standard PHP sessions
00:55:58mcuelenaere(next to the SMF specific cookie)
00:56:21mtzSandisk as well stopped improving the Connect as ZING, the Company who actually developped it got sold to DELL. There was also a yahoo-Streaming service but they stopped it as well, it will be continued on Rhadopsy, but without the Wireless-Download-Function. The Device is almost useless.
00:56:40BigBambimtz: What is the question?
00:56:58linuxstbmcuelenaere: I'm not sure about SMF's license though - so we (you...) need to be careful about copying code verbatim...
00:56:59 Quit ompaul (Client Quit)
00:57:03mtzYeah, the Question. What would be needed to port Rockbox to Sansa Connect. Is it only the Bootloader-Code?
00:57:19scorche|shlinuxstb: it isnt a very great license..
00:57:22mcuelenaerelinuxstb: let's first see how SMF handles it
00:57:34mcuelenaereit is open source, isn't it?
00:57:37linuxstbscorche|sh: That's what I suspected...
00:57:38BigBambimtz: You need to write drivers for all the hardware, and discover a way to run custom code
00:58:23BigBambimtz: The bootloader is typically a cut down Rockbox that initialises hardware and jumps to the main binary (or the OF if dual boot is done)
00:58:25linuxstbHmm, "Any Distribution of this Package, whether as a Modified Package or not, requires express written consent from Simple Machines LLC."...
00:58:27mtzBigBambi: They published some Diffs (linked in ), would that be enough briefly?
00:58:43scorche|shmtz: have you had a look at the NewPort wiki page?
00:58:58mtzMaybe i had some months ago, will do it again.
00:58:59linuxstbmcuelenaere: No, I wouldn't call that an "open source" license - too many restrictions.
00:59:00scorche|shyou might want to have a chat with desowin whenever he comes around...i think he has one as well
00:59:20scorche|shlinuxstb: is the one thing i dislike about SMF =/
00:59:38linuxstbmcuelenaere: But it shouldn't be a problem - you just need to re-implement functions, rather than copy/paste.
00:59:49mtzAnyway, i wanna start a Petition to Sandisk with all the unsatisfied people in some Forums - what should i request from Sandisk / Zing?
00:59:59mcuelenaerelinuxstb: yeah, I was thinking the same
01:00:06scorche|shmtz: petitions dont really work...
01:00:15BigBambimtz: I doubt you will get anywhere
01:01:16mtzBut its such a cool device and they cut down all the functions. I can imagine it would even be good for them to open up the Device - as it was for Sansa 22x.
01:02:14mtzI know that Petitions wont help a lot. But still i wanna do something - without being a Developper myself (unfortunately).
01:02:28scorche|shi dont see wha saying that in here will do for you..
01:03:27mcuelenaerelinuxstb: only problem will be that the standard cookie will only work for and not for; so that'll require an SMF hack
01:03:36mtzDo you have any hints? I'd even lend or give away my Sansa Connect to someone who could crack it better thain i can.
01:03:39mcuelenaereor is there some way to set this in the settings?
01:04:19scorche|shmtz: as i said before, desowin has looked at is might want to chat with him, or look around in a forum thread (if one exists)
01:04:27linuxstbmcuelenaere: I don't think it's a problem to hack SMF. I don't know much about cookies - can you simply change it to something like * ?
01:04:52gevaertsI would just do your own session management. Maybe reuse the users/passwords from SMF, but why try to reuse sessions?
01:04:53mcuelenaereyes AFAIK you can set it to that (or either
01:05:11mcuelenaeregevaerts: user friendlyness?
01:05:34mtzOk. Thanks anyways. I'll try to contact Desowin.
01:05:39mcuelenaerebut anyway you're right, it isn't a priority
01:06:15linuxstbI guess we need to decide if we want users to log in before uploading themes?
01:06:31linuxstbIt's a shame we're not sharing the wiki's authentication, as real-names are enforced there...
01:07:19linuxstbUnless we sync the wiki's htpasswd file...
01:07:50*amiconn dislikes our current wiki authentication
01:07:59gevaertsSince the wiki uses standard http authentication, you could try to login there with the user's data...
01:08:04amiconnBasic authentication without ssl ...
01:08:27scorche|shwanting them to log in would be handy...(makes one part of the OCILLA easier to enforce as well)...and could also have a nice "my themes" button where authors could easily edit/update their own themes
01:09:14mcuelenaerethe password seems to be sha1(strtolower($regOptions['username']) . $regOptions['password'])
01:09:26linuxstbscorche|sh: Yes, I was wondering about how authors could edit/update themes, but should an author have more rights than anyone else to a particular theme?
01:11:09gevaertsDoes the forum database have a real name somewhere?
01:11:41scorche|shlinuxstb: hrm...i suppose not, but then again, that would be nice to spurn in people could only upload their "remixed" versions and control those instead of maliciously ediing all the other themes
01:12:21kugellinuxstb: Would be nice if you
01:12:31kugel'd answer my previous question
01:12:33gevaertsYou want to allow bugfixes
01:12:40linuxstbgevaerts: I think just "username" and "name". "name" is what is shown in the forum - e.g. "linuxstb" for me.
01:13:20BigBambiWe don't want the situation that if someone fixes a broken theme they upload the new identical (looking) one and the broken one remains
01:13:20mcuelenaeregevaerts, linuxstb: well the database table 'members' does have a realName entry..
01:14:02linuxstbmcuelenaere: In addition to "name" and "username" ?
01:14:05scorche|shBigBambi: i would prefer that to allowing someone to come along and brutalize the existing themes (though we could incorporate a "restore" button)
01:14:19scorche|shmoderation can always come in and delete the abandoned one
01:14:29gevaertsIs that a problem now?
01:14:31n1sMaybe we could have some kind of versioning for themes so that when an update is uploaded by someone you can still get older version (for example if the update is bad)
01:14:33mcuelenaerelinuxstb: yes, but that's just how the mysql table is organised; I don't know how the PHP code handles it..
01:14:37BigBambitrue, then we need some function to flag broken ones
01:15:06linuxstbn1s: Yes, I think we definitely need a versioning system.
01:15:48gevaertsThe new theme would also need a new name then I guess. Not really desirable
01:15:49mcuelenaerelinuxstb: hmm no perhaps I misunderstood; the database only has memberName & realName AFAICS

01:33:42gevaertsI can see one issue though. Wiki people and theme people will be disjoint sets I guess, so having to register on the wiki (which you will never edit) to use another site may be a bit unnatural
01:35:43linuxstbMaybe we could setup another "TWikiUsersGroup" page listing users with access to the themes site, and then change the wiki registration page so it looks like a "theme/wiki registration page"
01:36:53linuxstbThe alternative is yet another registration system...

02:40:23linuxstbI would guess so, but I don't own a Sansa.
02:40:30SoapWas your sansa in MTP or MSC mode when you transfered files?
02:40:59 Join jfc [0] (
02:41:15SoapLet it finish, but that is not what you problem is - that "refreshing database" notification is all about the original firmware, it has no impact on Rockbox's ability to see your music.
02:41:44fiXXXerMetSoap: MTP or MSC mode from rockbox or original firmware?
02:42:00SoapRockbox has no USB mode - so I'm talking about the original firmware.
02:42:19Soap(that came out pissy, didn't mean to be pissy)
02:42:25fiXXXerMet(no problem)
02:42:33fiXXXerMetGoing to Show Files => All shows the files

02:44:00linuxstbYou should read the section in the Rockbox manual about updating the database.
02:44:08linuxstb(the Rockbox database)
02:44:14fiXXXerMetAlright, I will
02:44:54linuxstbThe Sandisk firmware marks the "Music" folder as hidden, which is why it doesn't show by default. I'm not sure, but I think most people put their music elsewhere - e.g. in an "Audio" folder, to prevent that problem

03:25:00Soapwolff, Unless you hit it with a hammer I seriously doubt you caused any damage.
03:25:06wolffand now when i plug it into my computer it doesn't recognize it.. NO!!!!!!!!
03:25:19SoapLet's calm down, step back, and deliver unto the channel some details.
03:25:19wolffI deleted all the rockbox files off it
03:25:26wolffand put on the newest version
03:25:30wolffusing the windows explorer
03:25:59wolffwhat can I do ?
03:26:19SoapPlease start by telling a step-by-step narrative of what you did, OS, Ipod model, software used, keys pressed - all that.

03:26:31ColdMonsterhello every body
03:26:37ColdMonsteri need a litle help
03:26:41ColdMonsteris some one here?
03:26:42SoapAll I know now, and all you have told anyone, is that you have an iPod, and you think you messed something up. Very little information.
03:27:00ColdMonsterno no
03:27:19scorche|shwolff: try installing rockbox using rbutil as said in the manual
03:27:34ColdMonsterits like this my hold button is messed up doenst work is there any whay to start original firmware without the hold button
03:27:36SoapColdMonster, that was to wolff. There are 116 other people here - you just need to state your question and hope someone will answer it. Never ask to ask.
03:27:39wolfflooks like it is frozen.. my ipod
03:27:45wolffyeah but now when i plug it into my computer nothing shows up !
03:27:53Soapwolff, please give me the details I asked for.
03:28:02wolffok so here is what i did
03:28:06scorche|shwolff: in the manual there are also instructuins on how to reset your ipod and enter disk mode..
03:28:07ColdMonsterah ok so how to i state my question
03:28:35 Join cool_walking_ [0] (
03:28:57Soapwell, you kind of stated it while I was typing that - so...IIRC pressing "Menu" while the iPod is booting will also take you to Apple OS. The manual should say - but IIRC "Menu"
03:29:00wolffi downloaded the latest version of the software
03:29:12wolffthen i replaced all files on the drive in that folder
03:29:19wolffand when i safely removed it
03:29:35wolffand the ipod restarted ... it showed the beginning screen
03:29:36Soapwolff, what version? What iPod? What computer OS? But as scorche said - there are instructions in the manual on how to reset your iPod and then force it into Apple's Disk Mode.
03:29:48scorche|shwolff: when speaking in here, please keep complete thoughts on one is much easier to read...
03:30:03wolffthen it says.... Rockbox boot loader... blah blah blah.... and Rockbox loaded. as the last line
03:30:07wolffWindows XP

Is there something I need to do to prepare it, like dismounting the filesystem or something? I'm on linux if it matters, and using the very latest svn (just checked out and built)

04:04:20scorche|shrockbox doesnt currently have USB support unless you recompile with a few changes as said here:

04:05:58bd_I don't know if it's broken, but it's definitely advertising a usb-storage device
04:06:24bd_this is all just a default, normal build
04:07:04SoapColdMonster, on the themes issue...Are you running a new build when previously you had been running a > 1 month old build?
04:07:29bd_scorche|sh: the only problem is I'm getting a media not present error...
04:08:20SoapI assume you are - if you are not I assume you installed the themes with RBUtil - the themes it downloads are (almost) all broken by a recent change to the While Playing Screen code. A replacement theme site is in the works, but until that comes on-line you should look at the wiki galleries for working themes - it is your best bet.
04:08:58SoapNot all of those themes are working, either, but more of them are - and there is a detailed sticky thread in the forums discussing what changes to WPS code were made and what you need to do to repair broken themes.
04:09:21ColdMonsterthis explains a lot
04:09:26Soap(did that last line come through complete? it didn't echo properly on my end)

10:04:53LloreanHi. Saw a recent commit by sdoyan. I don't really understand the language stuff, but it kinda looks to me like it hard-codes the units to read "s" and "min" independent of language? Did he talk over the commit in here at all, since I thought preglow had been talking about a fix for this?
10:05:17LloreanIn fact, I haven't heard much from him at all except drive by commits from time to time.
10:06:29 Join krz [0] (
10:06:47pixelmaI was really surprised by that commit too, esecially thinking about preglow's work on it too. And I also wondered if that was something that "violated" the feature freeze

10:07:39LloreanI don't think simply changing the units would've violated the feature freeze.
10:07:59LloreanBut to me that seems like it would've been a simpler change than what this is.
10:08:09pixelmaand I would also like to see more communication
10:08:17LloreanSimply changing the units to seconds, then multiplying all the current values * 60 and adding a few lower ones.

10:11:45LloreanI will also admit I'd have like to have just heard more from him before making the change anyway. Since people had discussed it both ways in here, it seems somewhat unilateral of him to commit the change without at least first showing up with a patch on it, since he was in effect reverting a portion of the change that renamed it "Skip Length"

11:46:55linuxstbHow? The only problem I can see is that it should use UNIT_MIN/UNIT_SEC instead of "s" and "min".
11:47:19JdGordonalso hardcoding the valid values in defeats the purpose of using the TABLE_SETTING macro
11:53:36JdGordondo these values look better? The point of th setting is more for minute jumping, not seconds so there should be more > 60...

12:01:30linuxstbI agree - keep the two issues separate.

12:16:24pondlifeThey used to scroll
12:16:30LloreanWell they definitely don't now.
12:16:36pondlifeRead my comment on
12:16:59pondlifeI've been over this before, didn't realise that sdoyon's fix broke scrolling though
12:17:21pondlife(IIRC, I explicitly told him to check this...
12:17:39LloreanI thought most of the things he removed were things explicitly added in the past to make sure scrolling can keep working
12:17:47LloreanI seem to recall problems on that screen in a similar vein in the past
12:18:01pondlifeThe list code has a talk_shutup() (or whatever it is) that stops voice output if a list handler returns ACTION_NONE.
12:18:12pondlifeThis was added to shut up the voice quickly when browsing
12:18:22pondlifeA good idea, but it backfires here
12:18:46pondlifeBetter to remove all voice support from the list code itself, and make the speech callbacks responsible
12:18:56pondlifeThen we can have our cake and eat it...
12:19:12pondlifeOr rather, have our voice that shuts up nicely, and still scroll
12:19:35pondlifeI might be over-simplifying - best to see if sdoyon can comment further
12:20:16pondlifeThat poor screen has never had both voice and scrolling working nicely. ;)
12:21:16LloreanVoicing was working somewhat decently before wasn't it?
12:21:18pixelmayeah, I remember that going back and forth...
12:21:34LloreanLike, not perfect, but at least it voiced *and* scrolled
12:21:38pondlifeYes, but the talk_shutup() stuff in gui/list.c broke it
12:21:50pondlifeIIRC, of course... it's been a while
12:23:32pondlifeSorry, I mean voiced and scrolled and updated the clock
12:23:35LloreanFrom the task entry (I wish he'd used FS# instead of B# so I don't have to type it each time i go back) it sounds like he knew it'd break scrolling. =/

13:30:39LloreanWhy not measure a very, very small amount to get an idea of how long would be reasonable? Remember these are 80mhz lower power CPUs.
13:31:06patrakovwill try. thanks
13:33:32linuxstbOn the ipod, you probably want to use the USEC_TIMER macro - this is a 32-bit microsecond timer. e.g. "now = USEC_TIMER;".
13:34:46LinusNlinuxstb: ah, i forgot about that one
13:35:18patrakovSoap: old = USEC_TIMER; my_code(); elapsed = USEC_TIMER - old; would give me the execution time of my_code() in microseconds?
13:36:16*GodEater wonders why Soap has been invoked
13:36:26linuxstbYou can confirm by making my_code() just be "rb->sleep(5*HZ);" - that should sleep for 5 seconds.

19:24:50amiconnIs anyone going to revert r18309, or in favour of doing so?
19:25:24amiconnTrading one bug for the other isn't what I'd call a fix...
19:26:47gevaertsIt was during the freeze. If it introduces any problem at all, I'd say revert
19:28:07amiconnIt fixes the voice problem, at the cost of reintroducing the scroll problem
19:28:46amiconnI'm not talking about the insane skip lengths, those are debatable but don not introduce a bug

21:30:22bluebrotherhmm. But I shouldn't need to do that explicitly, do I? As the constructor calls the constructor of the base class first
21:30:32domonokylike BootloaderInstallHex::BootloaderInstallHex(QObject* parent) : BootloaderInstallBase(parent) { ... } and in the base class the same for a QObject..

22:52:01domonokyRalpH_himself: you wikiname ?
22:52:42webguest97What are the terminal commands to do this?
22:52:50fmlCan I use the DEBUGF macro in drivers/button.c? Or is it only usable in the apps code? I don't get any output in the sim.

22:55:29fmlOr where should the output of DEBUGF appear?

22:57:37rasherdomonoky: It gets difficult when dealing with utf8 though. Especially since the windows commandline can be all sorts of odd encodings

22:58:42webguest97I was going to work in the cygwin terminal
22:59:06rasherI don't think that's better, but I guess we won't know by sitting on our hands, so don't let me stop you
23:00:36webguest97What do I type to create such a talk clip?
23:01:06fmlAnybody? Where should the output of the DEBUGF appear (H120 sim under linux)?

23:05:12star_jasmineI"m trying to file a bug report, and register myself. I haven't got the activation email though. can someone help?
23:06:04fmlBagder: ok, that's what I assume. But it doesn't. Does the sim use the same drivers/button.c as the target?
23:06:57rasherfml: Did you enable debugf in configure?
23:07:13Bagderfml: no it doesn't
23:08:05fmlrasher: it's a sim build so DEBUGF should be on.
23:08:17fmlBagder: aha, that's the reason then!
23:08:17rasherOh right

23:11:06BagderI can, yes
23:11:56gevaertsCan you have a look at star_jasmine's problem?
23:13:15Bagderwell, I don't see any such user
23:14:09BagderI guess the interface just doesn't display users until they are verified
23:14:49gevaertsSo the verification mail probably got stuck in some spam filter somewhere...
23:15:27amiconnrasher, domonoky (fro the logs): sapi_voice.vbs will error out if there is no voice installed for the specified language
23:15:57amiconnAnd nowadays sapi_voice.vbs stdio communication uses utf16le all the way
23:16:20star_jasminenever mind. it was my fault. I don't have a jaber ID, and it was giving me problems

23:31:33Bagderif so, the link is so unlikely that I haven't found it...
