00:23:34SraraYo, for some reason I was unplugging my Sansa Clip+ from the PC (it's how I turn it on / off since PWR button is broken along with Volume up) and it said "Panic" and I can't open it anymore.
00:23:57SraraLike I plug it into USB and back and nothing happens.

00:26:30SraraOh no.

00:26:36[Saint]Anyway. Bad news.

00:26:51[Saint]The only option here is waiting for the battery to run down.
00:27:02[Saint]But, that shouldn;t take /too/ long if the screen is on.
00:27:05SraraThere's no screen..
00:27:15SraraIt's black. It doesn't even show the USB charging icon.
00:27:37[Saint]Oh, I see. Then, it could take a while.
00:27:56[Saint]Up to 40 hours or so on a full charge I think.
00:28:21[Saint]You can verify there is still charge in the battery by plugging in sensitive monitors.
00:28:39[Saint]You should hear a small "pop" on connection. As long as you do, there's still a charge.
00:29:01[Saint]When it eventually runs out, plugging USB again _should_ magically make it burst into life again.
00:29:18[Saint](Normally, you'd hold the power button for ~30s)
00:29:26SraraTime to wait.

01:38:13[Saint]JdGordon: thinking about again, I'm not convinced that else you got me to add is required at all.
01:41:00[Saint]Should've questioned it at the time, but I was in "get it done" mode.
01:42:33 Quit Srara (Quit: - A hand crafted IRC client)
01:45:56JdGordon[Saint]: do a player build if you don't beleive me
01:46:22JdGordonyou will get an error "SHUTDOWN_PREFIX undefined" or something like that
01:58:24JdGordon[Saint]: also, I'd prefer if you switched the logic around so it is #ifdef HAVE_SHUTDOWN_IN_MENU, instead of #if*n*def
01:59:18[Saint]I was kinda thinking that, but, surely its basically irrelevant.
01:59:29JdGordonit makes it easier to read :)
01:59:35JdGordonpretty pelase!
01:59:56[Saint]It was a lot easier to do "If not PLAYER_PAD" than "If EVERYTHING_ELSE".
02:00:23JdGordonyes, but thats old code
02:00:59JdGordonifdef HAVE_SHUTDOWN_IN_MENU is the same as the old logic actually :)
02:01:37[Saint]I was /fairly/ sure I did it for a reason.
02:01:54[Saint]But...that was like, months ago, and stuff. Ain't nobody gots time for rememberin.
02:02:48JdGordonswitch it and put it on gerrit
02:03:23[Saint]I also need to de-deprecate LANG_SHUTDOWN to keep kugel happy I think.
02:03:35[Saint]But I really have NFI why I did that.
02:04:30[Saint]If I'm just adding a voice string to a previously unvoiced option, I don't have to deprecate and append, do I?
02:05:10JdGordonI'm not sure how voice files work
02:05:17[Saint]Nor I.
02:05:42JdGordonyes, you probably should deprecate it then
02:06:15JdGordonand do s/LANG_SHUTDOWN/LANG_SHUTDOWN_OLD/g in the lang folder so you can reuse the identifier
02:06:47[Saint]and then a second commit to remove LANG_SHUTDOWN_OLD later, one assumes?
02:08:24JdGordonno, it will stay deprecated untill some time later when it is removed
02:08:31JdGordoni think we have quite a few deprecated strings
02:09:00[Saint]Oh, right. Yes. Unused strings are removed automagically, usually around a release or something iirc.

12:41:29[Saint]I'm not even going to try it, but it certainly seems like it would allow me to modify the global moderators group, which doesn't seem right. I'm not sure I'm that blind, I believe its popped up since I last logged in to the forums and checked the moderation center.

16:33:00copperthat site lists the Classic "3g" with the 2.0.4 firmware, and the Classic "4g" with the 2.0.5 firmware, which seems to confirm that there is a new hardware revision
16:33:43coppersame here
16:37:51[Saint]the HW won't have changed, i don't think.
16:39:03[Saint]and they can't patch out the exploit emcore uses without new hw as far as I'm aware.
16:39:59[Saint][7] could go into that in more detail
16:41:35copperthe silent update, this late, is rather strange, though

20:31:35LittleAnonHi, what advantages does Rockbox give over SanDisk's propietary firmware on the Sansa Clip?
20:34:34ZincAlloyrockbox is incredibly powerful, yet rather simple to use. What is the SanDisk's firmware lacking in your opinion?
20:35:40toehser1That is a rather large question, I recommend you read the manual to get an idea of the features, for the Clip Zip (you didn't say which Clip),
20:36:18 Quit rela (Quit: Leaving)
20:36:58ZincAlloyI figured LittleAnon was talking about the Clip:
20:36:59 Join rela [0] (~x@pdpc/supporter/active/rela)
20:37:30LittleAnonim choosing between either the clip+ or the zip yet
20:38:07LittleAnonthe most important reason to install rockbox for me is its license
20:38:57toehser1Zip vs + synopsis: Zip fixed problems with the power switch failing, has micro USB not mini, color screen, FM text, front mic position, couple other things I think.
20:39:28ZincAlloythe color screen is rather shitty, though. nice to have, but shitty.
20:39:45toehser1I _strongly_ recommend Zip over + because of the power switch issue. I have 2 failed clip+ players sitting on the shelf...
20:39:48LittleAnonso the zip is overall better?
20:40:07toehser1No, they are overall very close...
20:40:38ZincAlloyIt's a great little player at an incredibly cheap price
20:40:44toehser1I don't care about the color screen, mini USB vs micro USB you _may_ care about, the mic position is _slightly_ better...
20:41:30toehser1If you can get a Clip+ for a better price than a Clip Zip, I _would_ say go for it... except for the power switch hardware failure issue on the Clip+.
20:42:03LittleAnonI can get it for 10 bucks less
20:42:05ZincAlloyI'm using a clip zip myself. other than the color screen issues and the short battery life it's an amazing player
20:43:49LittleAnoncan the zip use microSDHC?
20:43:55toehser1Again... I _would have_ said that makes it the best choice, based on _features_ I like both about equally... but... between my kids and myself, *3* of the Clip+ players have failed the same way, the power button micro switch breaks its connection from the PCB... so I'm strongly in favor of the Zip.
20:44:12toehser1Both support 64GB fine, formatted as FAT32.
20:44:39LittleAnonI was concerned because I read somewhere it only support 32gb
20:45:06toehser1The issue is that the 64GB cards come with exfat formatting and have to be reformatted to FAT32, but they work fine then.
20:45:31LittleAnonahh alright
20:45:32ZincAlloyeven the original firmware is ok with 64gb cards, but I believe the number of files it can handle is limited and it takes forever to update the database
