Subject: favorites list
From: Bryce Benton (me_at_brycebenton.com)
i like the idea.
yesterday i was playing shuffle mode on the entire drive (app. 4000 songs).
i was thinking that it would be nice to have the option of marking good
ones (or bad ones, for that matter).
generally, i like the idea of customizing playlists on the fly.
i've got a recorder 20 and i would be happy to test the functionality of
your contribution... but i've been relying on the daily builds up to this
point. i just downloaded the sdk for windows... i'll need to figure out how
to compile the firmware with your contributions...
