i think it would be cooler to play a video and loop it (but youd have to
make sure it will fit into memory so it dosent spin-up) it would be kinda
usefull during charging

BTW, how do you make a RVF loop? ive got a cool fit-in-memory RVF that i
play while charging so people with thier ipods (evryone here has an ipod,
but i knew better and got my archos :) ) can look at it as they walk by and
go "ooooooh, my ipod cant do that..."
