I read, just not that often :-).

Bookmark files fall into two categories. The first is file (M3u) or directory
specific. This type of bookmark is created in the same directory as the
currently playing file or directory. In other words, if I'm playing
/music/foo.m3u and I do a 'Create Bookmarks', a file called
/music/foo.m3u.bmark is going to be created. This will happen no matter where
you are at in the m3u list. This will also happen if you are playing a song
from a directory, i.e. pressing 'Create Bookmark' while listening
/music/foo2/song.mp3 will create a bookmark called /music/foo2.bmark. This is
because Rockbox plays individual songs by creating a playlist of the directory
the song is in. In either case, 'Load Bookmark' and 'Create Bookmark' will
look at the information for the currently playing track or m3u, and generate
the name of the bookmark file to create or load. If nothing is playing, the
file name can't be created.

The other category is the 'Most Recent Bookmarks'. This is a list of the 10
most recently created bookmarks across the Rockbox, regardless of the where it
was created. This was my 'lazy man's' way of accessing bookmarks without
having to navigate down sub-directories to load a bookmark file and is
accessible from the bookmark menus. This bookmark file always has the same
name (/.rockbox/recent.bmark), so it can be loaded at any time.

Hope this makes sense and clears up the usage.
