Finally coming up to the last few days of classes. Good old final projects. I'm currently writing a paper on hog farms in Minnesota. Anyone want to know about pfiesteria?
Got my NOMAD from Creative. As soon as I get my developer access I'll start coding. Apparently I have to sign an NDA for now, but sooner or later they'll open let us open the code. The person I'm working with is implementing a nifty-sounding kernel module for the Nomad. Mount -t nomadfs /dev/lp1 or similar.
Speaking of the player, it beats the Rio PMP300 solid. The 64M version comes with 32M internal ram, and a 32M Smart Media card, a docking station, and the requisite headphones and batteries. File transfer seems no faster than the Rio--only about 150kBps through the parallel port. Waiting for a USB version. The Nomad is even smaller than the Rio, and looks a lot spiffier. Haven't entirely figured out the Windows software, though, it's no more intuitive than Diamond's. Ugh.
Well, back to hog farms.
