Moar Power!

Thanks to Morpeth Mobiles I have a new battery for my iRiver. It arrived this morning and it took about 10 minutes to strip down the player, remove the old 1700mAh battery and install the new 2200mAh. I can't begin to describe how frustrating it's been being tied to a wall socket! Or the sheer joy of sitting in the garden this afternoon without needing to carry around an extension cable. Oh, and it just struck me that I'll be able to use it in the car again. I'd forgotten all about that. It really is full of win!

I also decided to update the firmware while I was about it. Despite the latest version of RockBox stripping away my custom theme, I can more than cope with the new sleek black interface. As an added bonus I can now play Speex files too. Which inevitably means I'll be heading over to Demonoid in a few minutes...

...after I've eaten my poached eggs on toast. Naturally.
