since #rockbox is the offical support channel and is continously logged and read by the devs, it's not such a good idea to deviate from support and technical issues.
in response to this, I have created #rockbox-community. an unoffical room for the users of rockbox to gather and talk about things that don't belong in #rockbox. it's kind of like a town square for rockbox users. so, next time you visit #rockbox...head into #rockbox-community as well and see what other rockbox users are talking about these days.
