Right. What is the issue? Cant you just do a partial screen update for the time

The custom screensaver thread (That no longer works but meh) discussed adding times and stuff. What kind of update frequency do you need?

Every two minutes? That hardly sound infeasible by any means. Is it the processing overhead that is killing you? I am obviously missing the point. Will read the post again (yours)


Use skipstone? ah you have a 4... hmm... thinking..

Would a working X server be helpful? That could happen.

Or: Possibly could hack a debian together to provide all your bits and pieces that the 4 is obviously lacking.

Could probably jerry-rig that together. Assuming you have power to the device all the time it probably will "just run" forever... or until the battery dies.
(I have done some grind-kindles-into-the-floor test)

Thoughts?
