If I move slow the top nav menu disappears before I to the sub - as an aside

However if I get someone young to help move it fast we can make it

Looking very shiny now

Still working on it.

I have seen the same thing myself about that top menu bar.
Not yet sure what it may be.

I think it is the browser failing to load all of the java scripts.
The server has a connection limit set, I think at 5 connections per client.

Some browsers, in a search for loading speed, open 6 or more connections per view. Which means one or more of something doesn't get loaded.

I will check the logs when I get a chance, but until then, try a different browser. Or, just try multiple "refresh" actions on the same page - until the browser caches all of the java script.

(A browser other than IE-6, this TW version dropped support for IE-6)

hi,
don't get what the practical implications of a lower framebuffer are. is that of relevance to a non-hacker? tried to look it up, but unsuccessfully.
thanks.

Arrow framebuffer mini tutorial

All of the eink kindles (so far) use a 4-bit framebuffer at the hardware level. That means that you can only display pixels in 16 different shades of gray. To display more than 16 colors, you need to use dithering, which mixes those 16-colors spatially to give up to 256 different AVERAGE brightness levels.

In the case of kindles with 8-bit framebuffers, the bottom and top 4-bits must be identical, or unpredictable (hardware dependent) side-effects will result (according to comments in the eink driver GPL source code).

But for smooth animation, you can really only use 2-bit (black and white) and you need to dither only those two colors to get full grayscale. There is some sample C code showing how to do this dithering, in the "newtrix" demo (both 2-bit and 4-bit dithering).

There is the only [techincal] thread about Paperwhite in Developer's Corner at the moment, so I leave this information here: /usr/bin/powerd in Kindle Touch firmware already knows about magnetic sensor. To see it:
Code:
strings /usr/bin/powerd | grep -i mag
So there is another trace of Paperwhite hardware support (sensor for going to sleep on cover closing) in current Kindle Touch software.

hmm... or perhaps the hint of a magic button?

There was some talk of using a device internally on the DX (and perhaps the KpW) to enable the mode shift.

This stuff could be easily re-purposed for such a task, as an idle thought.

Thanks for checking.

Yep, the same I've seen on KT. So it means I was wrong when I thought it's implemented specifically for Paperwhite. Looks like it's an artifact of support of earlier Kindle model. Sorry for false alarm.

Heck, no apology needed that's great info!!

next up. we need someone to write some code to monitor that and wave magnets around a DX / Kpw might be fun : D

meh okay it might not be fun, would be nice to know though : )
