Shocked 
Hi all,

Been using moOde for abt 3+ years now, still at v4.0 - never updated. :O

Ok, now that I have given y'all a couple secs to get around the initial shock: Reasons were always "'cause I'm workin' on some customizations...".
Problem: It never stopped! First, I had a 20*4 LCD display showing me custom MPD metadata info from the /var/local/www/currentsong.txt file. Then added TTS support. Then came the IR remote functions (with LIRC) - apart from the (obvious) playback functions, I've added my own custom web station presets, to be cycled through when I click my remote's number buttons - This year I decided to get rid of the LCD and replaced it with a 5" touchscreen; started fiddling with the js/php to get the UI look and feel the way I wanted. Still messing with it... I'm used to work as a web developer and just cannot get enough out of moOde's UI (don't try to understand it, don't criticize me either - web developers will understand!!) - Ah, I replaced the default screen blanking scheme (xset) with xscreensaver (switchable via the same UI menu that used to be there for the screen blanking)! Cool eh? Wink

Anyway, I digress; I see many iterations come, and as I do more custom work, I've set myself farther and farther apart from actually upgrading my distro.

I just cannot see it happening: do I suffer from some syndrome or is the newest v6 so damn cool that I am missing out on greatness?

I guess what I mean to say here is that I need some external encouragement to get it going on my little 'ol DAC. Should I definitely, absolutely give the new guy a go or take it with a pinch of salt? (TC you are forbidden to issue your opinions!! - LOL, j/k of course).

Ok guys, feel free to comment. Or, go back to whatever you were doin'. Wink
(P.S.: BTW, is touchscreen support for the jQuery Knob fixed in the mobile/local UI in the new version? Or is it still disabled?)

I don't get it. Why don't you flash a copy of moOde 6.7.1 to a new uSD card and try it yourself. I see no reason for anyone else to carry on an argument about this (ref. Monty Python's Flying Circus "The Argument Clinic").

Regards,
Kent

This is a very unusual thread, the op seems handy at customising to suit their needs, I can't decide whether it didn't occur to them to burn a new SD card or whether they genuinely wanted us to persuade them on the merits of upgrading.
