For the two hacks I mentioned, I was referring to info found on Chris Russo's FAQ...
<<"How can I change the frequency of e-mail checking on my Audrey?
In the /config diretory you will find a file kcrontab. Using vi you will see a line that looks something like this:
app; min; hour; day; dweek; month
You can either change the number (in this example 54) to a * and it will update every minute, or you can add 12 lines all the same except for the minute 5 , 10 , 15 etc.... and it will update on those minutes past the hour.
Note that you will need to reboot Audrey for these changes to take effect. Also note that if you make changes in the "Download Schedule" applet control, that these settings may be overwritten">>
<<"How can I increase the Audrey screen color depth?
Setting /config/BROWSER_Use256Colors to 0 (default is 1) gets rid of the gross dithering on pictures... so far I've not seen any adverse side effects. Now this thing has serious potential as a picture frame.
Note that when the browser exits, it rewrites the config file, so you need to do this immediately after booting and before running the browser, or just popup a shell. Do a "ps". Look for the process id of the process that says "Browser" in its name. Type "kill xxx" where xxx is that process id. Edit the file. Exit the shell. Hit the browser button. No need to reboot.">>
I was just curious if these had already been implemented in the "Steroids" image and if there were any reasons not to do these two hacks.
