Thanks for the valued feedback. If your missus's friend has an original silver model and still has the packaging in good condition, I have seen people selling them for £750.00. Since this is 'a how not to guide' I would like to claim that the fact it hangs was intentional. Sadly, this is actually a real bug that I have looked into. It does not happen on my GP2X - but then I may be the only one still running the original firmware. I had forgotten to clear away all my toys before closing down, so there were a couple of buffers that had not been cleared up. I am not sure that this is the solution to the problem as I can just about make out the 4-screen effect as it closes down. Does SDL always do this when it closes down, or am I inadvertently writing all over the lcd control registers ? (Unlikely since I am only stringing together a bunch of SDL functions). Luckily I put a version number on the front screen. I did not consider that it might be useful and was done more as a joke. It is actually the phone number for the sex-chat line 'Really Rude Girls Behaving Badly' (as I am sure many of you will have recognised). However, it will be useful to distinguish one release from another. Sadly what I lack in devving skills I also lack in writing ability, but I am pleased you have found it interesting. Thank you.
