None taken, just razzing you a bit ;-)

Good. That works well for me.

Doing a deep discharge the way it currently is (constantly cycling the
battery to 10% and then recharging) is going to wear out the battery due
to number of charge cycles sooner than it would wear out due to not
having _any_ deep discharges (IMHO) -- granted we are talking a couple
of years either way :-).

If a user wants to do a deep discharge, they can do it the old fashion
way: manually (play till it dies).

Thanks, and thanks to everybody for your kind encouragement and testing.
