But I think in your directions in the support forums you'd just say "Do
a long press" -- without actually saying how many tenth of a second it
should be. So the phrasing in the forums would remain the same.
Subjective feeling would remain -- a long press. We wouldn't of course
allow very long intervals. Just +/- 30% of the current value maybe.
