Hello Mike and others,
It's not that I was intentionally trying to be mean or bitter while posting
that message about the NLS player. I was only trying to have a sense of
humor. Yes, I was being sarcastic, but in a nice way--the way that people
are supposed to be. If I have caused you any confusion or you were thinking
I was simply being harsh, then I solemnly apologize.
I think just that life should be smoother and taken soft, and we need to
laugh a little. Once again, I am just trying to have fun.

Don't let one bad apple spoil the box of fruit. As Ben has said, please
feel free to post to our list on blindness-related subjects (including the
Mariners and Seahawks -- har) as you feel moved. It helps, however, to have
a thick e-skin. There's only so much a list moderator can do to curb
boorish behavior, at least until a pattern of boorish behavior is
established; then something can be done. The problem of a list moderator is
that often admonishing those guilty of acting like louts simply keeps the
thread going rather than straightening the situation out.
In any event, I don't know which player you have but on the Advanced player,
pressing the Info key will give you the state of the battery including
whether it's being charged. When it simply says you have such-and-such
hours of battery (greater than 27 or 29 hours) without mentioning charging,
you're good to go. Leaving the player plugged in doesn't hurt the battery.
Lithium ion batteries are pretty robust.
Anyway, ask questions. The only dumb ones are those not asked.

I was just wondering if it had to be plugged in for a certain number of
hours to build the battery back up. Of course, I understand you plug it in.
I was a bit shocked at the one sarcastic reply I did receive. I have to say
that response will really make me think twice before I post anything more to
