Daily use of Neo1973

The neo doesn't seem to detect that a USB cable supplied 500 mA of power
unless it can network with the PC on the other end of the cable via USB. I
know I've connected the neo to a Windows machine w/o the networking set up
and watched the battery die.
You can force fast charge on the neo with 'echo -n "fast_cccv" >
would have to do that (manually or via a script as I did) each time after
you plug the neo into a USB plug.
I have also written a python script that monitors in the background for slow
charge and pops up a gui asking if you want to switch to fast charge mode.
I don't have it 100% the way I want it. I will post it to the wiki when I
get it using less CPU and dealing with screen lock properly, or before if I
get a demand for it.
