    When battery is at 100, can you disconnect it?

    Can't google it, get all sorts of weird answers and am curious. Can I write an app that runs in the background, and when the battery is fully charged software disconnects it from the charger? Like there is no battery in the laptop? Just want to know if it is possible? Thanks Nick

    Brainstorming: Reasons why System.IO.FileSystemWatcher() wont pick up a new file.

    I have written a program that watches the file system for a download, checks to see if the file is an audio file, and check to see if it needs to be converted to mp3 using SOX. Once all that is done, the app allows the user to find a matching record in a database and attach the mp3 to that...
