More Roomba-ness...

The battery barely charged overnight, for some unknown reason. I tried to run the device again today, only to see it stall out after a few minutes' worth of operation.

So, while I wait for the new battery to arrive, I am trying the process for resetting the battery. Let's see if THIS buys us a bit more runtime. If not, oh well -- there's a new battery on the way anyhow. If yes, then great! It'll mean we have a spare battery in addition to the new one which we'll have soon. The original battery is 3 years old, so I'm not holding out a lot of hope that this procedure will perform miracles. But it can't hurt to try.
