lol, you're going into the wayback machine in the project... This thread
is the 'contest' for the boot animation, lugiber definitely submitted a lot of great ones - and one of his eventually did win.
His favorite of mine was the drunken droid
, but he submitted many!

The reason I say that is because when I booted back to WinMo the other night, the battery indicator in WinMo told me that I had drained substantially farther than XDA just had.
Granted, the battery meter was never great to begin with, but it had been better 'lately'.
So, I'd say this is more of an observation rather than a bug report. I wonder if you (or others) are seeing the same thing and that the battery is being reported as 'more full' than it really is???
The battery meter has always been off. jonpry (very talented developer) wrote a completely different batt algo - that even changed how polling worked, how it was calculated in sleep, and even designed a way to do 'mini-wakes' in order to get accurate battery readings. It worked great - but only for RHOD so it never made it mainline.
ACL was working to reverse-engineer the algo's from WinMo, with the hopes that we could at least get more sensible meters, as the current way we calculate battery life is very broken (as everyone knows).
There's a battery calibration app, which I hear helps in short bursts - but in reality we need to fix the algo.
