We want a simple method to get battery level if it exists on a system regardless if its Linux, Windows, or Mac OSX.

Turns out this is pretty messy as part of it relies on the OS vendor and part is really low-level hardware implementation details.  But I thought I got all 3 major operating systems covered.

I tested Windows 7  64 bit & Linux Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit - was all worky, but Gael had different results :(

What do you get ?

The Start of the Port Directive

Now that I've been working in Angular for a little while, I can see the potential power of Directives.  Directives are neat, often self contained little views into your application.

A shoutout - Thanks !

I want to say a big thanks for testing, answering questions, commits, fixes, and general coolness. 
I haven't pulled in 3+ days (very unusual for me) - so to see the commit log was like toys from Santa.  Also want to thank kwatters for kind words and the whole MRL crew taking the time and care to answer questions with respect and thoughtfulness.  

And that's all I got to say about that ...
Peace Out ! (Drops the Mic)

I'm always learning things in MRLClub.  Recently, I've learned how 5 people can successfully work together simultaneously on a piece of code ..  Whoa !   Very cool.

Here is my MRLClub log :

Its a very different time from when I began my software development career.  The world has change.  When I started we scrolled our algorithms alone on parchment paper under candlelight.  When we were done the master monk lead engineer would convert our parchment to cards so they could process on the automated loom computer.
