How not to charge nokia 6230, part II

I thought I found a way to charge 6230 from the usb after _long_ google session... according to http://www.walrus.com/~raphael/html/usb_charge.html diode is needed. Unfortunately, my 6230 disagrees: if I add the led to original charger, it still works, but if I try it from USB port, I get "not charging" message.

Nokia seems to have some notices about "pirate charges" :-(. Hey, nokia, this is _my_ cellphone, not yours. Seems like pulsing voltage is needed and 6230 actually checks for that :-(.

And a small message for Pete: swap partitions are still useful these days if you want to use suspend-to-disk.
