So after a long hiatus of finally transitioning between some important stuff IRL, it's about time to take a look back on some of my coding projects.
What better way to start than to set up some fun infrastructure! With that in mind, I present my Jenkins server!
I wanted to join in with the rest of the internet today and do my part in spreading the word about the legislation that is SOPA and PIPA. For those of you who may (somehow) not be familiar with this legislation, they are the latest attempts by the powers that be within the United States government to stop piracy. While what they attempt to do is understandable, their methods as they stand to day would likely break the internet as we know it.
So I've been working hard on developing for ICS on the DX, and after a few weeks of rounding up bug fixes and code from all over the net, a thought occurred to me: why must this be the way of maintaining a device? Why do I have to scour forums and github repositories to find fixes that others have accomplished but I never got word of? This just won't do.
Well, it's been quite some time since I've posted here (almost 2 months is quite some time in my book). For those of you who are wondering, no, I didn't become re-addicted to Minecraft, regardless of how similar this 2 month hiatus is from the one that occurred last year around this time. The fact of the matter is that I'm still finishing up school, and this time of the year is always busy between working 20 hours a week, going to school full time, and being very active in several organization…
Today while browsing teh interwebz, I came across some information about how to build VLC media player for android. As someone who uses VLC quite a bit on my desktop, I was quite excited at the prospect of running it on my Android devices, so I went ahead and built a pre-alpha package for it!
I've decided to take the time to release the Bionic Bootstrap recovery that I have been using for my own developments so that others (especially developers) can get started on their own development efforts for the Bionic.
I want to make a few things clear about this release before simply dumping the files out. I've been reluctant to post this because recoveries are koush's area of expertise and he has more knowledge of these things. That being said, I've gotten enough feedback t…
So as many of you who are reading this have likely heard, after merely a week of being released, the much anticipated Motorola Droid Bionic has been obtained, root, fastboot, custom recovery, and now a pre-alpha boot of CyanogenMod 7!
I thought it would be appropriate to write up a post about how we got there in such a ridiculously short period of time! Let's start with how I got started on the Bionic.
So I've been AFK for awhile again... What can I say? Work has been hectic, so sue me. Actually, on second thought, I shouldn't make that suggestion, since it seems I can't go a day without reading some news about someone suing someone else over some ridiculous trademark or patent claim. Alright everyone, all together!
So I've been getting a lot of questions about where the hell I've been lately and I finally have the opportunity to let everyone know. I will keep this short and to the point (haha yeah right) wordy and poorly thought out while also attempting to let everyone know what to expect over the next few weeks.
So last night I got an invite into Google+, the new social networking apparatus that Google has put together, and I figured I would write about my basic impression of the more interesting features.
Circles are essentially a tagging mechanism for the people you add to your profile. You can create circles as categories of people (such as Friends, Aquantiences, Coworkers, etc), and then you can add people to as many of the circles as you feel is appropriate.
