This site was totally helpful when it came to explaining how to add a progress dialog. Using threads and handlers is totally the way to go:
But I had a problem because, like this other guy, I am an idiot, too:
I was relying too much on Eclipse when I had this error. I tried to use the code from the first website but kept getting an error about not being able to override handleMessage(). It kept telling me to remove the @Override clause. But doing that causes the progress dialog to never go away because the handler method never gets called. I had to import the “Message” library just like this other dude did. I was relying too much on Eclipse.
Last time I checked, the term “droid” is short for “android” and originated in the 1970s.
It’s disturbing when a corporation tries to regulate usage of natural language:
While making a new Android app, I kept receiving errors like UnknownHostException, null pointers, and unresolved hosts.
It turns out you need to add a permission to your app within the app’s manifest file:
uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.INTERNET” />
Massive props goes out to this site for helping me out:
Has anyone ever barbecued rice? If so, I wanna hear about it.
Hey party people,
I have a Sierra Wireless C885 Aircard. The 3G portion of it works fine. I can connect to 3G/EDGE/GPRS networks just fine. But I have tried inserting 2GB and 4GB micro SD cards in it to no avail. The memory card doesn’t get recognized in Mac and Win32 PCs. What’s wrong with it?
So I was sitting in an Internet shop today and needed to check what processes were running in the background. I hate using Internet shops because you never know what kind of viruses/virii and keyloggers may be lurking in the background.
But many shops disable ctrl-alt-del, thus preventing you from opening the task manager. I’m sure there is a way to do this from windows->start but I don’t remember.
But I found this useful tidbit of information…use tasklist and tskill to save your life. They work similar to ps and kill in Linux.

Every week I get people spamming my blog. Anyone have a solution to this?
