Your code is easier to read than someone else's code.

Statusbar is not located in /system/system... in fact statusbar is not called statusbar or any derivative, Statusbar is called framework_res.apk and ironically enoughis under /system /system /framework.....

[ does not equal {

Way to go, brother PB! We should never get too old to learn something new! My 99 year old, bed ridden, step great-grandmother taught me that one... many years ago!

Today I learned that the rough draft of my project that I thought was due tomorrow was actually due last week wednesday. I wrote it up and turned it in as quick as I could. I wrote the due date on the wrong day on my calendar, now I have to pray that my professor won't dock me too much for turning it in almost a week late.

Don't mention BlackHawks! If I hear anymore about that the rest of this week, it will be too much!


Not you guys fault. Illinois is the Land of Vanity plates. Guess what the newest one is? Yep! Drives me crazy.

Going to see the Wings take on the Ducks this Saturday. Can't wait! Also a Bruins fan, my friend! Oh...and I learned that sometimes for no good reason, Schneider trucks like to lay down and take a nap in the middle of US-30 Suspect

I learned that 3 sanchos for lunch with beans on the side at Carlos O'kellys is too much for me. It kinda lays low with you for the rest of the afternoon. A Coors remedied that once I got home. Errp! excuse me, guess I'd better have another. Or better yet a good ole glass of Forty creek. Very Happy

Well, I started learning Sitting on the Dock of the Bay on guitar today, I learned I probably coulda/shoulda been in college earlier, but I also reminded myself of something I learned years ago, everything happens for a reason. If I had gotten in earlier, I probably wouldn't have gotten to say goodbye to my mom in person. Her passing has helped me learn nothing is forever, you can't put off life for tomorrow, because tomorrow isn't a given, it's a gift.

A lot of ongoing learning happening in my life.. now it's time to listen to Townes Van Zandt and perhaps some Leonard Cohen, and ponder life over a pipe.

sorry to hear of your mom's passing at such a young age for you. I pray you'll be blessed with loving memories in the years ahead. Life is truly a gift. How we live it is solely our responsibility.

Happy... don't ponder to much... you'll become an old man before your time.


The day is very early.. only one he forty minutes old, but I already learned something ...
Two framework_Res.apk in your ROM causes less damage than no framework _Res.apk..
lol

You'd think conflicting commands would screw with the CPU way more than no command, but it ain't so. With no command every dependancy goes into an endless loop, with two commands it just uses the one present at boot... I am tempted to boot with both present just to see what happens.

I have a little secret:

I too am a fantasy hockey geek. (Currently in pole position out of eleven in my league!)

Now that I am nursing a broken wing, I will be sitting out most of this season as far as playing goes. I don't play in a checking league, but it gets pretty physical anyways. Dag nab it! Maybe some pick-up this spring, depending on my how my arm feels. Oh well...

Hockey fans will like this one... the name of my fantasy team:

The Cup Checkers

Hmm... as far as what I learned today.... uhmm, wait.... ya, already knew that... let's see... oh! Never, ever, tease the dog when you are naked.

Happypipester, I too am so sorry for the loss of you mother. I am fortunate enough to still have mine... and my daddy too. Though I know I will be faced with it some day, I cannot imagine life without either of them!! My heart breaks for you... and, my prayers are offered for you, my brother!! Wink

lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

OMG at the mental picture I got from that!!!!
lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Today, I learned that when it comes to family, the words "forever" and "never" are not necessarily as everlasting as their "normal" definitions may infer. My 21 year old son who has had no contact with me in over two years... and, vehemently vowed to "never" have anything to do with me for the rest of his life... emailed me!! And, it would actually appear that he is straightening himself and his life up!!

I've also learned that I am the granddaddy to this beautiful little blue eyed angel named Jessie:



And, in Mid May 2011, I will be a granddaddy again!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy May God guide my footsteps in such a way that they always lead theirs down the proper pathway.

I don't care to go into the sorted details. But, I would ask that you, my brothers, keep him, his family and our relationship in your thoughts and prayers!

Beautiful Grand daughter you have there Beebz, cherish her and your son. Family is so very important and sometimes we only realize that when it's too late. Never and forever are both relative terms and your connectedness to your son is enshrined in both the physical vessel that serves as your mundane vehicle in this life as well as your spirit, however you may perceive that to be.

The official unemployment rate held steady at 9.6%, but the so-called underemployment rate, which includes labor-force dropouts and part-timers who would rather have a full-time job, surged to 17.1% from 16.7%. John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics—whose call for a negative payrolls number cited here was right on the money—further adjusts the underemployment rate to count folks who have been out of the labor force a year, who don't get counted among "discouraged workers" by the government. By his tally, true underemployment hit 22.5% in September, up from 22% in August, and a new high for the cycle but not one to crow over.

That really is not good news to learn today! The SA official unemployment rate is around 25% but the true number is definitely much higher. Part of the problem is that a lack of basic skills make millions of these functionally unemployable. Another problem will be the half-million school leavers entering the job market next year with no new jobs being available.
