Wow. What ... sloth!

It's Feb 26th, 2011 and I'm trying to get back on the wagon for Android programming. Once again hitting the Android Wireless Application Development book. This time around I have a Nook Color to play around with.

I ran into some issues getting Eclipse 3.6 installed on my Win7 x64 machine. Turns out it's looking for the JDK in a spot different than where the x64 Java installer puts it. Yay. Found a workaround on the 'net where you export your Java node and put in references to Wow6432 or some sort. That worked. However, Eclipse 3.6 has issues with Content Assist... in that it takes upward to 30 seconds when you are typing something before it will show any methods. Not nice. Downgraded to Eclipse 3.5.1 and that cured that problem.

The plan is to hit B&N tomorrow and get together with a buddy to discuss an Android app we can work on. I'm thinking a port of an open source SNES would be a good candidate.

That's it for now.
