The second year of platycodon planting update

GNU software often comes with a large set of documents in texinfo format, which can be typesetted to a real book. For example the Gnus Manual has over 500 pages, full of fun and humor. Having a mobi version on my Kindle would be quite handy.
Android Service with dynamic arguments

Android “init” can do a lot of things, including “on property change” trigger; one can image some applications use this to implement an ad-hoc IPC. One example is the system/libnetutil that monitors the “init.svc.dhcpcd” property to detect whether dhcpcd is running […]
Root your Phone with just 1-Click

AndroidDev: Recent progress on Gallery3D
Gallery3D is the gallery application released with Éclair, contributed by Cooliris. This application heavily uses OpenGL to render the scenes. It looks great on Nexus One. But 0xdroid does not yet support hardware accelerated 3D graphics and rely on libagl to rasterize the 3D graph.

Created a 4096 bit GPG key to replace my 1024 bit one
In light recent new attacks against SHA-1 [1,2], and the NIST guidance on 1024 bit keys and SHA-1 hashes [3,4], I have decided to move to a new OpenPGP key of a larger size. As such, I will be slowly transitioning away from my old key.
