Then it went through the washer, full cycle.

I waited for four days before even trying it. It seemed like forever. It turned on, but wouldn’t charge the battery. So I thought the battery had died when it hit the water. Good enough guess. Ordered a new battery and waited for a few more days. The battery arrived, and I plugged it in. Same deal, wouldn’t charge. Something got fried in the charging circuit. Game over. I will give a try at getting it repaired, but for now, I need a new phone.

So I went and got a new one. Yup, the exact same one. Even though the new Galaxy Nexus is coming out this month, it has a 5MP camera and that is not going to cut it. The 8MP camera on the Galaxy S2 rocks! I take better pictures on it than on my real camera. The Galaxy Nexus will apparently get Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). That sounds great, but in a few months, that will not matter, So will the Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S2 is a good phone. Battery life is good, and it doesn’t run hot for what I do.

Notice that I also moved the container div to inside the loop to get it to display properly. Upload the theme you want to use for mobiles to your wpcontent/themes directory.

I am using Android 2.3.3 with Polaris office on a Samsung Galaxy S2, but it shouldn’t be too much different as long as you have an Excel program. Out in the field farming last year, we kept track of each dump into the cart. Take six columns labeled Date, Bin number, Pounds, Bushels, Crop, and Field. This is saying take the value from it’s column C row 3 and divide it by 50. Layed out the columns with Crop, Pounds, Bushels, and Kilograms.

Microprocessors / Microcontrollers – On this section, my Instructor explained we may spend a bit more study time on Microcontrollers, since they are getting used for a lot of applications lately. Things I don’t want to forget, study guides, exam scores, links etc… Since the brain can only store so much information, I figured I am going to need somewhere for the rest of it to go.

The DC collector resistance is simply the collector resistance, where the AC collector resistance is the collector resistor in parallel with the load resistance. The amplifier conducts for the full 360 degrees of the input cycle, always in the linear region, and the output wave is 180 degrees out of phase with the input.
