Downloading the ADT Plugin

Use the Update Manager feature of your Eclipse installation to install the latest revision of ADT on your development computer.<>

  1. Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software….
  2. In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter “ADT Plugin” for the Name and the following URL for the Location:
  3. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.Note: If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can’t be established, click OK.
  4. When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

Configuring the ADT Plugin

After you’ve successfully downloaded the ADT as described above, the next step is to modify your ADT preferences in Eclipse to point to the Android SDK directory:

    1. Select Window > Preferences… to open the Preferences panel (Mac OS X: Eclipse > Preferences).
    2. Select Android from the left panel.

You may see a dialog asking whether you want to send usage statistics to Google. If so, make your choice and click Proceed. You cannot continue with this procedure until you click Proceed.

  1. For the SDK Location in the main panel, click Browse… and locate your downloaded SDK directory.
  2. Click Apply, then OK.

I went with the defaults, accepted all the agreements, didn’t send usage statistics to google, and just installed the 4.0 branch, not the 2.1 stuff. Maybe I’ll add that later, 97% of phones sounds like a good choice.

Install a Platform

To run the Hello World application, you need to install at least one Android platform in your SDK environment. If you have not already performed this step, you need to do it now.

To install a platform in Eclipse:

  1. In the Android SDK and AVD Manager, choose Available Packages in the left panel.
  2. In the right panel, expand the Android Repository list to display the components available for installation.

Create an AVD

In this tutorial, you will run your application in the Android Emulator. Before you can launch the emulator, you must create an Android Virtual Device (AVD). An AVD defines the system image and device settings used by the emulator.

To create an AVD:

  1. In Eclipse, select Window > Android SDK and AVD Manager.
  2. Select Virtual Devices in the left panel.
  3. Click New….The Create New AVD dialog appears.
  4. Type the name of the AVD, such as “my_avd”.
  5. Choose a target.The target is the platform (that is, the version of the Android SDK, such as 2.3.3) you want to run on the emulator. For this tutorial, choose the latest platform that you have installed and ignore the rest of the fields.

Set the theme of your site to the mobile one, go into current theme settings, change the width to 100% and the color to whatever you like. Smooci is just like any normal WordPress plugin, you activate it in plugins and then find it’s options under Settings> Smooci. 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.

Even though the new Galaxy Nexus is coming out this month, it has a 5MP camera and that is not going to cut it. So I thought the battery had died when it hit the water. Then it went through the washer, full cycle.

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.
