a rant on my birthday

Right folks, it’s time for a little rant methinks.

I really did have a good birthday with my family here in Scotland.
It is however shocking that NONE of my so-called family in Germany (and i am NOT talking about my biological family, Ilse Stein and Kathrin-Jennifer Stein), except for my father, have took the time to even say congratulations on my birthday. The same goes for a lot of my so-called friends IRL/FB.

That is why I have decided to proceed with the “Big Culling of Friends 2017” and effectively have removed E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E that has not took the time to say even one or two words on this day.

Some might construe this as petty or even ‘nasty’ but here is the bottom-line. Why should I surround myself with people who have not even got the common decency to take 1 minute of their day for someone else?

If I have upset someone with my action(s), I can only say, “tough”.

I am DONE surrounding myself with people who cannot spare a minute for a ‘friend’ and/or ‘family-member’, I am trying very hard to improve my life and myself and this includes getting rid of emotional dead-weight and selfishness of other people.

If someone wants to comment or discuss this, that’s fine, I am always open to a constructive debate but I will not feed into other peoples selfishness.

Have a nice 1st of August and peace out

Little changes

Hello folks,

 

aside from the obvious change of the theme on this site, I had to also re-install the actual WP install as it was runnning sluggish and had issues with the aching that was going on in the background.

These issues should now be sorted out and I would hope that the experience is a lot smoother when visiting this site.

I am also about to upload another YouTube Video which will finally represent S1E2 of my FTB:Infinity Adventures.

I have also managed to get my partner in crime involved in this and she will be joining us in the future on this channel.

At the moment we still need headsets to be able to record our commentaries etc while streaming but that will come soon 🙂

GAAAHHH Technology!!!

I have fought with my phone (Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro) for the last few days.

I was actually trying to install a custom rom named “CyaNoGen Froyo” (Android 2.2), because unfortunately SE have decided to stop updating the Software for this phone.

Being stuck at Android 2.1 means most and foremost, not being able to use the app2sd facility. That, in turn, means that all apps are getting installed into the rather meager internal memory of the phone. Seeing that I got a 8GB SD card in that phone, that seems rather stupid, if i could install most apps onto the sd instead 🙂

After a lot of googling, research, and painstaking recoveries of the phone I finally found the solution to use App2sd on stock SE rom (as of time of writing : 2.1-update1)

Step 1 : Partition your card to contain (at least) 2 partitions, one for your normal day to day data (like pictures, music etc) and the second to actually contain the installed apps. (Thx Taylor Wimberly from androidandme.com for this rather conclusive how-to)

Edit: Instead of creating the second partition as ext2, you have to go for fat32 with the X10 Mini Pro. Apparently this phone doesn’t support ext2/3/4 . Doesn’t make a difference tho, it works just as well.

Step 2 : Download Link2SD from Android Market and start it. You get asked what format the 2nd partition on your sd-card has and you point to fat32. Press the Left Key (Menu) and “Filter” the apps by user.
Press Menu again and choose “Multi-Select”

Check the Apps you want to move, press “Menu” again and choose “Create Link”

Now have patience and all the chosen apps will get moved (will take a couple of minutes, depending on how many apps you installed/chose)

Go into the Settings of Link2d, check “Auto link”, that makes sure that any newly installed app, get automagically moved into the sd card.

DONE

peace out
Sebastian
