I'm the Grumpy Old Ape sometimes answering C++ questions on Stackoverflow.
Usually you will find me in the C++ Lounge of the Stack Overflow chat.

I occasionally retweet something on my Twitter account, and I'm known to even generate my own tweets once in a while.

Thanks a lot! Currently I lack the time to play with this, but I'll try ASAP.

This phone is not rooted. Would it be easier if it was? That ROM manager seems to be incompatible with this OS version.

comment QR scanner that doesn't want to access my contact list
@LarryGritz: I wholeheartedly agree. Why do I have to either slavishly follow some app writer's whim on what they want to access, or abstain from installing the app altogether? As long as I'm content with a QR reader not being able to exchange contact infos, I could use any QR reader if I only could tell the system to deny it access to my contact list. As it is, I either have to find one whose writer voluntarily excluded that feature or I have to voluntarily surrender my private data.

@SaintWacko: Well, that phone is two weeks old tomorrow. So far I'm sure I haven't yet rooted it. :) That leaves, however, the question of why the market says this isn't compatible. :(

@SaintWacko: Maybe. How would I know? What is a "custom ROM"?

Sigh. "Requires Android: 2.0 and up." I have 2.3.5, but the market says it's not compatible. Darn. What might be the problem?

Thanks, that at least explains the mystery to me (+1). I currently do not see the value in this, but I guess all of the app writers have long since rushed to add this feature and I am out of luck when I want one that does not want access to my contacts?
