I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Trouble installing Cyanogen on Galaxy S II using recovery console method
@MatthewRead: I see the 2 drives, but when I was trying this, it wouldn't let me put anything on the internal one. If I tried putting a file on the root, it would silently fail, if I tried one of the folders, it would say I didn't have permission. Not sure that's still the case, but I haven't tried since CM7 up and running.

Much thanks. Still not sure how to put a file there over USB, but using ASTRO File Manager, I made it happen.

Didn't the Milestone ship with LauncherPro? Try something else.

Are you using the standard keyboard, or some third party keyboard?

comment Is the Nexus One battery charged when connected to a PC via USB?
@Matt: The USB standard says 500mA is the max current a device can expect from a USB port. Yes, some ports these days are capable of delivering more, but they are not required to.

comment Can I get Swype on my Thunderbolt
The "Sorry this is not an android phone" message means that your user agent for your browser is not set to Android. I encountered this before, and resetting the user agent back to default solved the problem.

comment Can't write an SMS for some of my contacts
@XGouchet: Really? You prefer the default SMS over Handcent? You're the first person I know that's said that. Everyone I know that's tried Handcent loves it.

comment Is there a way to get a “zoom balloon” (like on the iphone) when sliding over a text input field?
What phone and version of Android are you running? Some alternative methods are available, but it's dependent on the hardware and software.
