It certainly has cured my leg flu, warded off my appetite and left me a jolly calm sort of fellow. Can see why it might be highly addictive. Even had a nice little nap this afternoon, mid-conversation. Hope the leg flu doesn’t return as soon as my supply runs out. Weirdly, someone found my blog via google having searched for the terms “leg” and “flu”, so I guess I am not the only sufferer. Also, have been an efficient coder today, making 115 PayPal buttons for a website I’ve nearly completely overhauled, transforming it from a humble html site into a fully fledged php showboat. Watch this space to see it relaunched soon.
Sooner or later someone will point out that there is an alliterative theme in my pursuits: chess, cycling, cooking and coding. I have other interests and, yes, they mainly begin with the same letter!
The other main excitement of the day was not really convincing myself that I had bricked my Samsung Galaxy S. In fact, I just stupidly returned the damn thing to the stock rom in a fuzzy bid (that’ll be the diazepam again methinks) to cure a shared calendar glitch. Only later on did I discover that Titanium Backup – a great app for rooted android phones – would have cleared the calendar data for me, allowing me to reset it and win back my copy of my wife’s calendar on my phone. From the stock rom I then decided to try another rom and with the increased fuzziness things went downhill. However, since I can still boot into recovery, I will be able to achieve this. Just need a clear head. This is the sort of fun and games iphone users never have. Most of them think that they’re better off with loads more apps when in fact they need extra apps because Apple denies them flash and consequently many websites don’t work for them, with the result that they need specialist apps just to get the advantages of the internet. Anyway, I was running a beautifully modified rom from Tayutama. Get the latest Tayutama if you want to vastly improve on what Samsung offer as firmware for the Galaxy S. They make great hardware but hackers make even better software, surprise surprise. The reason for this is that there are always more hackers than proprietary employees. Really, I’m just waiting for the legendary Cyanogen to release a stable rom for the Galaxy S.
