What a Terrible Failure
 
Every statue in Brazil. I'm speechless. I thought Germany would win, but 5-0? In Brazil? At the half!?

So, I realized that the network (BSNL) is very slow, since couple of days.
I thought it was some weird technical issue, and it will pass off after some time, or so I though!

Looks like BSNL may have taken an feather out of FCC's new hat. 

I was alerted yesterday about the pending bill (due for 26th), I thought it could wait.
But it seems, they may be throttling the network for the users with a pending bill.

Here's is some tests I did before and after the bill was paid:
yesterday:
1. Github: wget of 12 images tooks 4 tries (with script). overall it took around 2 min or so. all images around 2.7K each
2. Loading most of sites took around 12-15 seconds with average of 5 retries. over 2-3 min.
3. some sites loads fast: http://bsnl.in loads in ~ 2s, http://google.co.in loads in ~ 1s, banking sites ~ 3s.
4. video chat and youtube, falls out of the sky dead! (even on lowest resolution)
today:
No hickups:

loaded https://mybeautifulearth.withgoogle.com/ (full of images)
with ~ 20 sec for loading entire page on two browsers simultaneously.(no cache), video chat works fine.

I cannot confirm if it was a sincere problem in the network or not, I may have to wait for a month to repeat this experiment.
If this turns out to be true, then it's truly disturbing.

Oh! The irony.

I guess FCC forgot the saying "don't $h!t where you eat".
 
This is how you win.
NeoCities finds FCC's internal IP block, throttles connections to dial-up speed.

My mistake. The desktop to desktop is just the chrome extension. I have yet to try it from Android. I have used teamviewer for so long I didn't think about it. Thanks.

I don't want a walled garden, but I also think something needs to be done here.

A complete scam shouldn't be able to reach the #1 chart spot without getting vetted in at least some way, after being on the Play Store for over a week.

+Android Developers shouldn't a lint warning be shown when an incompatible android.R.attr is used as value?

I believe this is a missed case. Can you please check?

Ref: https://developer.android.com/reference/android/R.attr.html

PS: bug reported: http://b.android.com/73029

PPS: another bug: intention not working as intended: http://b.android.com/73036 (too lazy to create another post on this)

Why isn't there a life-cycle for the card?

I'll quote some possible scenarios where this may be useful:

* preserving the state of CardExpand
* removing listeners that may be created by the card.

I can extend the Card and implement this myself, but seems quite tedious if it's required to do in multiple projects

Sorry for the monstre delay.
Your code can work, but I am not convinced to use the view to store this kind of info.
I would use the card model with a parcelable interface.

Hello, I have a problem. The "chrome-remote-desktop" folder does not exist in ~ /. Config so there is also the host file.
Any tips?
