I just received my new HTC One and installed Action Launcher. I'm trying to search for a way to get a shortcut to a contact added to my homescreen. I can only find widgets for "Direct Call" and "Direct Message" but nor for opening the contact. Is this a limitation because of the HTC Sense which is still installed and can this be somehow circumvented?

Why can 'darcs mv' not be used if the file was changed and the file was renamed at the same step? This happens quite often when working with an IDE and java if you move a class from one package to another: The file is moved and the first line of the file (the "package ...") is updated.

------ exec in new folder -----------
darcs init

#Add a new file 'file'
echo "Old content" > file
darcs add file 
darcs record

#Move it and change it at the same time
mv file newfile
echo "New content" >> newfile 

darcs add newfile

#Now darcs failes when telling it that the file was moved
darcs mv file newfile
Leads to:
darcs failed:  cannot move File file into newfile : did you already move it elsewhere?

Celebrating 100,000 installs of my "Today In History" Android application. If you haven't tried already check it out on the Google Play Store: It's free and ad-free. For the near future: Stay tuned as I'm currently developing an all new version which will (at least on recent Android versions) use newly available features: Completely updated UI with multi-column layout, faster downloads and much more.

Review for my "Today In History Widget":
The Gentlemens Choice: A true gentleman is always well informed, about the present, but especially the past. This app gives you all the known and not so well known history you SHOULD know. Remember the difference between a gentleman and a loser is knowledge, and this app gives you the power to be all you can and should be. Top shelf. Thanks Kurtis K. Cullen

I just released a new version of my 'Today In History' Android app. During the last year the app has evolved from a widget to a small application which allows you to select different sources for historic events. The focus of the app is still the widget but it supports many more features. The design is completely redone and the app contains a new widget for newer Android versions.

Check out the screenshots and install it from the Play Market, its completely free and ad-free:
