I made this thing a long time ago, and decided to actually put it out there in case people wanted to use it. 

It's super simple, but I may be willing to add stuff to it if people think it should have stuff. 
A simple drawing and painting app.

"A while back, the singular Roman Nurik released an open source live wallpaper called Muzei, which showcases famous works of art on your Android home screen and provides an API to integrate other image sources...Thanks to Muzei being in the public domain, anyone can see how the drawing of this logo is accomplished."

I find it amusing how Verizon plays this off as if they were the good guys! They have damn near the worst customer opinion in the wireless industry. This little temper tantrum will not help them one iota.

Rule of 5?

2014 smartphone sales:

1 Blackberry phone sold for every 5 Windows phones.
1 Windows phone sold for every 5 iOS phones.
1 iOS phone sold for every 5 Android phone.

Android FTW!

It's actually pretty cool that I played a central role on the Android platform side.

What's even better on the coolness scale is that as an application developer I can now write an app once and have it compatible with about a billion and a half devices, which is probably an unprecedented scale.

It's a good time to be in the mobile industry.
IDC's latest numbers on smartphone market share make it clear - the smartphone OS wars are pretty much over, and only two champions are left. In the green corner is Android, in the blue corner is iOS, and between them they accounted for 96.3% of smartphones shipped in 2014.

Excellent pizza on the downtown mall. A whole plethora of toppings from which to choose; they have some pretty fun combinations also, in case you get easily bored with the standard pizza fare.

Best breakfast food in the area. Bananas foster pancakes are maybe the greatest thing you could ever put in your mouth. Bring cash though, because they don't take cards.
