Okay, I know you just wanted to obfuscate your data, but a Vigenère cipher does not work when most of your data file is whitespace. #TrueStory   #BadAppliedCrypto

A book on SELinux in Android was just published; an area sorely lacking in content thus far. I was honored to be asked to write a foreword for it!

It looks like LastPass is using up an average of 230MB and running 100% of the time if it's configured as an accessibility service and with the floating bubble option. Have you guys looked at slimming this down? Ideally it should be around 35MB.

You can check the "Settings -> Developer Options -> Process Stats" to see what I'm talking about.

I've been experimenting with OpenSCAD and have created my first part! It's a grommet for the central hole of the dual extruder plate where the wires are routed. It might still need a bit of tweaking, but, as a programmer, I'm loving OpenSCAD.

They're both white. The one on the right just has a white case in addition (Ringke if you're curious).

For some reason I found this Argentina fan's reaction to Messi missing the free kick to be somewhat hilarious.

This is a really slick testing framework for spotting problems in your networking usage. Highly recommended for every developer to test their app.

If you want to use the newest version of Conscrypt, the OpenSSL-based security provider, from your Android app, check out the new ProviderInstaller API in the Google APIs.

Excellent gourmet New York style thin crust pizzas that will satisfy thee appetite of anyone that had lived outside of Hong Kong. The cappuccino is excellent and the view of the waterfront provides the perfect backdrop in which to sip it.

The hot roast beef sandwich was good, but the pain au chocolat was like a loaf of bread. The atmosphere is what keeps it at 3 stars. A nice place to sit inside or outside.

One of my favorite places to hang out. The staff is friendly and the pastries are always fresh and tasty. Get there early if you want one of their awesome croissants.
