Or better, fax it back so the other party prints it out again.

Watch your language. Literally.

Speak into your watch and flip it over. The person you’re talking to can read what you said in their language, and respond in kind. The latest software update for Android Wear has Google Translate built in, so unless you speak 44 languages, your wrist can now speak more languages than your mouth. Read more: http://goo.gl/bTRakZ

Found some interesting (not good) behaviour in Drive API for Android (aka GDAA), perhaps someone else has experienced the same? Or at least, this info might help you avoid wasting some development time.

https://plus.google.com/+LindenDarling/posts/ApvdisFvgmx

Basically, permanently deleted files get seen via the API as normal, and you can add folders and files into them while the API indicates success, only fails when you write contents to a file (and that is as close as you can get to distinguishing, via the API, whether a folder is permanently deleted or not). Crazy right?!

Another important GOTCHA:
Somewhere, someone says "the Drive API for Android is limited in that it can only query on files created by your application". That's certainly not made very clear (it should be), and it's also ambiguous in that the reality is:
the Drive API for Android is limited in that only files made with the same APP_ID (as created in https://console.developers.google.com) and by the same (Google)User can be queried and manipulated

Dematerialisation in Android: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=183814

AppBarLayout dematerialises when CoordinatorLayout has it out of view and Snackbar displays and/or dismisses.

The media home page of Australia’s largest telecommunications company, Telstra, was pushing some malvertising https://blog.malwarebytes.org/news/2015/08/telstra-medias-homepage-pushes-malvertising/
Telstra home users may have been infected via a malicious ad on the ISP's home page.

Got it working now with v23 (DesignSupport, ADT, compile SDK), interestingly the fix for v23 doesn't fix the problem on v22.2.1. The CustomDashboardView above ViewPager was affecting the measurements without actually being visible o.0

Perhaps someone can help me out of this hole?

I'm developing what would otherwise be a simple text file upload in an Android app, using the Google Drive SDK for Android.

1) I'm not seeing folders being created in My Drive today, where I was seeing them created yesterday. Should I be concerned about that behaviour?
2) Despite not seeing folders when I look at My Drive, programmatically I receive DriveIds for the folders (2 folders, one is the parent of the other). It seems the folder creation steps are successful, however re-running will only find the first folder and the second is always created fresh o.0. Following creation of the folders, I create a newDriveContent which also seemingly goes successfully, I then write bytes to the OutputStream of the newDriveContents and createFile using it (with ExecutingOptions including a trackingTag, notifyOnCompletion set true, and CONFLICT_STRATEGY_OVERWRITE_REMOTE as well as a ResultCallback). The ResultCallback gives me a DriveId for the file, however the DriveEventService.onCompletion is always receiving STATUS_FAILURE. And as I said, I see absolutely no visual evidence of any folder or file created in My Drive.

Edit:
note: in (2) I was creating a newDriveContents to set the initial file data.
3) I've also tried createFile, grabbing the DriveContents from that, and then setting and uploading its data, again to no avail.

Edit:
Okaye! So I've made some sense of this (absolute nonsense):
When a folder has been 'permanently deleted' by a User via 'drive.google.com' it will still be seen as perfectly "normal" via GDAA  (someone at Google may want to look into that, because it constitutes retardedness [1]), i.e.:
folder is permanently deleted, yet
isRestricted: false,
isTrashed: false,
isExplicitlyTrashed: false,
isTrashable: true,
contentAvailability: 0,
isPinnable: false,
isDataValid: true

...furthermore, creating a folder within a permanently deleted folder yields SUCCESS. And going on to create a file within that folder that lives within a permanently deleted folder yields SUCCESS...it seems that writing to the contents of that file will always yield FAILURE, though lacking any kind of explanation as to why. The nested folder and file will exhibit flags akin to the permanently deleted root folder.

[1] I'd love to be wrong, speak up and correct me please!
