W.O.D. Run 1 mile, stop every minute and do 10 air squats, 10 pushups, and 10 sit-ups. Record your time and sets. I'll do mine after work, and record it here. Share your results if you want to join me.

+Simon Osborne use the competition with yourself for motivation. Come back to this same workout in a couple weeks, and compare your results.

+Glen Shurtz Yup, just make sure your resistance is sufficient to keep your heart rate up.

Finally got +Stacy Shanks  to say "Bone the chicken" (long running thing in this house). So I decided that for every +1 I get on this, I'll donate $1 to her Airman's Stockings program. Get to clicking!

It's on YouTube now, so likes on there also count as $1 each http://youtu.be/IM0--Mo_V3A

How-To SU
Guidelines for problem-free su usage

I have released an article and sample code detailing the best ways to call su, as well as common problems and how to avoid them. If you are an app developer making su calls, this is meant for you to read.

It originates from a lot of reversing and going through code of root using apps that would randomly crash (either with SuperSU or Superuser) and working with a fair number of developers to solve these problems in their apps. The goal is to make all root app developers aware of these issues, so these problems will be avoided in new apps and updates to existing ones.

Please share this post and help getting all root apps to behave :)

+Jorrit Jongma I agree that IntentService is a simple and easy solution, it doesn't block the UI thread and makes sure that only one job is running at a time. But as soon as you need something different 2 months later then you're running into troubles. With a service you have all the extra efforts like creating a new thread and make sure your service is stopped properly, handle multiple calls to it, but you have more control.

+Stephen Erickson IMO the UI thread should not be blocked at all. Even if it's only 1 second, it's still enough to break the app's usability and make it appear sluggish. That's not the fault of your library but the developer could fall for it easily.
