I didn't forget about the Cosmos comparisons... I've just been a li'l disappointed in the new series and it's getting hard to hide. Today, I wanna talk about a few things:

A few months ago, I posted a long shebab about how to build Android apps from the command line. Just ignore it. Here's the dilly:

If you enter your Android application's base path and run "android create project", you can generate a source tree (with the res/ directory), a manifest file, and a base Activity. Running "android update project" can add libraries to your project's properties file. Running "ant debug" or "ant release" will build your APK file. It, of course, requires Apache Ant</i> as a build tool, but that actually comes with the Android SDK bundle, too.

I'm tired of writing code that just writes and parses save text... For
Pocket Starfighter, I just threw model data in-line with the algorithms. After hearing years of "model-view-controller" preaching, it was actually cool to have everything in-line. It sucks for scalability and adaptability. I created JFlagCap with the idea that I'd never grow tired of creating tilesets. Granted, for something that elaborate, something external was the only way to go. But, I'm unlikely to have folks clamoring to add flight models to Pocket Starfighter.

Anyway, this was restored from draft, so I have no idea where else it was going to go.
