Android and Eclipse, you are wank

So today’s challenge was to get the Android dev back up and running. Problem being last time I installed it was over a year ago so everything has moved on a bit in terms of version numbers. Android NDK was fine, Cygwin wanted to install about 45 gigs of crap including Apache so that needed a good talking to. Then Eclipse, what a pile of wank. All it ever does is want to restart and clean and build and clean and build and still come up with countless errors. By the end of the day I did manage to get it all to build. Well got it to build Beaver, then eventually got it to build the audio test example. Found a couple of Android specific bugs in it so finally got that sorted. Did find I need to do a couple of extras though to properly compile out the codecs if required.

We can apparently start on the mobile game we were doing again, I got as far as making it compile with the current libs. I guess I better get on with that at some point.

Walked the dog. Went to the gym, ran for sixty eight minutes. Bought cheese, ate cheese, also bought crackers. Had salad, may have crackers, may not.

And don’t talk to me about cleaners….lets just say that’s another one gone before even starting, that must be a new record.
