Last weekend I tried to actually get my dart chess application to run on my cellphone and I learned that the dart2js compiler does not work on Froyo/Gingerbread browsers. So, I fixed the compiler to work on those older browsers. My fix allows Dart to run on about 85% of Android phones. I'm currently working with the google developers to get my patch applied.

Romney got five votes from Nevada, they thought he was going to get six. I was surprised Romney even got five.

I'm starting to get interested in Google+, I never signed up for facebook and I've only tweeted a couple of times, but today I got into Google+ and started adding some people I'm interested in.
I found this great Pink Floyd video from Wesley Crusher, erm I mean Wil Wheaton's page. What a classic! I had never heard of this song before.
I'm getting better at making curry, lots and lots of spices make so much of a difference in your food. The best thing about Indian food is all those wonderful spices!

Time to destroy Apple once and for all.
Apple's recent lawsuit victory is the beginning of the end for Apple. It disgusts me to no end when I see a pathetic company like Apple try to use a bunch of guns provided by the state to prevent the people from freely buying a competitor's product.
Good bye Apple. You're history.
I'm buying one of these...anyone who doesn't is a fool. Why? Because the last time I went to Best Buy, a tablet like this costs $750, and this one is only $200.
Looks like Google is taking the gloves off now.

Guess what arrived yesterday...
The only thing I don't like about it is that it uses MTP which isn't supported so well in Linux. I think it has something to do with Microsoft.

Oops, never mind about the MTP support in linux. I actually have all the software I need installed, I was just looking for MPT and not MTP.
I feel like such a newb.

Google+ is totally awesome on the Nexus 7.
Facebook sucks, I'm so glad I never signed up for that crap. I think Facebook stock is going straight to $0.

As I mentioned in this post, I made a contribution to the Dart programming language.
Google mentioned my contribution on the latest Episode of Dartisans.
Although now that I have my Nexus 7, I don't really care about those old android browsers any more.
