Pork Dumplings and Mie Goreng

So this page/blog/thing was originally supposed to be food as well, but it really hasn't had any of that (although not much anything else either). I decided it was time to change this.

I also decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to train my girlfriend to make her own dumplings, because I always have to make them and while they are nice they also take a while to prepare.

Android - expand internal phone memory

so this is for Rak cuz he's rooting his phone atm, but anyone else as well. Continuing off from the "how to root an android phone" post this one is getting more internal memory for your phone by pushing some data to the SD card.

After Froyo(?) it was possible to move some application data to the SD card in the applications menu, but this can cause things to freeze and die and widgets (e.g. clock) to stop is pretty dodge so don't. A better way is to map internal memory to the SD so that the phone doesn't realise it isn't internal, creating a "virtual memory" area on your memory card.

In the previous post I talked about how to partition your SD card, and this is where that gets used.
