Android notes

It was bad idea to change the hostname. sl4a mysteriously stopped working. sl4a is now single most important application on my android, because I use it to launch ... shells into debian chroot. So now I'm stuck looking at "localhost".

Warning when application is unresponsive seems like good idea -- it forces developers to make their apps responsive. But... then you load the system up. For example by offlineimap mail sync. And you get the
warnings from random applications ("Process com.google.process.gapps is not responding", wait/force exit) quickly followed by bug reporting process itself being reported as unresponsive. Ouch. Is there easy way to disable this or at least increase timeouts?

(And yes, this means I turned G1 into yet another Unix machine.)
