comment EC2 autoscaling does not put name (tag) on servers
No, never really bothered to deal with it. It hasn't been an issue for us though. Sorry I couldn't be of any more help!

comment Cannot Login to Amazon with Ruby Mechanize
So that definitely works for amazon.com. I was trying to login to developer.amazon.com rather than the main website. I wasn't able to get it working through Mechanize, but was able to get it working through the Watir and Headless gems

comment Cannot Login to Amazon with Ruby Mechanize
I'm trying to do something similar but am not having much success. The code as written above will still redirect you back to the login page. Any ideas?

comment Android: display popup without a context
I'm trying to load some C++ libraries for use with JNI (the System.loadLibrary() call). That has to happen in a static {} block and is done before anything ever happens in the app. That's the part that's throwing the exception. I need to catch the exception here and redirect them to try to redownload the app. Problem is, this happens before onCreate() is called on my main activity and I don't have any context yet.

How do I launch in to the Activity without a Context?

comment Android: display popup without a context
So, yes, it would be the first screen that shows up, but I don't have a context here. This exception is thrown before the main activity gets created.

comment Android: display popup without a context
The problem I'm having is that the System.loadLibrary() call is throwing the UnsatisfiedLinkError exception (which is possible). From what I've read, one reason for this is a broken/corrupted install from the Google Play store. I want to display a message to the user about this and redirect them to reinstall.

Do I have to actually create the Activity in code too? How would I go about calling it to invoke the AlertDialog.Builder code?

comment Json.NET preserving native types
I actually can't reliably determine what's coming over the wire. One of the parts of the JSON blob is a user defined section that could really have just about anything inside of it. There's no real way for me to match that to anything.
