comment How to store object in sqlite database?
DB4O is great in principle. It's super easy to use. BUT unfortunately it has many bugs and development/maintenance seems to have completely stopped. Very sad situation.

comment How to hide one item in an Android Spinner
Nice solution! But I think the tv.setVisibility(View.GONE); line is unnecessary. Commenting it out does not seem to make any (visual) difference, at least on Android 4.4.2/KitKit (on an LG/Google Nexus 4).

Has anyone actually tried this? Seems like it is not as straightforward as it sounds.

comment Why is the SD-card mounted to "/sdcard/external_sd" instead of "/sdcard" (or "/mnt/sdcard")?
Shame on Google for not providing an API call to unambiguously detect the mount point, or at the very least specify a "recommended" mount point (rather than leaving manufacturers to each invent their own). The Environment2 project on GitHub (thanks for linking to it) does ease the pain, but too bad the (extensive) documentation in the code is all in German.

comment Replacing characters in Ant property
Thanks! It turns out you can even drop the <filetokenizer/> bit. Your code works fine without it (at least on Ant v1.8.3).

comment Android 4.2 broke my encrypt/decrypt code and the provided solutions don't work
Is it safe to send the salt across the wire such that the same key can be generated on another machine? Of course I wouldn't send the password across, just the salt.
