Android Development

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

Last week I copied my DB helper from the Google Android Notes Tutorial.  I also tweaked it for my needs.  Well when I took a look at it again I decided that I need to tweak it some more.  Basically I needed to change a field and add a field.  Updating my db helper class and updating my application class was pretty easy as well.

I am going to try it out next week :)

First Lego League Today

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

We went to the first lego league today and it was fun and exhausting.  We ended up finishing 4th out of 26 teams.  I am pretty happy with that.

We really need to figure out how to make the robot move in a straight line.

Today’s the big FLL day

We’re going to our FLL competition today.  If we can successfully execute all of our programs we will earn 135 out of 400 points.  It will be exciting!

Yesterday we received the new First Lego League Power Puzzle Kit

We started putting it together today.  The team was very disappointed by the look of the mat this year.  They thought the rainbow gave it a very feminine look.  We put two of the complex models together.  They are both very cool.  One of them is a lift-able home that uses a gear train to lift the home.  The second was a core drilling rig, which seems like a very cool ship.  We also put two models together.  One of them was a lap top computer and the other was an underground reservoir.

Fun… Fun… Fun…
