Lucky that my friend found out about AndroVM just yesterday. When he told me about it and saw it in his PC how fast the virtual machine runs, I just had to download it, install it and use it as my test environment replacing the clunky, slow and resource intensive Android emulator.

AndroVM moving to a commercial product but do not fret because there will still be an open sourced version that does mostly what every operating system does.

It is blazing fast! Considering that my PC in the office is super damn slow, I had to resort to using an Android emulator running 2.3.1. If I used versions 3 until the latest, it will probably take me forever just to test my app.

Once I linked AndroVM as my test environment when deploying apps from Eclipse, it was simply a breeze.

They simply did a good job alright, running Android in a Virtual Machine. It helped me quite a lot because I could not do any testing on a tablet run device because I do not have one nor could I use an Android emulator on it because running Ice Cream Sandwich in a tablet emulator made my PC even slower.

To use AndroVM, you need to install Oracle’s Virtual Box then download the Android image file according to your choosing: phone or tablet.

By the way, since they are now a commercial product, AndroVM will now be called GenyMotion.

The nice thing about Java FX is how CSS can easily be used to style the user interface. Making rounded corners on a window looks tedious when done programmatically.

However, with the use of CSS, this can easily be done.

Easy, right?

Discovering the secrets held within the earth is an ongoing process that many people have been passionate about for generations. We’ve discovered an endless amount of compelling information by digging in the dirt, and we continue to hunt for new treasures buried within the most sandy depths.

Paleontologists and archaeologists make a career out of digging for special artifacts and ancient bones. While we’ve never existed during the same time as dinosaurs, we’ve certainly learned a great deal about the scaled giants through digs.

Tombs and secrets long buried have also opened our eyes to the mystique of civilizations and cultures we weren’t able to experience for ourselves. It’s in this way that digging provides a gateway for people to experience the past in a unique and visceral way. If it weren’t for unearthed information, so much of our history would be lost.

That’s why geophysical equipment is so important. Instead of having to rely on informed estimates, a device such as an earth resistivity meter will let you know what’s under the earth’s surface before the dig begins. utilizing electrodes that send charges across the ground, it’s able to print a readout that gauges exactly what is located at various depths within the soil.

The SuperSting R1 IP is an example of a portable version of such a device. It even features a programmable function that allows you to set measurements in memory for future use. This device is excellent for professionals in the field. It’s a great investment in your digs.
