 not to sound self-serving but, in the last couple days, i've had a
few emails from people commenting on a wiki page i put up a while back
on how to install android on ubuntu 10.04: 

not sure why the sudden flurry of interest (did someone link to it?)
but if that page is helpful to anyone, you're welcome to it.

  i haven't looked at it in a few weeks, perhaps i should verify that
it's still correct and if anyone wants to add anything to it, drop me
a note.  (i'm probably going to end up moving it out of the wiki and
under the tutorials tab on my web site soon, but i'll put in a
redirection link.)

  anyway, if you find any typoes, let me know.

1. getting the browser to use localhost in airplane mode

Hi All,

I have been using an application called ankimini that is basically a
flash card application using ase and python.  To cut a long story
short it initiates a server that listens on and you
then view the flash cards using the browser.

This all works fine until you lose connectivity or switch on airplane
mode, then the browser complains that "This application requires
network access" even though I am only
going to

It looks like the browser checks if you are online before going to the
next page, regardless of what it is, but waits for a minute or so to
see if a connection is established before giving the: you need to be
connected error.

I tried another browser (dolphin) and it was similar, it says
something along the lines of: the page will continue being loaded once
you are back online.

If you have any idea how you can get the browser to go to localhost
when not connected please let me know.
