Dreaming of Electric Sheep

 Hello All,

Very "newbie" Android SDK... I am interested in begging android development.
I have pair of related applications  in mind that I want to develop rather
quickly.  I tend to learn better when I'm learning while actively working
toward my "goal app", and I've got Eclipse and the SDK installed and
running, so I decided to jump right in.  

In hindsight, that probably wasn't the best thing to do, since I don't know
much Java or Linux. I've been more of a Networking, SQL, VBA, VB.NET, MS
kinda guy.  But I have a (now distant) background in several other
languages, so I thought it could not be that hard (ha ha on me).  I quickly
found out that I'm not familiar with the tools (eclipse? Emulator?) nor the
concepts (Activity?  What?).  

What I want to do sounds relatively simple.

App 1:  Load at startup, Read some system values (Time, GPS, etc), write to
a TXT file on the SD card.
App 2:  Loaded manually, read from the TXT file, display textual information
in a tab form.  Email the TXT file.

So far, I have added a tab form and 3 blank activities.  And I've got errors
already. (R.drawable.ic_tab_Help can not be resolved) etc...

I know that's kind of a overly general, wide-scoped kind of request, but any
help would be much appreciated.

1. Issue in android:duration in frame animation


In Frame Animation, in <item> tag, when i am putting
android:duration="5", its not working. 15ms is the minimum which i
tried and working. Is it a bug in Android ?. Anybody else got the same
kind of problem.


2. Is Android browser supports Content-Encoding : gzip ???

AFAIK you can't access gzip via Android OS, because your webserver
delivers a Content audio/x-mpegurl.
