 Are you trying to purchase your own app? I got the same error when I
did, but not when I purchased someone else's.

 Yup, it appears as though you can't buy your own app!  :)

 Heh... I guess it would create some problems if you tried to purchase
an app with your own account for, say, 1 dollar... So your account is
then $-1.00, Google gets $0.30 and you get the other $0.70, bringing
your own account up to $-0.30. Then if you return the app you would be
refunded $1.00, and Google would take away your $0.70 profit... and
you would be back to $1.00... but it would probably spawn some
infinite loop and all hell would break loose on the Android Market (oh
wait, it already has).

Suggestion: Displaying the message "You may not purchase your own
goods from the Market" would be much more informative than "A server
error has occurred." (Thus avoiding the developer hitting Retry a
bunch of times!) :-)

in a FrameLayout with two children ImageView and EditText, is there a
way to control by code at runtime the position of the later EditText?
I'm trying to create a floating widget (EditText) much like a toast
but that changes its x,y offsets .

<FrameLayout android:id="@+id/res_FrameLayout"
android:layout_gravity="center" />

                        <EditText android:id="@+id/floating_edittext"
                        android:singleLine="true" android:ellipsize="end"
                        android:textSize="18sp" android:textStyle="normal"
                        android:editable="true" />


in the activity class ctor:

EditText mFloatingEditText = (EditText)
ViewGroup.LayoutParams mlayoutparamo =
mlayoutparamo.height = 40;
mlayoutparamo.width = 200;
mFloatingEditText.setLayoutParams(mlayoutparamo);   // this works!

mFloatingEditText.offsetLeftAndRight(30); // does not work!
mFloatingEditText.offsetTopAndBottom(50); // does not work!


2. My own PVLOGGER layer

For the purpose of performance I had to shut off logging by forcing
But I need to debug in the same time. So I was wondering how easy it
is to create my own PVLOGGER_INST_LEVEL layer that spits out
exclusively my own logs.

Thank you community for any hint
