I ported CUPSD to Android but have some problem initializing cupsd by
manually typing cupsd & in terminal. Cupsd alawys exits with error. I
haven't tried to start cupsd by adding service in init,rc due to some
technical difficulty. So just not sure is it  wrong to start a daemon
manually? Can somebody explains the difference of initing service from
within init.rc and initing service manually. Thanks.

1. Should I Be Using AsyncTask?

I have an app that stores gps data into a SQLite db. I want to 'play'
that data back. I was having trouble getting that to work until I
stumbled across Romain Guy's blog on painless threads -- thank you

Now that I got that to work, I want to do things like stop, pause,
backup, a little VCR. But the AsyncTask has that one-
time-use condition (which in practice means that I *can* replay if I
let the thread finish, leave and come back). But that's a little much
for the users to live with.

Question: is there a better way? Plain english answers greatly
appreciated! :)

Hi all,

I tried all mailing lists listed in the Android subcription web site
and all of them returned back with the error that their email does not
exist - I clicked on them and not copy them so there is no typo. Any
