It was a long time since I posted something here now, but I have had nothing to post really and just forgot about it. Here’s a recent picture, one of my favorites of my ride, can’t wait until summer!

I visited the Wheels magazine Classic Car show at Barkarby Airport last weekend to look at some muscle cars. There were ofcourse most classic cars, but also some nice modern cars. Here are some pictures, ofcourse my Dodge Charger was also there :).

Back in the day when I was playing Counter-Strike and attending and arranging LANs and tournaments we used to make CS movies and roadtrip movies that were very popular. I decided to upload them to YouTube. This is very much walking down memory lane for many of us, enjoy :). NoM powah!

An Android phone will scan your entire memory card for music and images and display them as available media in the players and albums, but maybe you don’t want to show all media but only specific folders. There is a solution for this. To hide media in a specific folder from the player apps do this:

  1. Windows: Open notepad and save an empty file as filename “.nomedia”. Linux: In a terminal window create a file called “.nomedia” by typing “touch .nomedia”.
  2. Connect your Android phone by USB and copy the file into all folders you wish to hide from the media scan.
  3. Done.

The media (music, images and movies) contained in this folder will now be ignored and not show up in your MP3 or movie player on the phone. To access and play them you can use a file manager, like Astro File Manager.

I will have great fun with this phone and with can do so much, no limit with seems. Top notch! I’m on a horse.
