If I find something interesting on the web that I want to refer to again, or if I write something up that might become a proper blog post someday I often save it as a text file into one of a logical series of directories on my machine.

These files on my local machine are occassionally syncronized with this site. I try to give credit where credit is due whenever the text is not my own.

This site is RSS enabled.



Android hosts file

Using adb shell I could get to the android file system on my rooted device, but I couldn't edit any files because the file system is mounted as read only. I found this on stackoverflow:

Simply change ro to rw and add the remount option

# mount -o rw,remount /system

Once you are done making changes, you should remount with the original readonly.

# mount -o ro,remount /system
