Beginning android development. The resources on android site seem really good. Using Eclipse IDE with the ADT. Also not done Java in anger for about 4 years so this could be fun.

Watching Learning Android tutorial very useful for beginners like myself!

Install Ruby on Rails Ubuntu 10.10

Between this and this was very easy to setup Ruby on Rails environment on Ubuntu. Absolute beginner stuff here but very useful especially in terms of setting up RVM which I've had difficulty in the past.

Installed VMWare and Ubuntu

Just installed VMWare Player 3.1.3 and Ubuntu 10.10

Used VirtualBox in the past however switched to VMWare.

Main reasons being:
- Had trouble with screen resolutions between host and virtual machine
- VMWare allows split screen across multiple monitors
