Best

I feel so honored to be the first comment.  All of my hardwork and dedication has paid off. Getting the top comment has been a dream of mine for many years, and I would like to thank those who have helped me along the way.

First and foremost, I would like to thank my parents for giving me this opportunity. I want to thank my cat, Bruce, for always there for me. I would also like to thank him for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next, I would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for my one baby tree because that gives me inspiration that I need to get through the day.

This is a special moment in my life and I would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that i will never forget. I just remembered a few other people I would like to thank; facebook, deviantart, youtube, my new wonderful and beautiful girlfriend, the light in my room (because I wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it), the internet, my house (because without it I would be homeless), and last but not least: I would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be the first comment on a post for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how I did this, I would say, you can achieve anything you set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, I would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top comment is amazing, thank you everyone.

Android Development:Eclipse Emulator too slow

androidOne of the problems with using the ADT Eclipse and its in built Emulator for android development is that its way too slow. But there is a solution.

the folks at genymotion.com have a much faster emulator for use with eclipse at its very simple to get to started, just go to their site and register and follow the instructions. The emulator that you install is at least 20 times faster and well worth the time to install and setup.
