I am surrounded by 50 or so police officers in a main police headquarters, with about 2000 of them guarding the legislative court from students rioting.

Currently doing programming on AIDE, but couldn't help myself from settling down.

I am fighting boredom with my mind, and we're trying to dominate ownership of an electric socket to charge our phones and tablets.

I have about 2 hours before me and the rest of the squadrons will have to go downtown and guard our posts.

It is a boring and tiring day for us, and even when I ate lunch, I am hungry for more. We're stressed for about a week and five days, so a lot of our guys are plainly out of shape.

Still, my love for my project never fades. I still have doubts that we will rest and sleep well, as tomorrow is the day when students all over the country will march onto the streets to protest. And none of us guarantees no riots.

Packing my bags...

Try not to shoot anyone in the head with a gas canister. Would be good to remind your comrades of the same.

Don't worry, just a peaceful takeover that lasted more than intended. Everyone is tired, no one wanted to use violence.

What is your project? How do you like AIDE? I'd love to try AIDE if I had a netbook style Android device.

My project is OpenGL ES 2.0 related. If you wanted to use AIDE, I recommend that you get a tablet with a mobile keyboard. If you're like me, restricted to staying mobile in case of emergency, use a smartphone with a screen size larger than 4".

AIDE is useful if you have a keyboard. Hotkeys are much more productive. You may want to root your device if you want a more streamlined compiling sequence.

It is very useful for writing Android apps and Java console applications. You can create almost anything with just programming Android alone, but you'll have a hard time with XML and the manifests. Android capabilities are limited to your API levels, so don't expect to see OpenGL ES 3.0 on a Gingerbread.

For Java, you are limited to console development, no Swing or any javax stuffs you normally use on a computer. I don't know what Java import packages are supported, so there should be a list somewhere.

For a netbook styled Android device, get Asus Transformer Pad TF701T. You can upgrade to Android 4.3. Who knows how long will I get 4.4, but I still hoping.
