Low On Storage Space (Android)

Today I had an issue with my Droid Incredible and was not able to access my gmail messages.  The problem message I kept getting was a HTC process that would not function and as a result, the phone would not autosync.

Exasperating an already bad situation was a “Low on storage space” message that wouldn’t go away. I tried everything and it wouldn’t go away. I searched online for a remedy and did not come across one so easily. The problem was I had plenty of storage space left (using only 214mb and over 500mb free) so I knew something wasn’t quite right.

I finally found the solution and thought I would share it with you in case this happens to you in the future or it happened and you stumbled on this site through an exhaustive search!

1. Goto settings
2. Goto applications
3. Manage applications
4. Check your facebook app, gmail app, twitter app, and whatever apps you use the most of. On each one, push the “clear data” button.

This should free things up and get you syncing again. In my case, my facebook app was the culprit.

Coal Fired Pink Floyd Connection

It’s not every day you can connect several dots that in most peoples mind could never be connected. If you are a Pink Floyd fan (and I know deep down you are), then you are going to recognize what I am about to show you.

On the critically acclaimed Animals Album, the Battersea coal fired power plant is featured on the cover.

Fast forward about 30 years and look at what is planned to take it’s place:

Yes, people of the blogoshpere, an eco dome.

Mercedes is doing the right thing. To heck with fossil fuel. Who needs it.

We don’t need fossil fuel. Mercedes knows it and so does big oil. Or rather, big Hydrogen that is. Weel, not exactly. I don’t know for sure that LNG is fossil fuel. Big oil is betting on it to move away from oil and toward hydrogen. How molecular.

This kid has watched way too much Ferris Bueller and War Games. Mebbe it’s just a fascination with Mathew Broderick. Anyway, this kid is in huge trouble for, uh, well, a lot of things. Check it out.

I knew the time would come when I had to acknowledge my 250 mb Zip drive is obsolete. Do you think it’s time to buy a new computer when a storage drive becomes obsolete? Can you tell my wife please? I really want to overclock something. All the cool kids are doing it. Over at Gizmodo is a story about obsolete storage devices.
