CM9 Storage Shortage Problem

Leave a comment

Those of us who are still with their T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant with CM9 are painfully familiar with the space issues and no matter how hard you try to clean it up, it still happens until the next time you wipe your phone.

My solution to this is brutally simple:

I extended the internal storage space to 2 gigs and the swap partition to 512 MB.

However this was also not quite enough as apparently some extra script voodoo needs to be done. The reason for this and the actual script are located here: 

Thank god for XDA developers. 

Hope this helps

Scathing But Liberating Truth

Leave a comment

Buoyant Fantasies,

Collides with reality,

The truth emerges.


Truth, liberating,

Momentary pain arrives, 

The pain, cauterizes. 


Falsehood now severed,

Its time to begin anew,

Free of lies to self.

Sieg Heil

I do not agree with that the Nazis did in World War 2 and I am using their signature salute figuratively. I am in no way a Nazi supporter not do I support totalitarian regimes. 

However, one thing that iron fisted leaders do well would be purging the country of crappy politicians and getting shit done. It is what draws people to such leaders in times of dire need. Something we all need these days, leaders with ample will and capability to deliver the goods.

I would Sieg Heil to such despots myself if it were not for the fact the price is too high and such leaders usually screw up the country in the long run or turn insane. If those leaders are lucky, they will be immortalized and the people will somehow develop amnesia, forgetting all the crap that the despot did.

Guess life these days is always between a rock and a hard place. Indecisive leaders and power hungry despots, a honest hell and a false paradise. History that is a littany of false starts and missed chances or revisionism of history, redacting the bad parts.

Okay, enough pretentious thoughts on how things are. I will end this diatribe by putting in a picture of this blog post’s namesake. 


Interesting times we live in eh?

The Stars

Twinkling and twinkling,
So tempting and so fleeting,
Are you looking too?

Distantly you shine,
Beauty in simplicity,
Can I pluck you down?

Myself, powerless,
Being drawn to twilight’s light,
May I touch the light?

Cascading and pure, 
Starlight washes over my mind,
Warm light that’s not mine.

The light receding,
Warmth and comfort fades away,
Dawn arrives, star’s gone.

Dawn obscured the star,
Celestial orb in the sky,
Will the light return?
