Silicon Thumb

Since the 1980s, I've worked with computers, watched them grow, shrink, change and improve. I've worked with a lot of users and solved a lot of problems in that time too, so I thought this would be a good place to share some of the random things I've found and solved. If you have some odd problem, email me. If I can figure it out I'll post the answer here.

I am a veteran computer geek, but I prefer the term 'Hired Gun', since that gives the (misleading) impression that I know what I'm talking about. I have worked on all sizes of system as an engineer, developer, technical support and operations, and at all levels from Operator to CIO.
I have some certifications, but what they are depends on what Microsoft is calling them this week.

If you have a question, and don't mind the answer being posted, email me here, removing the spam stopper.

Fixing Android Music Player music order


Its been a looong time since I've updated here, but I'm going to see if I can add things as they come up.

I recently got an Android phone, which is frakking awesome btw, however I discovered an annoyance with the Music player, in that it doesn't play the album tracks in the right order, but rather alphabetically!!

This is not a bug, but a feature (for real), and is designed to make searching easier for particular tracks. If you do want to play a particular album with the tracks in the right order, simply press and hold the album cover (in the album lists screen), and then select play (or play in order, depending on your android version - I have 2.2).

Awesomeness restored!!
