Brigadeiros - Brazilian Truffles

I made these tonight (actually, made the paste last night, but didn't form the balls until tonight).  A few years ago, we went to an "International Day" thing that one of my wife's groups had.  The woman representing Brazil had these chocolate truffles and was supposed to have emailed me the recipe, but never did.  I was thinking about them the other day and decided to just search for Brazilian chocolate.  I figured it must be a popular Brazilian thing, since that was kinda the point, and it turned out I was right.  It didn't take long to find.

Converting VB6 to Android: Die Roller - UI

In this post, we'll continue converting the dice roller VB6 application to an android app.  In the last post, we set up the framework of a basic android application, set the project name and title, and defined the custom icon.  In this one, we'll start on setting up the UI.

Converting VB6 to Android: Die Roller

I mentioned quite a while back that I was going to start converting some of my old VB6 apps to Android.  That post wasn't really helpful, just a slice-of-my-life type thing, but I've noticed that it is the most viewed post I have.  I've done a few other conversion since, but just as tests, not complete apps.  So, I'm going to walk you through conversion of one of my old VB6 apps from start to finish, and explain exactly what I do.  You'll be learning Android programming (along with me) from the standpoint of a VB6 programmer.  I'll try to throw in c# references as well, but that won't be the focus, simply because that's not what the original post was about.
