comment Laptop can't enter BIOS but boots fine
I wouldn't think this is that likely to work but if you're on windows 8, one poster in that thread suggests some mumbo jumbo with a windows 8 option that might help

comment Is learning Java enough to make good Android Apps?
and he should learn java first prior to android. I've seen a similar course that listed java as a pre-requisite. Funny thing about apps, many people think oh it's just an app and they have no idea absolutely no idea what they are getting themselves into.

comment Is learning Java enough to make good Android Apps?
learning some java isn't even enough necessarily, to make a good java program( as daniel B kind of points out). But that aside.. There's something else some kind of android framework.. To even generate a small android app that does nothing, you have to use like ant or gradle which is a "builder" of some kind. There's a bat file, android.bat which can generate a small android app.. Not even a good one

Your question loses value because while the answer was good and you accepted it, you didn't state what aspect of it solved it for you

well obviously test the network, see if you can ping

comment Using SSH from inside VMWare
and if you find it works wired with bridge mode, i.e. when you plug the network cable in, then you have an interesting question there of what to do to get it working or as a workaround.

comment Using SSH from inside VMWare
This has nothing to do with ssh or svn. It's just getting the networking working. e.g. try pinging and if it works or not. I don't recall if it's vmware or virtualbox but one has an issue with bridge mode and wifi. Try using a wired connection and see if the bridge mode suddenly works (And once you have the networking working, then it has nothing to do with virtual machines)

comment How to simply xcopy a folder into another keeping the structure?
You make the directory first, not just so you don't have to type it (you can avoid typing it again by copy/paste which is very quick if you turn on quickedit mode in the cmd window), but you also make the directory first so xcopy doesn't prompt you asking if it's an F-Folder or a D-Directory. And when you have made the directory prior to the xcopy, you can use tab again. Not need to even copy/paste, let alone typing the long folder name again.

Also, if the dest directory doesn't exist then xcopy prompts you whether it's a file or directory, so it's easier to just 'md' it beforehand. And furthermore, with DOS or CMD, if you do DIR blah* then you know what it is going to do.. it will list all files/directories beginning with blah. But with linux if you do ls blah* or ls /etc/ssh* then unless you know the directory structure before doing the command, you don't know whether the output is going to be the files starting with blah, or the contents of a directory starting with blah. So linux has some serious shortcomings IMO.

And if you think that due to the occasions where it is the same name twice, it is then too many keystrokes, and a shortcoming inherited from DOS, well, it's not like linux philosophy is minimal keystrokes, Try to list just directories not files, in linux.. you need some find command, whereas in CMD or DOS it's just dir /ad

comment How to simply xcopy a folder into another keeping the structure?
All very well if you want to copy the directory somewhere else with the same name. But suppose you wanted to copy the contents of a directory into a directory of another name. The fact that with xcopy you specify the directory whose contents you want to copy, that gives you that flexibility. On many occasions it may not be the same name twice.

comment How to simply xcopy a folder into another keeping the structure?
so you want to copy the directory with its contents, rather than just its contents.. I don't know, move works like that. move b a, will move the b directory into a. But you know re xcopy, a workaround is to do md thedirectory then xcopy the contents of your source directory into that.
