Android Error: android.database.StaleDataException: Attempted to access a cursor after it has been closed

During my android development, I came across this during run time:

android.database.StaleDataException: Attempted to access a cursor after it has been closed

I looked over the internet to look for solution on this issue. Many suggestions came out but only one suggestion solved “android.database.StaleDataException: Attempted to access a cursor after it has been closed” error.

It is by using startManagingCursor(cursor). The “cursor” is your result holder of your db query. Do not close you cursor for this time it is handled by the startManagingCursor in its proper time.

Hope this helps.

Next IX : The Funny Wrath

Note: Already posted in my FB account. Just want a copy on my Blogsite

Today – I am absent due to head pain, but because of that I’ve come to realized that there’s no time requirement and no qualifications for friendship to develop and grow. I’m just over a month working at Next IX Systems Inc. but I suddenly feel the feeling of miss to the people I’ve come to work with in the company. It’s rare for me to feel this way  but I am feeling it now. I think it’s because of the fun I am having while in the company. I call it the funny wrath of a Nile Sensie.


This started with the evil funny master planner Raffy Gozon Englis. The master funny villain of a Nile Sensie. The one who constantly make the workplace fun and healthy place with a twist of wrath. Slowly giving low blows to his subject, a Nile Sensie. Igniting the fire that would free the sharpened arrows to the subject. Like any other villains, he has his own army of apprentices, IPhone Master Developer Jay-Ar Atamosa, Group Jump King Lester G. Cabalona, Aviva Supreme Eman Daryl. Together, these guys made the evil funny master invincible (rawr – murag lion).


But wait, there’s more adding to the army. The assistant managers Eddie Ybanez and Vince Loremia adding some arrows that tickles to the bones of the subject. From time to time they hit small blows to the subject that lightens the worplace’s atmosphere even more. Waiting at the sides to make a devilish smiles and simple laughs that spells more arrows for a Nile Sensie are Neftali Papelleras and John Rey Borres.


Above these all, the audience hungers for more joke to explode are Ebi, Angela and Rey Philip Siega Regis. These guys are sitting at the front row while the act is on going all day and everyday.


But our subject a Nile Sensie would not let himself being just a mere subject. He will fight to his last breath. He will be strong and brave all these funny villains. He will not let the wrath hurt him. He will not let himself hit by these sharps arrows of low blows.  He will win the fight. He will.


But not until a Nile Sensie will fight back, this story will remain unfinished.

Workmates at Lexmark Research and Development Corporation

I was transferred here at Lexmark Research and Development Corporation (LRDC) during the last week of September this year. I was not thinking this was possible after my contract with Lexmark International Philippines Inc. (LIPI) was ended, but I was positive though. I knew that this would happened because of the work load piling up for the team. Crazy?!, I was just half hearted about this. This will be until this month only. However a move from the higher management expressing another extension of the contract. But this is still to be finalized. And if ever it’ll be extended, I don’t know for how long. It’s okay because I’ll be benefiting more for every month staying here.

In my possibly last month here, let me have this moment to introduce to you my LRDC Support Services team mates.

Firstly is our Project Analyst, Miss Gladys Lumanog. A married woman, about 5 feet tall in her 30’s. A beautiful, nice and warm project analyst. She’s been with Lexmark for 8 years now including her contractual years like I am now. A very professional and witty analyst. She is willing to impart her learning to those who are willing to learn. She loves to see people growing and learning with her help and guidance.  She masters Lotus Notes , Visual basic and .Net programming. A woman with a heart. A true definition of small but terribly witty woman.

Then Genevieve Tero, also an application developer. A former contractual employee now having her time as a regular employee. A meek woman with wits. She does best with her job. She know what she is doing and is confident about it. A seldom talker but a frequent performer as I would describe her. The management even plan sending her to travel for China to facilitate the project there. Unfortunately, because of the error entered on her birth certificate, she can’t be there.

Mr. Renemar Sultones, a web developer. He is an LRDC home grown programmer. He has been with LRDC for six months now. He’s here in this team even before us. A master of PHP programming and also has a wide knowledge with Java programming. He has developed big and difficult systems in his short stay at LRDC. He is a man who knows how to value a single peso from his pocket. He is the sole person in our team who has saved more than half of his 6 months salary. A human ant in action. A millionaire in the future.

Roche Plando, an application developer. Still under contract with an agency like me. A programmer by heart with a shadow of a beauty queen. I’ve been with this guy since the last year of college. We’ve work with many software developments since then. He is knowledgeable in PHP, Lotus Notes and .Net Programming.

Finally is the guy who joined the team last. He is Jeremy Ling. He master PHP programming as he has worked with this programming language for many years now. A former team lead now a IT Web Developer. I can’t tell you more about this guy except that he is professionally and personally good.

These are all my team mates here at Lexmark Research and Development Corporation. A stay with them is forever valued and treasured.
