Regular update, May 3rd

Finished lecture of fundamentals, didn't collect notes to conserve time (the documentation is well formatted and easily searchable, so there shouldn't be any problem if I need reference).

Clearing the stack
Starting tasks
Remote call procedures
Thread-safe methods
Activity lifecycle
Saving activity state
Coordinating activities
Service lifecycle
Broadcast receiver lifecycle
Processes and lifecycles

One of most important facts to note is that we'll be using a service, not spawning a thread, to upload files to the cloud (e.g. a picture from a camera), so that Android assigns service process rank to the task, minimizing jeopardy of it being killed in the meantime :)

Next up: User Interface
