Two Self High Fives for Beating Gadget Withdrawal and Getting Thru Week 01 of Project: Smoke-free Bny

Couldn't get back to sleep after I forgot to put my Treo on silent mode SMSes woke me up at 10:30am (slept at around 5:30am). 5 hours, I guess that would have to do. I've decided to have coffee (@ Starbucks) and doughnuts (via Krispy Kreme's drive thru), my impatience got the better of me and I split from the drive thru after waiting for 2 minutes (there were 6 more cars before me). So I'm here at Starbucks theatermall having my ritual brewed coffee sans the doughnuts but with cigs (still on my strict reduction scheme). Didn't get the dougnuts but I'm chalkin' this up to blessings in disguise, I don't need the extra calories anyway.

As for Project Smoke-free Bny (my personal Cigarette Consumption Reduction Program), it's been a tough week 01 but I'm still within my daily allotments. Self High Five! Alright!

I think I'm a bit dehydrated from Friday and Saturday's adventures. I'll probably buy Grape-torade (baby james translation: Grape flavoured Gatorade which is my drink of choice when re-hydrating) before hauling myself home for lunch. Hopefully I can squeeze in a power nap before heading out again this afternoon. IIRC were watching Die Hard 4.0 today (it's released as Live Strong or Die Hard in other territories) most folks are saying it's pretty entertaining.

Gadget Withdrawal vs Gadget Lust:

Gadget Lust - is wanting some gadget because I want it and I know I'd be able to use it and keep it for 3 months or more.
Gadget Withdrawal - is wanting some gadget just because I haven't bought and played with a new toy (er tool) for a few months.

I'm think I've got 'Gadget Withdrawal'. The last piece of tech I bought was my VAIO UMPC way back in March. I posted Friday that I was roaming the tiangge (bazaar) and shops at vmall for a new mobile. Here's the sick part: I was looking for a new mobile that I didn't and don't need. Coming to my senses I decided to deposit the cash I had so I'd have no ready cash to buy something that I don't need and would probably just review for a week or two and sell-off after. Pretty proud for resisting the urge to splurge on something I don't need.

Self High Five! Alright! For those who didn't get that watch the tv series How I Met Your Mother (It's gonna be, LEGEN... Wait for it... DARY!) Hahaha :-)

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
