State of the Bean Address / 1st Half of 2008

First good evening (or morning) to you my faithful Beanster Blog readers. What's up!?
A few minutes from now we'll be halfway thru this year. Here's a recap of this year's first 6 months.
Health: I wanted to end June at 125lbs I'm a few lbs shy of it but I'm sure I can catch up in July. Hopefully I can hit 130lbs by the end of July and maintain it. Maybe I should return to the gym (after 2 years). Also my sleep has improved dramatically since the devil birds are no longer an issue.
Family: my shobe Cat leaves in early July to work overseas. Take care shobe we'll miss you. Otherwise I think I've grown closer to my siblings which is great :D
Friends: most my friends are either having kids or getting married. Congratulations to By & Lea, Jose & Caryll, and of course Chi & Lyn. I've been able to re-connect with highschool friends which is pretty cool. It's not all good in this area but the good definitely outways the bad.
Gadgets: I'm still holding on to my HTC TyTN II and Nokia 6267. Still haven't purchased a UMPC or PC or both, I really have to save up for those. I think I also need a new pair of stereo Bluetooth headsets.
I think the 1st half of this year has been a bit rocky for me personally but things are getting better. I've learned quite a lot about myself and especially the people around me. I now know were I stand. I've made mistakes but fortunately have learned from these. I've become closer to my family which is AWESOME. I might try and quit smoking again for the 2nd half of the year. I hope that pans out better than last year. Lot's of lessons learned and remembered which won't be forgotten for the 2nd half of the year or for the years to come.
It may not be easy but I will overcome... for my ally is the FORCE.

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…
