De-activated My Facebook Account // Suck it Zuckerberg

As Lando once said: This deal is getting worse all the time…
Yep there was a time that facebook was the most private of the networks. That day has long passed and we have seen facebook do little to help it’s users to protect their privacy and their content.
I’m a fairly tech/web savvy person and even I got confused with how facebook privacy kept on changing for the worse. I really really hated how facebook kept on hi-jacking links. I also did not appreciate the LIKE system spreading like a cancer all over the WWW. So this morning:
  • I removed ALL my LIKES (there were A LOT over the years)
  • changed all my interests to “Facebook Privacy Sucks”
  • deleted my mobile numbers
  • and finally de-activated my account.
The only downside that I am seeing is that I don’t have access to the company facebook account, like it or not, facebook is the biggest social network out there and you would be fool if you did not want your brand on there.
I might re-activate my account to get access to my company facebook page. For now facebook is off for a few days (maybe even a week) as a sign of protest. Heck I’ve successfully quit Instant Messaging, facebook with it’s annoyances is much much easier.
PSA:
Use email instead of Facebook messaging. You never know what they’d do to your messages.

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_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image

VGA:
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.…
