Geek Guard, Roosters and Robots...

I'm on Geek Guard today, meaning I don't have to go to the office instead I go to V-mall to check on our kiosk and what not. The big difference: Office is 8:30AM to 5:30PM, Gadgetgeeks is 10:00AM to 8:00PM/9:00PM [9PM on Fridays and Saturdays] we don't have to stay there all day though so it's cool. I usually have coffee in the AM, check sales and inventory, go to the bank, then roam around V-mall looking at tech stuff. Sort off like 'lite duties' for CAT or ROTC.

I would've enjoyed the extra Zs but no... the fucking rooster colony at the compound behind our town house had a concert which started at around quarter to 6AM. Which reminds me I have to get earplugs later. There really should be a law against them they are clearly for cock-fighting which is illegal gambling right?

We're catching Transformers the movie later. Media buzz and word is that the movie is great, which is cool. Still lowered expectations means less disappointment. It'll be interesting to see if the merchandising for TF the movie is a success as well [except toys because these usually sell very well] especially footwear. I passed on the brand because I had already signed for Spider-man 3 [so far I've done 3 movies, 1 comics and a crappy 'and friends' brand for Spider-man] which is doing well. Heck it's been doing well for 6 years now. So I wasn't going to divide attention and resources between 2 brands that potentially would cannibalize my market. You see SM3 and TF are both brands for Boys, licensing folk know this and they'll still pitch that there is a female demographic, bullshit! A girl would rather buy a Barbie branded shoe than SM3 or TF branded one. If I hadn't signed for SM3 I might have considered TF, I've already thought up of ways to make a 'transforming' shoe [although concepts are far from prototypes and final products] and it's stored away in my brain for now.

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.…
