Back in the Motherland...

Delayed Posts
Back in Xiamen, China we had to wait for a few minutes before our trader cum guide arrived they unfortunately had a flat on the way to fetch us at the airport. My mandarin isn't all that sharp I'll be the first to admit that. But from their conversation I've gathered that we're racing off to a factory before they go for lunch break to get something. Also the driver isn't so familiar with the destination so we're semi lost. Our guide has informed us that we'll be staying in Xiamen for the rest of the day because she has some business to finish here. We don't usually stay in Xiamen but go to nearby Quanzhou (1 to 1.5 hours by car). I wonder were we'll have lunch at. The factories will be on break from now to about 1 or 2 pm. Ok, we're having lunch here at 'My Best' a steak place they while driving. I ordered Steak and Foiegras since this trader is über cheap I'm going to hit em back by ordering the most expensive thing I saw on the menu. It's RMB 68 + 6 for soup that's 74 or roughly 440 PhP that's pretty cheap for steak so I'm not expecting much. As expected you get what you pay for. The presentation wasn't really great either. Mas ok yun Flamed Mangoes & Foiegras by Chef Chups... Their Blue Mountain Coffee was top notch though and it's pretty cheap too RMB 28 or about 180 PhP.

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.…
