Being Doraemon / Headset Woes

Being the resident geek among my friends I get a lot of tech support questions and requests. I'm not bothered though I enjoy figuring these things out. I also don't mind teaching people how to use their PC, mobile, gadget as long as they are willing to listen and learn. Sharing knowledge is much more fun than acquiring it. Much like Doraemon who tries to help Nobita (fortunately I don't mess up as much as my fave robot cat from the future.)
I've finished with Aileen's Dihya's palm Treo 750 last night did some application installs and registry tweaking.
Got 2 more jobs lined up for this week:
1. Diagnose Camille's palm Treo 750 - no earpiece volume.
2. Diagnose Chutball's home desktop - slow system / possible viri.
Damn working with 750s again. I miss my Treo 750 although I know I am better off with my TyTN2 because it has WiFi and I don't have my own PC at home. I also appreciate the tilt screen much more, I hope when the time (or urge) comes that I move on to the next device I get to keep the TyTN2 as a spare mobile it really is a well built device, now if only HTC supported it with nicely compiled drivers and ROMs. I have rolled back my device from 6.1 to 6.0 because of a bug. I contacted HTC support but got the standard non-commital answer. I am still itching to get an MSI wind as my ultra portable but have decided to hold off until next month after I get back from HKG (who knows what new stuff they have there!) As for my desktop dreams well I think I can delay that further since the titles I intend to play are a couple of months off. I did mention that I broke my i.Tech ArrowLite's ear hook. My trusty Motorola HT820 also needs some repairs as the earpads have become worn out. I wonder where I can have those repaired. I can probably make do with these minor annoyances for a bit longer.. That is if don't see compelling stuff in HKG hehehe.
Well it's time to hit the hay, tomorrow is another day!

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.…
