Waiting for My Wind...

My Wind is going from the shop to the distributor/service center. It's 500 bucks just to start diagnostics. I am pretty sure that the whole case and keyboard would have to be replaced. I hope it isn't too expensive.

I am putting my NAS/Mediaserver plans on hold until I get my Wind U123H back from repair. Still dunno if I will shackle the netbook and make it my server machine or if I should make a low-cost box and use (or sell) the netbook.

For now I am backing up to my office and portable drives (2 locations) and via carbonite (online, offsite). The older of the two sounds like it is starting to fail though, I think I will offload the contents on that to a new drive this weekend.

I am thinking of using either a USB stick or flash card as a temporary NAS (for smaller files I want available via FTP) but honestly dropbox (3Gb) & zumodrive (2Gb) seem to be doing a good job (using the free versions of both).

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.…
