Jeepneys are a not a symbol. They are a symptom.

Jeepneys are a not a symbol. They are a symptom. 

Jeepneys are not a sign of Filipino ingenuity. They are in fact a sign of Filipinos refusing to move forward and clinging to an obsolete and unsafe concept left over from WWII. Until we remove jeepneys from our roads and move them into art galleries or museums, this country will not truly move forward. 

The DOTC / LTO / LTFRB do not have the balls to do the right thing and slowly phase out these rolling piles of junk with a misplaced sense of being engineering feats and works of art, while in fact they are not. They are a scourge to other motorists, traffic, safety, and the environment. 

I'd love to see a plan implemented that our roads would be Jeepney free in 5-10 years. Start by not giving new franchises, then stop renewing them, and of course you need to re-educate / retrain the drivers and provide them with modern safer vehicles. 

Being anti-Jeepney is not anti-poor, it's pro-safety and pro-progress.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

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.…
