Long time no see

Been a while since I've updated. What have I been doing? Staying home with the baby and looking for a job. It's a lot more work than you would think.

I really need to update the way this blog looks, it's so boring. I need to be more creative.

As for Android, I'm currently running Sapphire 1.1.1 with Incognito theme. It's my favorite look so far.

Simply Stunning 4

After installing multiple 2.2 ROMs, I think I have finally found my favorite.  Simply Stunning 4 looks great and is VERY fast. It has a smoked glass theme with blue highlights. The one issue I've noticed is that as the battery drains the image does not reflect that, only the percentage.

One picture for now,  more to come later.

I love Froyo!

Ladies and gentlemen, I am now running Android 2.2 on my Motorola Droid! And do you know what comes with froyo? That's right, FLASH, baby! And what does Flash support mean? It means I can watch Hulu from my phone! It also has a new launcher, 5 home screens, the ability to auto-update apps from the market, and JIT support which makes it run much faster.

If you're interested in taking the plunge you can check out for all the information you need to get some delicious froyo.

Images will follow when I have time.

The Adventures of Willy Beamish

I finally remembered the name of this game! I've been trying to remember for years, and all of a sudden it just came to me yesterday. When I was a kid I used to go to my neighbor's house and play this old DOS game, and after all these years it's still fun. If you've ever played any of those "escape from the room" games on the internet it's kind of like that, except a full game. You're a kid who collects things in his backpack and use them to get out of certain situations as the story progresses. You have a trouble meter, and the more of a little nuisance you are the higher the meter goes until you get shipped off to military school.

You can download it at this page. You will probably need something like DosBox to run it, which you can get from

Not what you remember...

I've been building a collection of alternate art styles and character mismatches for different characters and stories. Take a look, you'll understand what I mean once you've seen them. If you have any others please share!

not what you remember

Blue Energy Theme by roberj13

I've been using the Blue Energy Theme by roberj13 for several days now, and I must say I'm very impressed. The notification icons for everything are all custom images, and everything has a nice blue tint to it. With a little customization by using your own widgets this thing is beautiful. Originally it was released as a full ROM, which is what I'm running (screen caps below), but now is available as a theme to go over CyanogenMod or Bugless Beast. Make sure to check out the running thread over at droidforums here.

Steam by MrBobrowitz

I just recently flashed the Steam rom by MrBobrowitz to my Droid.  This is definitely one of the fastest and most stable ROMs I have used so far. It runs incredibly fast and very smoothly without getting too hot (mine is overclocked to 1Ghz ).  The only complaint I've had so far is that I can't get the text color for the notifications to change, and I'm not sure if that is a problem with the ROM itself or with Spare Parts.

Overall though this has been a pretty great experience.  If you want to give it a shot you can grab it in ROM Manager.
