ATT Fuze Transforming sounds

by on Mar.22, 2009, under Computers, Funny, Mobile

So I am browsing around my Fuze registry, just being bored, and I stumbled upon the registry settings to add/change the open/close sound effects (yea I probably could have googled for it, but its more fun to find it yourself!).

After finding it, thinking back to what I said when my friend Chris got his phone with open/close sound effects, “dude, I so want that, Id make it play the transformers sounds!”

Well, now I have a phone that supports it, and well, I did it!

You will need 2 things. The Zip file, and a registry editor for Windows Mobile phones.

To install:

  • Extract the zip file contents to \Windows on the Phone
  • Import the .reg file
    • or Open the registry to:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\SlidingSound
    • Add a new Key and call it “5”  or whatever the next set of numbers are
    • Click on “5” or the new number you added in
    • Add a new String Value, call it “Default”, and for its Data, type in “Transformers”
    • Add another new String Value, call it “in”, and for the data, type “in_5.wav”
    • Add a final new String Value, call it “out”, and for the data, type “out_5.wav”
  • Finally change to the new sound effect in the Settings > Keyboard Sliding Sound application and test!

VMware Dual booting?

by on Nov.16, 2008, under Computers, Linux

So, there is this interesting youtube video which explains how to use VMware Workstation to boot a Dual boot system into a virtual machine.

For those who are unaware, Dual booting allows you to boot either Windows or Linux.  You have to choose one or the other when you turn the system on.

With this setup, you can boot linux (my preferred OS) and use VMware, software used to emulate hardware of a computer, to run your Windows install just like you booted it normally.

Though you don’t get full functionality out of it, you get the basics, which allows me to do what I would normally do in windows (download and play games).

Also, while working with this, I ran into a problem with the current kernel in Fedora 9 (2.6.27.5-37.fc9.i686) and VMware Server 1.0.8.  I had to use the vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7-2.tar.gz file from this post to get the drivers to compile.  Though I did not get the Perl API libraries installed (I think its related to the drivers update, I did not look into it further yet), everything seems to be working fine.
