Windows 8.1 Metro Screen Background

I have Windows 8.1 now and so far it's mostly good. Somehow the version i have doesn't allow me to customize the metro start screen. I downloaded this program "MordenUIStartScreen.exe" and I installed it and it was successful but I don't know where top go access the program after I've installed it. I need it to change the metro background.

Specific Content for a Blog

I have a blog that I think isn't going anywhere. It's general, all the things I see, hear and loved in life or on TV or the web. I had a blog up since 2009 which was very successful but my heart was no longer into it so I shut it down, it too was general. I wish there was a way to blog specifically about something. I tried, movies, tech and music but after a while I couldn't sustain it. I didn't have the material. My very first website was created in 1999 about Power Rangers and…See More

Will Windows 8 Work with my PC Games? XP Mode Clarity?

I am planning to upgrade my OS to Windows 8 from Windows 7. I heard some of my fellow Jamaicans on forums say that they have issues with win 8 and their pc games. They won't work in windows 8. Now I want to get the version of windows 8 that will enable me to use windows xp mode so I can run my games. Granted, the OS isn't out so I am assuming my J'can friends used the pre-release/test release. i just was reading here that Windows 8's XP mode may allow me to use older software that ran on XP.…See More

I have been using this cool new theme "Artarius Theme" from and it works just the way I want except for the fact that when it goes into content preview it summarizes the blog post but shows nothing beside the image for the post to say "read more' instead of having to click the title. I don't want visitors to think the posts end prematurely.

Getting iPad'd

Posted on March 31, 2010 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

First time blogging here. I guess I'll start with the iPad hype that is going around. the iPad launches this Saturday and from what I heard on G4 demand outweighs supply so they are gonna have to work out how they going to get iPads to all those who ordered and pre-ordered them.

Apple is quickly becoming a media and tech powerhouse again. Wishing them al the best. They have great stuff.
