Happy Birthday

Hm. What would you pick as a birthday present: Just something you can buy anywhere -- or something personal, unique, individual? Just a bunch of files on a storage medium -- or an actual spiffy object you can carry around with you?

Sounds like an easy choice? What if the spiffy object is the buy-off-the-shelf item, and the bunch-a-files is the unique individual hand-hacked item? Still easy? Hm...

Luckily, the question sorted itself out. My brother performed the Freundian slip of getting his unloved mobile stolen in a country where it does not even work(!). My mysterious bunch-a-files was targeted to be used on that phone. No phone? No phone-related birthday files. :-P So (to everyone's big relief) I gotta go with birthday present solution number two: A booooring iPod Nano.

What will happen to the poor carefully custom-made bunch-a-files? Will they be cruelly deleted? What if he buys a new phone (or gets one for his birthday), wouldn't they work on the new one too? Well, probably not. Nobody in their right mind uses midi NTH themes on a modern phone if you can have real tones and real graphics... Yep, that would have been my great birthday present idea. Custom theme files for his Nokia phone. =-)

Before they grow stale, I thought I just upload them here and donate them to the public domain. Whaddaya think?

Have fun...
