Just posting good intentions is good enough for me. This board has been good since I joined. I just lurked this site since the Droid X days. If I didn't choose this phone and stuck around with my Rezound, I never would have been motivated. Do what I did, grab a VM image of Ubuntu, some tuts, and some drinks. It's fun to learn. If you don't build anything, you'll still learn how to figure some issues out there. I'm a computer tech that love troubleshooting but curious about programming. This satisfies my curiosity. As long as users like you are out there with the great attitude you have, trust me, that's very helpful, at least to me. It'l keep me motivated.
Now to get that sappy stuff out the way, I am repo syncing now with Lucid Lynx and will throw the LG source in the mix. I will build tonight after my baby niece's b-day party and hope for the best.
@miller, I know how you feel... after being sick all this week (still have fluid in my ears).
