Figured I would throw this up here.
My name is Chris
I consider myself to be somewhat tech savvy and my current college major is IT.
My parents got me a new Droid X for Christmas and I love it. I have tweaked the [swear word] out of it. I have given it an ApeX ROM with what I think is a Fabulous theme. Not sure which (I don't remember). I overclocked it to 1.2 GHz, and I even made my own winter themed background [SHAMELESS PLUG]. I love this thing.
This Droid saved my GPA....sorta...
The day after Christmas, I flew to [Aruba]. The day before we flew back(we flew back Sunday) I realized that I had a major project, due on Monday at 12:01 AM, where I had to write up several pages in HTML and CSS. I couldn't use my laptop because its battery is junk at this point and can only hold a 20 minute charge, so I had to think fast. I downloaded [Touchqode] and an FTP client named [andFTP]. I spent the 5 hour flight back to NY writing up the pages. I was able to finish it and upload it Sunday night from JFK at 11:56 PM using the FTP app. The site looked great and it passed W3's validation.
Unfortunately, I realized in class the next day that it wasn't due that Monday but the next one. Needless to say, I walked out of the class and when asked why I told my teacher "because I did my homework". He is an awesome teacher so he knew exactly what I meant and just laughed.
Another instance which happened a few days ago. You know that huge snow storm that hit the NE hard? Yeah...That's where I live. Anywho, I had to make it to the CS Lab to write up some code in C. Unfortunately a blizzard was occurring and I didn't feel like chopping at the ice to get into the building where the CS Lab was. I was in another sticky situation. I knew that you can ssh into the labs to work that way but my laptop is a Windows machine and I didn't feel like figuring that one out. So I booted up the terminal emulator on my Droid and started tapping away. Soon enough I was able to submit my working program and got an A without ever having to risk frostbite.
And that is how my first few weeks with a Droid was. I have many more stories, all of which take place in the Aruba, but I think I will leave it there. This is an introduction, not Reader's Digest.
