    Why Sourcery and not Sorcery? I am guessing the "U" makes it Source, which holds some meaning? Sorry, but I was just curious.

    I do too. My youngest asked me, and actually I never noticed the spelling discrepency, why it had the u. I couldn't answer definitively, but guessed on the "source". Either way, I have had no desire to switch ROMs since I first installed it. It is a record LOL.

    regarding new roms, there are no dumb questions.
    it is the question that goes unasked; now that's dumb.
    every developer, well except for eagle, has always been nothing but helpful.

    Do you mean everything but helpful? I have found both developers here to be extreemly helpful. They are absolutely the best!

    That's a negativo, PARick.
    Everything but helpful, actually is a negative commemt about whomever you would be describing.
    It would be a knock, like, I just got off the phone with Verizon support to ask why sometimes when booting the phone won't access my apps on the SD. They were everything but helpful. Meaning the reason I called was for help, and they were unable to provide said help. They might have been nice, but I called for help and that was all I wanted. I wasn't calling up just to have a pleasant little chat.
    Please make sure you all read chapter 4 in Strunk & White for next week.

    Ok, got it. Fixed the quote now. Your excepting Eagle intoned that he was not helpful. That's where I was confused. I guess we agree on this.
