    Well hey there! I'm Bill... currently a research assistant at NC State University in Environmental Engineering. As of 07/27/10 my life in the Android World began with a Droid X, though I haven't really gotten into playing with it until this past weekend. So a little about me and the phone... I was on the BlackBerry Curve for years; that was a great phone, but a thing of the past and RIM just couldn't cut it as far as touch-screen devices. In addition a 60 year old coworker got a Droid 1 a few months back... and I shan't be outdone by the elderly.

    My primary uses:

    Texting
    Phone calls
    Browsing
    Music
    Nav
    Toilet Reading :shocked:
    With that being said... THIS PLACE IS FREAKIN' HUGE. So if anyone wants to point in me in the right directions, feel free to do so. I'm always looking for useful apps/themes/etc. and it's hard to find them with so much information (and so many options) on this site, and around the web.

    So far I've done the following/added these apps (other than the common stuff like facebook, etc):

    Rooted (stock 2.1)
    928 theme
    Launcher Pro
    Home Switcher
    BusyBox
    DoubleTwist
    ShootMe
    Dolphin HD
    Wireless Tether
    PdaNet
    CustomCarHome
    DroidXBootstrapper
    MeCanto
    Titanium Backup

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Yeh, I installed PdaNet for wired tethering, in case I ever need that (I do have a wireless card, but one of my laptops' card is starting to flake out, thus the potential need for wired tethering).

    but you're saying there's a separate wired tethering app similar to the wireless tethering app? I'll check it out (app name/recommendation?)!

    thanks, I did search for it in the market place, but didn't see it, hence I asked.
