Even though it doesn't seem to be getting much interest on this forum, I've been working on converting the script to support multiple forums. While doing this I used DroidForums to test. I think I have everything working(easier to add new forums in the future as well)... but I'm going to...
It's definitely a better idea to figure out why your screen isn't auto turning on & off. Your face will hang up on people & what not if the screen doesn't turn off. I had this problem, my screen was staying on & causing me to hang up on people.

IMO, the DX is a pretty nice phone ever since it's gotten 2nd-init support. ROMs such as CM7 & MIUI have been rolling out for it recently. It really just comes down to what you need/want in a phone. Do you want a physical keyboard? 4G? Screen size? Etc.
This is BETA(Though everything seems to be working flawlessly)
Forum Notifier alerts you when it sees a new post of a user quoting you on a supported forum. The supported forums are polled once a minute, meaning you should receive a notification within a minute of the post.
If you're just tethering to a computer & don't really need for it to be wireless I would just use Easytether Pro. It's working without any problems for me. I'm not sure if it's still in the main market, but it's on amazons appstore.
