Nice to be in AC Forums
Glad to be diving in to the Android Central Forums. I live in the SF Bay Area (Oakland) and my professional and enthusiast involvement with PCs and IT stretches back into the mists of time. I was a programmer for 15 years but burned out on it and spent the next 7 years working as gardener (!). I'm also a musician and DJ and I kept my tech brain happy, programming beats and mad,wobbly, squishy bass lines <g>. These days, I've slid back into doing tech consulting part time - something about paying rent, I think.
I was an early Palm user and even after mine died, I was just waiting until the basic form factor reappeared. Apple's beastly biz ethics ruled the iPhone out but as soon as heard about Android, I was all in. Unfortunately, I was all broke, so the best I could do was the HTC Droid Eris but it wasn't long before I found out what mind blowing work was being done by the Android dev community. There work on the little Eris kept it usable and fun for almost 2 freakin years. What a ride and one the best online forum experiences I've had (XDA-developers).
I made the 10,000 ft. leap to the HTC EVO 4G LTE a month ago. Linpack jumped from 3.8 to103! It singed my eyebrows but they've grown back now, LOL!
