    I am constantly amazed at how many posts are made and how quickly they are responded to. So, a little personal question. . .

    Who are you?

    I assume that most of us here are adults who work a job that allows them to buy an expensive phone (or two or three) with expensive data plans, so are you all at work slacking off and following the threads?

    I must admit I am guilty of that occasionally as I linger around here.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. At some point, I was going to create a demographic poll, but anyway, here's my story:

    I'm 30, completed my Computer Science degree at 21, and have been working in the IT field as a Systems Admin ever since. I have a full time job, and since I'm basically in front of a computer all day, I usually have this forum window open to browse, post, and learn from! Although, if a server is down, or I get dragged into office politics (user A angry that user B has a later version of MS Office, etc), then it's a different story! :D

    Who is next? :p

    I have a laptop in my car at work with a constant mobile internet connection (verizon), so I'm able to connect to this website whenever I want :)

    I spend a lot of time at work (while working, in between working, pretending to work) on these forums. A lot of websites I would normally go to are blocked on the corporate network, so I hang around here a lot. Don't get me wrong, I actually do get a lot of work done, but I need something to break up the day. I'm 26, working at a bank and (slowly) working on starting up a computer repair business. I don't make a ton of money but I make enough to treat myself and save a good portion of it.

    Interesting! I myself work as a legal counsel in state metro law, so I have a lot of down time too, ha ha.

    Keep them coming!

    I know there is a pimple faced teenager in here somewhere, trolling around from his mom’s basement.

    Haha that makes 2 of us. Im a college student majoring in Game Design, and i love how many possibilities this phone offers me, so i come to these forums to catch up on whats the next step. I think im in love.

    I got my phone for christmas, and 5 days later i have a rooted phone with a custom bootanimation and all new default fonts. Clearly, these forums are a kickass resource

    I haven't rooted, not in that big of a hurry. We'll see what comes out in January. Plus, if I bricked my phone because I missed a step or did something stupid with the phone, my wife would kill me. :)
