    So I got my moment a couple of months ago. I've been watching the boards about the leaked 2.1 version with the latest updates and rooting. I had to work up the courage and read the directions over and over before I tried it. It took me a long time but it was more a matter of getting all the right files on my computer and opened up in the right way. So I have 2.1 with the latest update and root (whatever that means, lol).

    I have helix launcher which is sweet. I played with live wall papers for a while but it seemed to be kind of a resource hog and the themes are a bit limited for me as I like to customize my own. And I have the latest gallery. It's amazing the difference between 1.6 and 2.1. Functionality seems much stronger and the app market just opened up.

    I used picme for the screen capture, cool. My home page is not as busy as I am really still exploring my new, new phone. I like the other weather widgets I see but I don't know what they are. Using the HTC Hero analog clocks. Handscent SMS, Quicksettings, and talk to text is sweet. Used it from the car last night and it was awesome.

    So hey all from the noob who is feeling pretty good about his geekdom. And let me know what the coolest weather widget is that you're using.

    Just saying, it runs 1.5, not 1.6. Also, welcome!
