    Honestly I had intended to lurk around and learn a little more before I made my introductory post, but I have an issue that I haven't been able to figure out just yet.

    First, the background! We've been a Palm family for the past two years. WebOS was impressive, coming from our feature phone background. Long story cut short, the phone committed suicide off a 4ft ledge on to hospital grade linoleum, and instead of filing insurance I decided to just pick up a "new" phone from the certified pre-owned (early upgrade not effective for a bit yet) list. Enter my "new" HTC Droid Eris.

    Where has Android been all my life? Or at least for the past 3 years? I'm hooked, to the point where we're already planning on filing our next month upgrades for a Thunderbolt (wifey) and Revolution (me but honestly still undecided, I like the Thunderbolt a lot too).

    I'm a little above average computer literacy but definitely not to the technical degree I've seen displayed by many of the members here. I work as a freelance web developer, dealing primarily with PHP and MySQL... I run Linux (debian based ftw) but I also run Windows. I'm a pinch hitter. I guess what I'm saying is I tinker, but sometimes I have questions that I need to pose to much smarter people like yourselves!

    So without much further ado, I have a question...

    Welcome, yours is the kind of introductory post I like :).

    Can't answer your question, but you've posted in the right place so I'm sure one of the guys in the Eris forum will be able to assist. Hope you enjoy your stay.

    Sorry all, been tied up with my other issue and that whachamacallit, umm.. life thing. Always takes up too much time if you ask me. Thank you all for the welcome, I probably won't be the loudest voice around but I'm hoping to hang out for awhile yet. :)
