Haha, that's levels of awesome. I guess if I'ma be an Android guy from now on, I better become well versed in the ways of Google.
Yup. That site is really awesome. For some reason people get pissed off when they ask really vague questions and I give them the link. Glad you took it well . I still don't know what rooting is though, so I can't help you on that.
Well, if you can't laugh at yourself, push someone down the stairs and laugh at them.
Rooting is the equivilant of jailbreaking. It gives you access to the root files on the device which will allow you to install custom ROMS (operating systems) not the ROMs (games). I have just started using the Droid so havent rooted. I did jailbreak my iphone and everthing i jailbroke for the Droid does naturally. On the iphone jailbreaking allowed you to install themes, teathering, stolen app store apps, apps that apple didnt approve. Havent had much need of that since coming to Droid. Usually rooting is somethign left to the most tech savvy as a lot of things could go wrong and you could end up with a paper weight.
