I have been developing software professionally since 1985. The last 12 years have been devoted almost exclusively to websites using Java, Perl, PHP, and Ruby for server-side and Javascript with jQuery. I get my rush out of creating works that makes other people's work simpler and more productive.

comment Is it safe to wipe boot?
Thanks Richard. I think I've gone through several kernels now without ever wiping boot, but it's included in several of Amon Ra's "superwipe" scripts. Do you know under what circumstances this might be necessary?

comment What is hard reset and what is factory reset?
"You're right about factory reset -- it erases all your settings and data, leaving the OS." Does that mean that Factory Reset is exactly the same thing as wiping /data and /cache? I would have thought from the name that it resets your phone back to its "factory" state by reformatting all internal memory and flashing each partition from an image on a real embedded ROM in your phone, but that appears not to be the case. I guess if such a thing existed, it would be easy to restore a "bricked" phone. Manufacturers must be under a lot of cost pressure. ;)
