Introduction and stuff
I have been lurking in MMI for a while now. I figure it is time to start getting chatty and let you all know a few things about me.
My friends call me Fish or Tuna. I am a graphic designer who does odd things in the virtual world Second Life.
The short version is I do a three dimensional hallucination called Tuna Oddfellow's Oddball. I am a virtual world entertainer and professional magician. My virtual art and special effects have gotten me very well known for what I am doing. Feel free to google Tuna Oddfellow, there is a lot on who I am and what I do. It's actually kind of surreal.
As a magician, I find it impossible to leave well enough alone. In Second Life I am always going under the hood breaking things apart and creating new alternatives.
At the beginning of September I got my Iphone 3G. The first thing I did was ask the question, how can I personalize this? As a magician, I was quickly finding all the magic effects, site gags and visuals I could get my hands on. One week later, I was doing a magic routine with my phone.
In the process of my search I discovered Suarik's free magic tricks for the iphone which led me to modmyiphone.com. from there, I began to study the whole process and figure out if I would be crazy to risk jailbreaking my shiny new Iphone. I love my widgets, but even more, I love to create with them.
On September 24th I made the leap, and my Iphone experience changed forever. Moreover, I was very excited to learn about this community, in fact, I was delighted to see the support that folks give out here.
I have been learning to hack my Iphone and I am creating some video wallpaper and other visual effects to add to my phone. As I figure out more about putting all the pieces together, I will be sharing some of my creations with the group.
I look forward to adding a bit of my own magic to the community. Dont hesitate to chat back at me in public forum or in private.

Yes that would be me. That video is a year old but gives you an idea of what I have been striving to do but more recent videos give more of an idea of what I ended up accomplishing from all this.

Those skills should come in handy in relation to customizing your iphone
