Meet the Staff: Peggy / thetoothfairy
Meet the Staff is a new series which over the next few weeks will be highlighting ModMyi.com's awesome staff. Hopefully this well let our readers and members get to know us a little better by learning a bit more about our staff's wealth of crazy and fun people.
So far we have covered 4 amazing people that really put there blood, sweat, and tears into running this wonderful site. Cody Overcash, Kyle Matthews, Broomhead, and Simon.
Logan - Tell us a little about yourself. Your age, location, education, and what you want to be when you grow up?
Peggy - My name is Peggy also know as "thetoothfairy" or "toothy" and I am 53 years young! I have a home in Michigan and Florida and split my time between both. I have been married for 32 years and have two boys. We own a couple of successful businesses an Autobody Shop,Wrecker service, and city inbound.
As for my educational background I finished high school and then went to college for Art and Psychology. I loved Psychology because I wanted to learn how people think. I wanted to be a therapist and help people with their problems - especially drug and rehab. I also volunteered at drug and rehab centers - however my love was stronger towards technology. I have always been artistic and loved art and crafts.
When I bought my first computer, I started doing websites. Because of my love for technology and trying to keep up with it, I started to build PCs to further my education. I also tutored people at their homes on the computer as well. I have over 20 years experience building computers and tutoring. Our business needed to be certified through State Farm insurance companies. I furthered my education and got certified.
As far as what do I want to be when I grow up? I guess you could say I am already, and retired now - however I enjoy helping the community at MMi now.
Logan - How'd you first get involved with the MMi community? How long have you been apart of MMi?
Peggy - My first cell phone was a Verizon phone. I had a lot of fun modding that phone to get it to look and act like the iPhone. I went and looked at the first iPhone that came out and felt it was not as nice back then. However, every time I turned around I saw iPhone ads! So I went back and bought one.
Once I got it I feel it love with it! I didn't feel the need to mod it. Then came the iPhone 3G and the apps! I loved that phone too, but I hated all of the problems with the apps and the phone. With my background in technology I had to learn what made that phone happy and what didn't. It was quite a learning curve back then, but in the end I was happy with my phone even though many were still having problems with the phone and crashing with the new apps.
During my searches picking up info here and there I came across MMi; that was four years ago. For some reason I liked it here. I then started sharing what worked for me on my phone and with the use of the apps. As time went on I was chosen to be a mod/super mod here so now MMi is my home.
Logan - What Cydia/Apple tweaks/applications can you not live without?
Peggy - Some may think I am crazy for not modding my phone - but I have been patient since all of the problems with the 3G and felt Apple would give us what we wanted in time so I never modded any of my iDevices. But if I felt I needed to, I would! So I guess the only app I can't live with out is the ModMyi app
Logan - What do you think of the new iOS5 and iiPhone 4S
Peggy - Well I love it. I did not upgrade from the iPhone 3GS. I wanted to get the iPhone 4, but I wanted the white one and they did not get it out in time so I waited... by the time they did I decided to wait until the next iPhone! It is a treat compared to the iPhone 3GS, that is for sure. I love having new toys! The new 4S is such an upgrade from the 3GS, how could I not like any of it? However I am really enjoying the retina!
Logan - If you could be any super hero who would it be and why?
Peggy - Hmm that is a hard question! According to this quiz on some website I am the Green Lantern because I can be hot headed and I have strong will power and a good imagination hmm but rather be Superwoman because of her beautify!
Look for the rest of the crew to come with in the next few days here on Modmyi!!!

I'm sorry but all i've ever heard come out of the "toothfairys" mouth has been utter garbage. Usually digging youreself a hole on topics you obviously know nothing about, and usually see posts where personal emotions cloud youre posts.Sorry this is just what I've seen especially in the last couple weeks.

This needs to stop now, negative comments will not be tolerated everyone has an opinion I understand that but we will NOT turn this into a bashing and bickering thread.
