Since ZR_Yancy, FlwrPwer and myself are all hitting the big 1k at the same time, I wanted to have a little reveal party and post all of our reveals at once.

Random trivia: did you know we now have 78 members with at least 1,000 posts?

Without further ado...

--------------------



Hey everyone, I'm Sean McCabe. I got my first iPhone a few months after it came out. I wanted to learn more about it, and while searching google, I came across eiC. I was soon engulfed in the ways of jailbreaking, and this community has hooked me ever since.

I'm currently living in Texas, in the San Antonio area. I work for myself, I own a computer repair businesss which takes up the majority of my time. My other businesss is graphic design and web developement.

While owning my own businesss can be difficult often times, it's nice to be able to make my own schedule. This helps a lot, because I'm also in a christian rock band, Progeny, and we travel frequently.

It was also beneficial for me to be able to do my own schedule so I could make time see my girlfriend. We met at a camp 6 years ago, and we've been together 4 years nows. After meeting at the camp, we soon unfortunately found out that we lived 200 miles apart. This didn't stop us though.

In May of last year, I bought her an iPhone 3G as a present. No more T9! I was so excited. It was probably more of a present for me, as I was happy to no longer wait tedious minutes for a reply. :D

However, many, many miles were put on my poor mustang from the bi-monthly trips back and forth. But ultimately, it paid off. We were engaged on her birthday in March of this year. She moved here at the beginning of the summer, and we no longer have to do long distance anymore. We will be getting married almost a year later next March. :)



This is the best recent pic I could find of us. The wind was in our face for this one, but we were quite tan from going being out in the sun at Schlitterbahn all summer.




Along with the band, (in which I play electric guitar, and piano) I also compose some of my own songs on piano. You can see these on my YouTube channel. I sometimes play with one of my brothers. He does the drums. Here's one of the most recent videos:



I think that's about it. I'm excited to make this post. Been looking forward to it for a long time. I've been here for quite awhile, registered beginning of last year, and lurked since 2007. I don't post as much as some here, but I try post when I have something to say. I've really enjoyed being here and making friends, and I look forward to being here until the 10G iPhone and beyond! :D


ps
i love skittles

Nice reveal! And congrats on the prenuptuals

I have to ask though, in the video, is it my imagination or is that keyboard backwards? generally speaking, the keys to the left get lower and the keys to the right get higher, and you can program the last 2 octives for drums, chords, etc.

Is the shot reversed? *EDIT* The Shot IS reversed. I just noticed the part of your hair and the lettering on your shirt.

Hawk, yes it's backwards. First video with my new laptop and didn't realize it did that by default!

Thanks for making me feel so welcome everyone.

Great reveal. I also love the romantic story - man we're all soppy barstewards round here.

Have long been a fan of your musical efforts as well - keep on sharing lots more of those as well Sean.
