Awesome ROM, Leslie!
I do have a question or two, though.
I noticed there was no boot.img in the zip. No big deal, I flashed the rom anyway. Took a few minutes to boot up, like you mentioned. Worked fine. I then went to turn on WiFi. It said "turning on WiFi" and never got farther than that. I waited oh, probably 20 minutes or so. Rebooted, same issue. What I did then was flash Simon's kernel on the ROM, and it seems to work fine for me now.
Not sure if I did that right, or if there was another fix. I didnt' see anything in the posts about it.
