You need to read different forums. Go to Settings, then Applications, and check the setting that says "Allow install of non-Market applications". Done. No root necessary.

I've had sort of the same idea, only mine is an IM bot that will occasionally fire off messages to my friends at 3 AM saying things like "Look behind you" or "HE COMES".

> The Clink Prison Museum

  Avoid this. I was in London earlier this year (half-vacation, half-work; I was doing some stuff for my master's degree), and stopped by the Clink. It's basically several rooms full of mannequins in replica torture devices and a few small, sad plaques with information you could find on Wikipedia. It definitely wasn't worth the money, even after the student discount.
