I enjoy technology. To be specific, I enjoy upgrading every aspect of my technology to the latest version available. While the former is reasonably common, the latter is best described as “masochistic and ridiculous”. So, with that in mind, I set out yesterday to install a not-terribly-public build of a pre-release operating system on hardware that’s only accidentally compatible with said operating system.

The result? It installed successfully, but only after I realized that “20 minutes of a black screen, no response to user commands and constant drive spinning” means it’s not done yet, but that “8 hours of a black screen, no response to user commands and constant drive spinning” does indicate a successful install.

Based on the ratios of campaign signs I saw while driving to/from my parents’ house last weekend, here’s my “fearless” predictions for three Nebraska elections:

  • Senate: Ben Nelson over Pete Ricketts, by a smaller-than-projected margin
  • Governor: Dave Heineman over David Hahn, by a large margin
  • 3rd District: Scott Kleeb over Adrian Smith, by a large margin
