Operating Woes


I was really excited the other day because I was downloading the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. If you’re unaware, I’m a nerd. I was excited until I started installing it. I’ve tried four times now and I can’t get it to work. When I was installing from inside Windows 7, it would hang at 72% […]

I have a few updates and thoughts in case anyone cares. Motorcycle Update: Geoff will be driving me to take a look at the new KZ650 this Sunday. Assuming the bike is in decent running shape, I plan to buy. The man who I am buying from has been quite kind in the process so […]
