Home > Tyler B > Delay?


If you have been following my posts on here you’ll know that the hardware I am running this experiment on is relatively new. In fact it’s so new it hasn’t even been shipped to me yet!

Here’s the problem: the large company that I ordered my laptop from seems to be having difficulties getting my order right. Three, count them, 1, 2 and 3, restarts later I finally have an order in production that looks like it might actually be correct. The only problem now is that its new expected delivery date is September 3rd. If it comes down to that and I do miss the start of the experiment does anyone have any suggestions about what I could do for those first couple of days? Let’s hear ’em!

    My suggestion would just be to delay starting the project. Running the distribution in a VM would be cheating – you would get experience with it, without seeing how it works on your laptop first.

    Yeah that’s what I was thinking of doing. Oh well it’s not like I can control their delivery times.
