  • Upgrading my work computer to Mavericks. Pacing and twiddling my thumbs while it chugs. It has said 35 minutes to go for 20 minutes now. :-/ 18:28:51
  • Time left has bounced between 34 and 38 minutes for over 45 minutes now. Woo! Gotta love “time left” estimates. :-/ 19:01:40
  • For the first time estimated remaining drops under 20 minutes after bouncing between 32 and 43 minutes for two hours. 20:04:46
  • Also represents the first 10 minute interval where the ETA (current time plus time left) actually got earlier rather than later. 20:06:07

  • Of course, about half of the programs I use have “first run” things they want to do now, often quite time consuming. Bleh. 21:42:17
