Today, I like to depart from my attempts at creative photography to bring you something a little more geeky. After all, that is who I am and what I do on a usual basis. Mess around with forces that most mortals don’t try and play around with.
To be honest, installing Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the easiest geeky things I have done. Ready a few installers, toss in a bootloader, add the OS and the additional software, run the code and that’s pretty much it. However, Alpha builds are perhaps one of the most complicated bits to troubleshoot. Alpha strikes fear and doubt in most casual geeks. It’s because they are untried and untested. They are prone it things going wrong with little to no support to fix the problem. Of course, being a geek, it’s
almost impossible to resist mucking around with Alpha builds, especially when you make time to play around if things go wrong. It just has to be done. If you’re a geek too, you know where I’m coming from on this.
So for those that are willing to venture into the great unknown of Alpha builds I salute you. For within it lies the spirit of a true geek. Always willing to break the limits of what things were meant to be. Always saying, one more line of code, late into the night, until dawn breaks the glittering inky blackness.
