Monster Upgrade

Given my lack of new Flaptop, I finally decided to perform open-heart surgery on the Monster. A while ago, I got a new, faster, 60 gig hard drive for it.

But - it runs windows XP. Last time I tried swapping it (in the car on the way to the airport for Lotusphere), it said "No, not playing. License violation".

So yesterday - got the XP boot disk out, read up on how to re-enable, etc, etc. And what did the little bugger do ? Worked perfectly.. Thats what I like about computers. Everything is repeatable..
