The Bad Part is that I've Had Too Much Experience

This was the second hard drive we've had to replace on Lisa's computer. Each time I do it, it gets easier, although it continues to be time consuming. What I think helped this time was that Dell didn't even attempt to re-image the drive -- they sent me an unformatted 60GB hard drive, and left it in my hands. Fortunately, the Windows XP Pro installation process seemed to work reasonably well, although it took an hour or so.

Otherwise, I'm trying to take things easy this weekend. There have been a bunch of errands that needed doing, but they're routine. I could have done them all yesterday and avoided having to go out again today, but realized that I'd forgotten what exact model printer I had -- I need more ink in all four cartridges, which I think will cost more than the printer did. After the last couple of months of every-weekend travel, two weekends of peace and quiet are quite welcome.
