Faster Than A Bleeding Pullet

The Pullet Surprise was on my patio when I got home - the motherboard from TigerDirect which their site showed had not shipped yet. Put it into the case, hooked everything up and it worked. Turns out the directions which came with the original motherboard had the connectors for the power LED and power-on switch reversed. No wonder it didn't turn on. Nah, the tech at MicroCenter would have caught that.

What I forgot was new motherboard --> new BIOS --> re-install Windows. So I'm on the laptop watching from across the room as the machine re-installs. Meanwhile I had time to take a short swim in the pool, first time I've been able to do that since I moved in. Very nice.
