Okay, so Windows is up... Time to enter my product key and activate Windows!


... Dang, my file server somehow lost its power supply when I swapped its memory out... That's where I keep my product key...

... oh well, I have 30 days to buy a new one  before Windows goes into cripple mode...

... On the bright side,  I got to see an awesome BSOD.  When the rig returned from Standby, it BSOD'd with something like "RC_TRIAL_PERIOD_EXPIRED" or some such fun.  Of course, when it rebooted, it came right back up in functory mode.  Freaky.
I have that key in three places, on a physical sticker I made glued to a jewel CD case. A copy on my laptop in a spreadsheet, a printed copy in my drawer.
