20. Re: Windows XP Sep 10, 2002, 23:20 Tom
Ya, I saw that WinInsider article but wasn't sure if that info was still valid (it was dated during the beta test period of SP1.)

I'm glad they increased the grace period. I had a defective GF3 awhile back that fried the AGP slot in my motherboard.. so after I replaced the motherboard and video card, XP wouldn't let me log in without reactivating. The online activation didn't work so I had to use the phone. The automated phone system rejected me so I had to talk to a person and explain the situation. Fortunately the guy I talked to was helpful and gave me a (long) code to type in that got my system up and running again. Still kind of a pain though.
