Well, after a few home-brews, i have decided to format my pc tonight to clean it up and upgrade from xp to xp pro. Hopefully all goes well. I have backed up my beersmith files on at least 4 different sources, so if i loose my recipes, it will be a' ****ing 'mazing. 2- 500mb HD's may take a while, but as long as I got my beer handy all will be well. I my not format my slave tonight as I can do it any night as it is mostly full of ripped DVD's and misc crap i won't miss anyway!!
