Replacing Batteries

Before I did anything else this morning, I replaced the bios batteries in both my desktop PCs. The one in my main desktop was still okay, but replaced it for "preventive maintenance", since it has been in the machine since it was bought, around 4 years ago. The livingroom PC was losing the date and time every time the power was off, or it was rebooted, so it NEEDED replacing. It was a bit more difficult, since I had to remove a couple of cards to get to the darn thing. The main PC was easy as pie, since the battery was practically staring me in the face after I removed the side panel.
