Happy Ending to my AppleCare experience

Someone from the Apple Store called this afternoon and said that my iMac was repaired and ready for pickup.
Both the 20″ LCD panel and the SuperDrive were replaced (under warranty).

Thanks to Aaron and the other hardware techs at the Houston Galleria Apple Store (just no thanks to the particular Genius I dealt with on Sunday afternoon when I dropped the machine off).

Interesting fact: LG makes the LCDs for the 20″ Core Duo iMac systems.
