master or slave?

My wife's sister and her husband just bought a new computer and my brother in law asked me recently what would be the easiest/best way to get their data from the old one onto the new one. So I gave him a few options but in the end I just told him to take out the old hard drive and put it into the new one and copy the data over directly.

He asked if there was anything more to it and I said "well make sure you set the jumper on the back of the old drive to slave mode" at which point my sister in law who had tuned out long ago because we were talking about dork stuff says "I wish boys came with that option." I responded by covertly slipping my wedding ring off and said in my special deadpan way "oh there is, you just slide this jumper (gesturing to wedding band) onto this pin (left ring finger)." At which point she used a different pin on her right hand to show her disdain.

Awesome - in a dorky sort of way. Rigth up my ally!

Oddly enough though, sliding the jumper off the pin doesn't result in you becoming the master. I can't figure it out.
