Saturday morning around 10 a.m. she decided on a domain name. By 11 a.m. (really), the domain was registered, her new XF forum was purchased, uploaded, set up and running, using a style she downloaded here. She spent some of the rest of the day tweaking the installation and poking around, and on Sunday morning she opened it up for business.
She has never administered a forum before. I should probably mention that.
This is just for anyone wondering if XF is difficult to use. I would say, no. No it's not.
