Same here -- I have an original Compaq "Sewing Machine" Portable with
a 40MB hard card. Of course the HD sticks and needs a good whacking
sometimes, and the last floppy came out of the drive smoking and
covered in grease. (You DO have a 5 1/4" 360K floppy don't you?)
My service, however is $2. That's because all keys are encrypted against
my key, which is unfortunately escrowed with the fellow listed above.
Sorry about having to pass along the extra costs. :-)
