Gibson Research can't spell my name. A lot of people can't. Their web site
cites a quote from an article I wrote in the last century, mid-90's or even
before. I guess I could pull Steve's chain and ask him to fix the spelling.

Ben, do you mind emailing me? I have a question that is off topic
here but but has to do with the computing business. I'm not trying to
get personal, just asking one or two general questions. Essentially
I'm asking because inlaw #1 told inlaw #2 how good of a job I did for
#1 so #2 wants the same thing. At least #2 isn't asking to borrow my
car at the same time like #1 did. thanks.
(promise I will obey any privacy issues (if any) you have like I have
for others here when they email me)

Data recovery is always a crapshoot, even with the most sophisticated and
expensive tools. Back when I reviewed SpinRite, it did not have any data
recovery. Back when I reviewed SpinRite, the prevailing drives were MFM and
RLL, with ESDI and SCSI on servers. IDE was still a wet dream... Ben Myers

He must read here...Steve, your products are bloated and expensive.

I use Avast and Kerio's free firewall. I wouldn't consider buying from
anyone as money oriented as you.

Money oriented? Selling a product for a fair price?

What do you do for a living that is so altruistic?

You are entitled to your opinion...as I am.

I work at a nursing home, but I get paid for most of my time.
