Since the guys I've been talking to worked in Hawaii I'll have

I may have been unclear -- we're just looking for a basic
effort here, not hard core get-the-data-at-all-costs work. If
the pack in unreadable, if the HL format's bad, it's not the
end of the world. We don't *know* that there's important data
on there, but there's a good chance this is the only copy of
something interesting (like TRAC source for the TI 990) and
we'd like to get it if it's easily readable on the appropriate
Yeah, I guess I was pretty vague in terms of what level of
effort we're requesting. My bad. Hope this clears it up.
