For what it's worth, I'm a satisfied customer of Frank's recelling process,
as any of my happy and well-fed Newtons can confirm. And if you've never
enjoyed a full-spec Newton power cell before, let me assure you you're in
for a treat. I'm a heavy user of my Newtons, and 10 days between charges is
no sweat.

Frank, I know several folks here in the UK who would swear that $129 is
currently worth no more than the price of a decent lunch -- or about half
what it costs them to print the money. :) (Yes, I think it's a little
harsh too, but...)
