You've never called their tech support hotline, have you.  It's
the only time in my life I actually got so exasperated that I yelled
at a hotline. Oh, and they charged me, too.

The trick is to ask them a question they cannot answer.  I asked how I
could rescue the damaged cab file on disk 11 of a 13-floppy set. They
said "Buy another copy, full price."
