Never heard anything more from them.

They must have been up in my attic. I can't find my DOS 6.22 diskettes...

What's really wrong with the picture is that the supposed "super genius" had no idea what DOS was. Perhaps in another 20 years it would be understandable to have never heard of it, much less know anything about it. While this kid was probably quite good at hacking current systems to cough-up hidden treasure, being completely lost when it came to an old system and not bothering to accept the challenge of cracking it was rather stupefying. And, that his superiors (who certainly have to be old enough to have used computers before Windows, Macs, and Linux) didn't realize they needed someone with deeper expertise, who could turn the damn thing on for them, is just stupid. IMNSHO, those attorneys must not be all that hot if they passed up a big-ticket reimbursable. Vicki Lawrence's term "backwoods, Southern lawyer" comes to mind.
