The price seems rather high. A 256Mb one is around $85 at the Computer 
Fair (one on tomorrow at Woden CIT).

Re the plastic. A tip: always hold it by the SIDES when 
inserting/removing. The plastic shell is rather thin and the "guts" are 
separated from the plastic body my little bent metal "legs" which will 
push thru the plastic if you squeeze the top and bottom of the Jetflash.

If the "legs" do push thru and the plastic is damaged (actually breaks 
away) you can repair the damage by using clear nail polish to glue back 
the plastic bits that come away.


Weiler's Law: Nothing is impossible for the person who doesn't have to 
do it.
