Any chance on doing that one for PLUG West or North?  I'd like to see 
it, but am not going to be able to get down to the city for it.  Some 
PANTUG members might like this one too.

I am, but maybe not why you think, and again for West or North.  Being a 
Security Geek, I'm a member of the ISSA-DV, and we talk about computer 
forensics a lot.  I was able to tour the PA-RCFL 
( which was pretty cool.  One of the things that 
came up is that Windows is/was the vast bulk of investigations, but cell 
phones and PDAs are on a hockey-stick rise.  So the first thing that 
jumped into my head was that this tool has very interesting implications 

When I asked about Linux and/or encryption, they told me they hardly 
ever see either.  Mostly Windows, Phones/PDAs more and more, a few Macs, 
and that's mostly it.

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
