You know the stuff from Pharmacia used to be much more expensive than other
competitor's. I paid extra $$$$ for their equipments partly because of
their good service(they used to send out additional literature and manual
for no additional charge). What you defined FREE here is actually not free,
we have paid that by paying their high prices for their equipments.

If you are always hunting something cheap, certainly, FREE seems a little
bit much to expect. But hunting for cheap is at least not my philosophy at
