I assumed Phil had an issue with the *idea* of paying 300% S/H, not so  
much paying $12 to get his computer working normally...

Also, it just occured to me that you could just go to Radio Shack and  
get a $2 push switch and drill a hole in the chassis... Depends how  
visable this system would be, and how tolerant Phil would be of a  
'hacked' case I guess.
