Hmmm... I see following price for IBPhoenix recovery services....

Paid by Purchase Order or via Credit Card (Visa or MasterCard)
Price: $2500.00/5 hours, 5 hours minimum. Then $300.00 per hour
until the repair is completed.

That sounds like a hefty price tag for a charity software for a
charity-hospital. Is there any free service available ???
