that was completely unnecessary and unhelpful, please don't waste our
bandwidth, disk space, and time.

anyway, i'd be interested to hear what everyone has to say about
this.  about a year ago i deleted two files that were very important
to me on a vfat mounted partition while in linux.  i immediately
mirrored the entire partition over netcat to another computer, on whose
disk the image still resides, hoping that some day i'll be able to
restore the files from their cryogenic sleep.

i could probably find the raw offset of the file since i know the
first 4 bytes--as well as how to tell if those four bytes describe
a valid candidate (they were quicktime .mov files), but don't
know enough about FAT32 or available utilities for said fs to be
able to get it if it's fragmented around.  anyone know of any good
