Dave,

If RunRev quoted you £1000, then they obviously felt you needed more  
than "15 minutes of advice". Perhaps your own estimation of their work  
is a bit off. Just a thought. It's a bummer and I've disagreed with a  
vendor more than once, but it's not your estimate that matters - it's  
theirs.
