Asus help hotline is "out of service"

The Asus hotline number is BOGUUUUS. Asus just recently set it up and, after finding out about it yesterday, I dialed the number this morning only to be informed by the operator "The number you dialed is no longer in service. Please check the number and dial again. (pause) The number you dialed is no longer in service...." So much for that customer service...Taiwan. 

With little recourse left to me I broke down and bought a brand new external DVD-ROM drive. Was hoping to find an off-duty Geek Squad around campus or, barring that, an external drive on the cheap via Craigslist or something. No dice. Yours truly was left to his own devices. Actually found it cheaper in the college store than Staples or K-Mart. The restoration was easy and successful. So:
GOOD NEWS = my netbook is back in business.
BAD NEWS = recovery failed; the repair wiped out the stuff stored on the harddrive and desktop.

But, hey, I dare not complain----much. Thank goodness I'd already emailed the MS. to myself! C'est la vie.
