    Heh. Not only those who were officially HP employees but also those people who worked for DEC and Compaq who had pension plans got this letter. Luckily we didn’t have to take HP’s cheap offer of a year of credit tracking cause we got 2 years of it free from McAfee’s recent loss of info via D&T.
