The system has been rebuilt by the shop that screwed me. They claimed that, on 
the first visit, the compressor needed to be replaced. On the next visit 
something else had to be replaced. After that second visit the system still 
didn't work--not even cool air. 

Once I took it to the shop I use now, they got it working but just not cold 
enough for my preference. 

As far as I know, the system was evacuated and refilled. I will verify this. If 
it needs to be evacuated and refilled, what are the chances of this working? Is 
the R134a that poor of a refrigerant that I will end up SOL?

TIA again

I agree, but wouldn't Tim's 96 S10 have had R134a from new?

My guess would be that the compressor is "tired", ie worn and leaking
internally making it not as efficient as it once was.

And whatever you do, don't read these documents:
