Actually, I heard of someone who bought a small AS/400 and RPG
just so he could compile on it, then would move it over to his big box.

It was actually CHEAPER to buy a whole new AS/400 and the RPG
compiler for it on a smaller box than pay for the RPG on his big box.

So, you go through the Drive Through window of McDonalds.  You are
driving an old VW bug, so your McBurger costs you $.99.  Someone
behind you drives up in a BMW.  Their same order costs $5.79.  Tier
based pricing you know, they can afford it.

Regards,

Jim Langston
