And it bugs the hell out of me, for one reason:
What the hell does $1/hr/cpu mean? Do they have ten thousand Intel 8088s decked out with 64kb RAM each, and hundreds of trained gerbils dragging little punched cards back and forth for networking?
Or do they have a farm of prototype 6ghz G5s, each one with 32gb of L1 cache and 10gb fiber, and some crazy ten-thousand-port switch with a hundred-terabit backplane?
$1/hr/cpu. Jesus. That's as bad as describing car engines based solely on how heavy they are.
