RAM to rent, excellent rates

Reading ‘The Mythical Man Month’ currently. Cool fact I learned today: in 1969 or thereabouts, it cost $12 a month to rent a Kb of RAM. So I could charge out the machine I’m typing this on for approximately $10,000,000 a month, at 1969 prices. Taking inflation into account, its probably more like half a billion dollars. Every month.

Any takers?
