Unfortunately, computers can compensate for your apparent poor memory,
they can keep an exact record of what you said.

You state that the going rate for a domain *AND* a "class C" is
$35 per year (you know, "is" as opposed to "5 years ago was"):

You again say (not imply) that the usual charge for a /24 is $35 in
your next message:

Duke>paying $15 / yr. (or maybe mo.) for 5 IP@'s, above & beyond any "usual" ISP

Duke>the usual charge for which is $35 / yr. Hence, ((768 / 35) * 100) ->

Combined with the statement in the message I'm replying to in which you say
you were NOT doing so, I'm going to have to assume that your only goal is
self-entertainment by spuring a flame-fest.  Doing so compromises the
integrity of the list.  I'm going to ask Wayde to review this situation
and your posts before alowing this to continue.

If you only want to fire a flame fest, please take it elsewhere...
