Well it would be if Disneyland offered 'sepecial pensioners' day ticket for
$72. Pensioners, who are unlikely to run around like mad and get on as many
rides as possible, might think that this a good deal and conclude that
Disney are doing the right thing by pensioners - but the normal day ticket
is $72.

mySQL offers it's db free for non-profit. If I were a non-profit I would
assume that it would cost me less to use mySQL than for a commercial outfit.
I appreciate that for LAN use, a non-profit can use mySQL free whilst a
commercial adventure has to pay. I'm just surprised that a commercial
enterprise can save money by moving it's db off a LAN and onto a web host
and have someone else pay their mySQL licensing fees.
