Re: Cost Discussions

Jim, Geoff, 

I hate to sound stupid my first time out, but isn't one person's
cost the previous person's price ? So I cannot talk about optics
module costs, or ASIC costs since I purchase those components at a price.

What rule can I use as chair to determine whether people are 
truely talking about the cost of something?
