Default weird point cost system...

I was looking at the point/buy ratio and found out some weird numbers..

pts - U$ - cost/point
2 - 9,5$ - 4,75
14 - 26$ - 1,86
35 - 57$ - 1,63
70 - 105$ - 1,50
100 - 152$ - 1,52

So according to this chart, it cost less per points to buy 70 points than 100!

Tell me this is a mistake and not an evil scheme to lure the mathematicaly challenged! :bandit:

On a related but different topic, I saw a few video that costed 2 pts but where 15mins of less than others that were 40+mins... And we can see the same discrepancy (sp?) with file size/points. It would be nice for the customer to see a standard point/time system.

I dont want to put a number on the value of the teaching of the tutors, this is priceless, only the tutor can value his time. I just wish to see some standard. Humm.. sound like I just contradicted myself :-S

edit: fixed the table...
edit2: cant fix the $/%/$% table to show right, sorry!

yes its true and your correct :p

we was indeed at the pub when we worked out the cost on a beer mat

I guess with the skeleman tut you are refering to the part that is infact 1 point over but aside that the rest are fine.

and yes as with every thing in life "things go up in price" no longer can we afford to give away 45 mins of tutorial for £1. We use over 18 gig per day in bandwidth, it amongst other things aint cheap...

Plus I sure as hell am not spending 14 hrs a day , 7 days a week, working on these sites for love.
