"The way things used to work, a single dime would grant you a Whispernet delivery of anything from a simple JPEG photo to a 120-page manuscript of your Xena: Warrior Princess fanfic novella. Now, Amazon has introduced a progressive payment scale, based on the size of the converted document.

Well I guess it was to be expected...
