Re: Seasonally adjusted simultaneous user pricing

LegiSlate had this in its pricing, though I'm not sure if it's still true
because we only subscribed for one year.  We had a certain number of ports
from 8-5 pm and more ports after 5.  Also it strikes me that LEXIS-NEXIS
used to offer (or require) off-peak-use for customers coming in on
educational discounts.
