So it's even worse for us - R3 per dollar (R5 per pound) - so what we did is 
go for Nentrez, the network Entrez, which works WONDERFULLY!!  FTP in to 
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov and go for entrez and dig till you get the win version.  
Allows all sorts of wonderful searches, semi-online, and it's FREE.  Simply 
email to a Jonathan Epstein (epstein at gold.nlm.nih.gov) and give him your IP 
address (or that of your server iff you want >1 people connected), and then 
fire up the software.

Happies,
