I've read the article, and I'm not sure if I'm in violation. :)

I've got a series of graphs I generate in R to illustrate backup activity. These are scaled, primarily, in bytes. But different activities have different costs per byte, and I augment the bytes scale with dollars.

So the blue series corresponds to tbe blue dollars scale (and bytes) and the green and red points correspond to the green scale (and bytes).
