Maybe It has had an automated quoting algorithm
ever since I worked for them in late '99.

    Hi Todd,
    Notice on their patent abstract, they satae "online or offline".
    While I am not sure of anyone doing this online earlier than 2000,
    it seems pretty obviuos that the steps they outline are pretty much
    what most service bureaus have always done offline.
    Seems that with enough money and persistance anything can be pushed
    through the USPTO. Back in the early 1980s the "combover" was
    patented, though the assignees have never tried to enforce it.
    I believe I ran across an online system prior to Quickparts, but
    just cant recall who it was. Anyone with a better memory than me
    recall anything???
