I'm assuming that they're banking on a 100:1 oversell - which is probably reasonable. I wonder what they would do if I actually started using that 2TB every month...

BTW, Read Dreamhost's "About Us" page. It's a riot. I can just imagine two Claremont dropouts running the whole shebang on an old Dell with UML virtual systems out of their dorm. Refreshing honesty about everything being virtual (no wonder oversubscribtion has to be so great).
Oh yeah, http://www.chiyochan.net/ is hosted at Dreamhost. Apparently it was a hobby of one of the founders.

I have a good use for heaps of cheap bandwidth and disk space - even if it's not 100% reliable - but I doubt Dreamhost would be happy with me using 20TB of disk and 200TB of bandwidth a month.
