  • DreamHost offering free upgrades to unlimited bandwidth and space

    DreamHost sends out a monthly newsletter so I got the September issue in the middle of October and it seems they are giving out unlimited space and bandwidth if you are willing to beta test the new green hardware:

    1. New! System-wide Upgrades!

    What a lovely day today is! The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's
    beautiful and so are you! Nothing is going to change my world today,
    you'd have to be crazy to be in a funk with an environment like this!

    Which is why we're doing our part even more to help keep it that way.
    You might already know about our carbon offsets and what-not:

    Web Hosting by DreamHost Web Hosting: Web Sites, Domain Registration, WordPress, Ruby on Rails, all on Debian Linux!

    But the world is NOT ENOUGH! So, as I detailed in this blog post:

    DreamHost Blog Letís Save Our Environment Harder

    We will, over the next year or so, be transitioning ALL customers to new
    servers (with local disk) that should result in greater than 50% cost er
    energy savings in our data center!

    Happy, Happy, Year!

    2. Volunteer to Get Upgraded First!

    Pshaw. That whole upgrade plan sounds like a hell-hole death-march of
    busywork and problems, problems, problems. Haven't we ever heard of "If
    it ain't broke, don't fix it?" I only know one thing, and that's that
    no good can come of this.

    If you've got a suicidal bent, and can easily be bought because you have
    no principals, we've got an offer for you here:

    https://panel.dreamhost.com/?tree=billing.accounts

    If you actually VOLUNTEER to be one of the first moved to the new system
    your account will be "upgraded" to unlimited disk and bandwidth, forever.
    Of course, it's not like you'll use it, and it's of course subject to our
    "unlimited" policy. If you do decide to do it, you'd be a damn fool to
    not read the caveats listed there and *follow them*.

    Damned fool if you do, gonna get moved eventually anyway if you don't.
    Like most greedy people I figured I would move over early and get on the newer, faster hardware and it turns out that dalitz (the webserver this site is hosted on) is the new server so I didn't have to do anything other than click the link and new I have unlimite bandwidth and space.

    Okay, you've now got unlimited disk and bandwidth quotas for this account!

    And ha.. guess what? Your account was already on the new system! So, that's it.. you're done, nothing more to worry about!

    The Happy DreamHost Account Upgrading Robot!
    So for all DreamHost customers who are already on the dalitz sever, you're already on the hardware, I suggest you get in on this deal while it's still available.

    What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
    What we know is almost nothing at all
    But we are what we are 'til the day we die
    Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on
