We're chained to our computers, thinking about fly fishing.

Martin's disk space rebuttal: I agree. But let's think about New Year's!!!
Yep, Martin hit it on the head with his musing on the hosting industry. But I kinda figure that the hosting industry can only sell what they can measure on a set of accounting books. Bandwidth is a flaky thing to measure, therefore, it becomes tough to bill against. Disk space is nothing more than a fixed asset on the balance sheet in which they need a return for on the P&L. Hence, "let's charge out the @ss for our assets and make some big $$!". Well, we partners have been musing ourselves on how to cure ourselves of this dreadful disease: being raped by the hosting business. We'll get back to you on this...we have some pretty sneaky ideas in store!
