I dunno… has that VW microbus moved in the last 20 years? Pretty creepy. I’d be a bit concerned about entering…

[Ad] You can afford this – even if you can't afford a house

Can’t afford a 1 bedroom condo home in San Jose?

Well, worry not – you can afford a great web home!

Let me introduce you to Dreamhost – the hosting provider that Burbed.com uses.
For just $119.40 a year (or $190.80 for 2 years – a 20% savings!) you get 200GB of disk space, 2TB of bandwidth, and one free domain name registration.

Yep… 200GB – not 200MB. It’s like having a McMansion in Oregon, for the price of a mobile home in Sunnyvale. And like the Winchester Mysterious Mansion, your space and bandwidth will automatically grow each week.
And, if you click this link and enter “burbed” as the promo code, you get $10 off. Click and check out the amazing features you get at these low prices.

Sign up today, and help Burbed.com out! This makes a great gift for someone for the holidays.
Thanks!

Not a lot of details for this “house” (if that’s what it is) right now – but if they market it as “nice quiet neighborhood”, I think I’ll asplode.
