  • Subtract the year in which dreamhost.com was registered.
  • Add in the amount of money we would pay affiliates for sending us three direct referrals using the “one-time payment” option.
  • Add the year that Dan Johnson was deploying crickets in the government sector.
  • Subtract the date in the month of July when Simon Anderson became DreamHost’s CEO.
  • Multiply by the first two digits of our “Community Manager” job posting’s tracking code.
  • Subtract the monthly cost of configuring 2800 MB of RAM on a DreamHost VPS.
  • Subtract the year we became an ICANN-accredited domain registrar.
  • Divide by the number of requests per second DreamHost.com received while we were hosting the “Draw Mohammad Day” website.
  • Make yourself a stiff drink.
  • Call your mother. Tell her you love her.
  • Bathe. Please.
  • Post your final number in the comments below.

We’ll ship this lovely piece of phone augmentation to the first correct answer we see.
