Storing every scrabble board possible

P: n/a
Here's an interesting discussing about storing every possible scrabble
board: Note that
PostgreSQL ends up being 12x larger than a theoretical custom storage
format, which isn't too bad considering the gymnastics going on in the
custom storage format. Also note the author's original brute-force
method is 5x larger than an improved method using PostgreSQL.

So, is anyone currently running a PostgreSQL database that's 6TB and
150B rows?
