Have you done the math? Your home page is 916kb. Multiply that by 60K views and you get 55GB. That of course is assuming these views aren't cached, and also assuming your views are on that home page only (I presume other pages might have even more content). So yes, exceeding 100GB seems quite doable.
By the way, your chat routine does send session info back and forth to the server about every 8-10 seconds. It's only 57 bytes, but I just noticed since I hadn't closed the window to your site, I created a few hundred bytes of traffic. I don't know how long that would take to add up to 100GB though
