My new netbook, and Acer Aspire One. This one is running Windows XP and is functioning as the server that uploads data to http://bbbrown.mysolarlog.com/ . It takes the place of a headless Dell machine running Windows Vista. This change reduces energy consumption of the server by 1.22 kwh per day. This is a significant savings over the old machine and is just one little bit of energy that we are no longer consuming. It is amazing how many small things we have plugged in that are sucking small amounts of energy. It all adds up.
Well, who reads this stuff? Probably a handful if any but it sure is fun to write these random, or maybe not so random, thoughts and ideas. Maybe a thousand years from now if anyone is still alive they will dredge up these electrons and see what life was like back in the early 2,000s and late 1900's.
