How else am I suppose to heat my apartment and keep the kitties warm :-). Power to the people, give it up and you won't get it back.

Its also not Green! All these people leaving computers on 24x7 to do
one mailbox. 1000 PC's shutoff for an additional 12 hours a day (or in
sleep mode) is 1200Kilowatt-hours (figure 120watts for your PC) a day
saved (28,000Kwhrs a month - enough monthly power to run 25 homes). And
I would venture to say, and this is a complete estimate, that in all of
Philly and surrounding areas, maybe a couple 1000 people run their PC's
24x7 just to run a few services like smtp - and it could easily be
more. Each person would save about $5.60 a month in power - and you can
easily afford a hosting package for that.
