Sitting at an idle Gnome desktop, this thing sucks up 153W of power. I
was almost scared to push it. But I did anyway.
Pulling Linus' latest git tree into my local tree sucked up 216W of
power at its peak.
Just when I thought I'd seen it all, a
-j4 kernel compile
of that same tree pulled 258W.
I no longer leave this box on 24/7.

Dave used the
Kill-a-Watt to measure the power consumption of his equipment. I think
it's something we could use at Casa New Jersey, since our power bills are a
bit high (then again, we do use Lake
Worth Utilities, which charges more than FPL).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
