Birthdays Galore!

Two birthdays this week, my youngest brother Mike turns 21! And here is a photo of him practising for the big occasion.

And my beautiful mother celebrates her birthday the day after Mikes. I wont be seeing either of them till much later in the week but I promise I've bought birthday presents!

More Ways to Save the Planet

This free little app (only 2.5 megs!)keeps a running total of how much power you save by managing your PCs power use. It gives reading in terms of power saved, trees saved and barrels of oil saved. So far 6000 users have signed up and have saved 177 trees!

More than 30 billion kilowatt-hours of energy is wasted because many of us simply forget to shut down our computers when we’re not using them. If we could just improve the efficiency of how we use our PCs, the savings in energy costs would be over $3 billion dollars! The CO2 emissions from just 15 computers are equivalent in energy terms to the gas consumption used by one car.

So sign up today! Its free and saves the planet!
