Space Heater [Nov. 14th, 2000|07:21 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I got a little tiny Vornado space heater and I'm absolutely in love with the thing.... it's small, quiet, nice looking, and it heats my room in under a minute. Absolutely amazing. My room's all nice and toasty now. I'm going to hook it up to my X-10 hardware and program it to turn off at 2am in the morning and turn back on before I wake up .... kick ass.

Electric Bill * 2/12 = what Brad pays. No more of this 1/11th crap, those things suck up the juice like mad :-)

Re: New Math

Yeah....I was thinking about that but I don't know. I think I need something a little more creative than that.

Re: New Math

How about some coin-op video games? Not only will they use up some power, but if anyone wants to play them, you can tell them you lost the key, and they'll have to pay.

Re: New Math

Get some solar panels and place them outside.. you may get some heat during daylight :)

Re: New Math

ooh yeah, that sounds good.. When it's hot outside, you'll be able to bake eggs on your computer case inside!

Somehow this sounds like like the idea of a solar powered flashlight to me:)
