I assumed incorrect units stated
if the average US home uses, as you put, it 1.25kWh /24hrs that's less than a couple of low energy lightbulbs.
I believe the 30kW figure was really 30kWh or in layman's terms 30 measured units of electricity.
If the price of 'leccy in US is going the same way as it here in Blighty that 30 is gonna get cut down soon! £0 would be a reasonable figure if you have A/C, but sounds crazy to me as our average is around 10kWh/24hr period, but then i only have the A/C on when the sun is shining - ie its hot and the solar panels are making the juice :)
Re: Thanks for the money but your stuffed.
Maybe not the best point to make in a debate about essentially iot rubbish, but my point on UT stands.
It was a stand-alone game, yes you can play on line, but here in-sticks 23yrs ago, there was barely anything other than dial-up available.
yes lots of 3rd party servers are available, but one day how ever long it was ago, i thought.... hey i fancy a game of UT only to find that the official server had been turned off. yes, some googling later a alternative & a patch were found, but it did not say , on the packaging, the outside of the packaging, prior to purchase of a physical media game, that the internet was required or that it would turn off at some point and take all your achievements with it.
for the record, i still play UT, it works a treat on W10 even.
XP/ 7 - I was joking, sorry maybe should have used an icon.
Gotta go, time for a round of Quake ;)
As others have commented, the guff just fills out to use the resource. I remember Windows 3.11, it was such a marked difference over 3.1 for speed, but M$ soon learned the error of their ways & went back to shovelling in tons of "pretty" guff.
Microsoft makes tweaks to Windows 11 Start Menu for Insiders but stops short of mimicking Windows 10
Want to check out Windows 11 but don't want to buy a new PC? Here's how to bypass the hardware requirements
Still using Office 2003 thanks
It just works. used it on XP, 7 and now 10. even 10 on a tablet. given all the M$ BS about 'tablet centric ui design" or whatever marketing said, 2k3 still just works.
why the hell should i learn where M$ has put the bloody buttons this week. Office, and Windows are both tools. no one has redesigned the hammer in the last 20yrs, functionality can be added without fucking up the UI every time.
Someone should try and point that out to marketing.

Hogwash. built in obsolescence is a key feature of the whole economy.
Just compare a 20yr old Audi with one now, or Merc, or Bimmer.
Back to IT matters. Name one good valid reason why i needed to change from Windows 7 to 10?
So M$ could flog W10. thats it.

Re: 2 fingers to GCHQ then
LOL. You'll never know :)
I knew this would get a butt-laod of down-votes. I've been getting that since vista came out, i looked at, stood back and proclaimed "fuck that"
3rd party firewall, plus nat plus another nat & firewall. no-script. add block. no explorer, no outlook.
I clean peoples machines of infections on a daily basis almost, but not mine strangely in spite of some healthy pr0n & wares surfing.
Unfortunately, i can't tell you any more or i'll have to kill you ;)
2 fingers to GCHQ then
I still do interweb banking & send emails using XP, surely i should have been hacked to bits by now?
Prob because i don't use a browser made by M$ nor an email client by them.
W10 is just as infectable as xp,7 and the others in between if your a muppet & click on the *free* whatever links etc
