In The House of Tofu

February 20th, 2008

I always check to see how visitors get to this site.   Checking the weblogs daily can give some laughs occasionally.  It seems someone wants to “pineapple salsa blue coast buy”, another wants “recipes with cheetos” and somebody is concerned that there may be toxins hidden in their cheesy-tasting flakes and so they search for the “safety of nutritional yeast flakes”.

Here’s my favorite today:

Greening Your Computer

January 29th, 2008

I once left my computer on 24/7, only shutting it down when I left home for extended periods. Since buying our home and trying to keep it as green as possible I have started shutting it down every night and when not in use. Leaving a computer on contributes 1,500 pounds of CO2 to the atmosphere each year (WARNING: PDF link). If you must leave that quad-core box with 6 SATA drives and SLI video running constantly consider visiting climateprediction.net and joining a distributed computing program that can map climate change and its impact. I am running the application and it seems to be very unintrusive and takes up very little system resources.

Find out more about the project at climateprediction.net.
