OK, so you've got the running costs. Let's just look at that:
<clamp meter on 4-way extension strip cable to my PC>
... about 200 watts, less a bit for the hifi amp and mixer that are
currently running. Say 120-150 watts for a Duron 1100 and a 19"
monitor, that is run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Probably about as
much power as the cooling fans alone in my PDP11 rack.
Not really a lot, is it?
