Those of us who spend a good deal of our time in cyberspace may have missed the fact that this weekend marked the 26th anniversary of Earth Day. Unfortunately, I am old enough to remember the first Earth Day in 1970. I was a senior in high school and we had celebrated by having a special schedule that day that included shortened classes and a rock concert in the auditorium for most of the afternoon. I did the light show. Seems like yesterday.
Anyway, PC Magazine had a good tip this week regarding conserving power when your beast is not operating. Seems they make some pretty smart power strips these days. Check it out.
