Back when I used an ES/9000 in my parents house, I managed to attract the
attention of the law. There were two DEA agents from the local office
with one of the local sheriff's deputys with him. They showed up and
asked me if I was growing marijuana. I said something to the effect of,
"What gave you that idea?" They showed me a report from the power
company. I laughed and told them to come look for themselves. They were
quite unprepared for the size of my computer, I can tell you that. 8-)

Peace... Sridhar
