Once again time to point to the "Top 10 Signs why You are a VAX Geek."
7. Your electricity bill is more than your monthly rent payment.
5. You don't have an SO, but it's okay because your computer keeps
   you warm at night.
2. Your house is pleasantly warm in the dead of winter, even with the
   conditioning turned all the way up.

I measured the power consumption of my Alpha DEC 3000-600: 230 W. Even
my newish 500 MHz Alpha and the Indigo2 (on topic since 1.1. ;-) ) are
only at about 140..150 W.
