True, very true.

Depends on where you live (about electricity, not horses) - in
Montreal, lots of people heat with electricity, which means that during
the heating season the electricity to run computers is free. (Pull a
kilowatthour of power, get .86 megacalories of heat; whether it happens
in a big resistor along the baseboards or in intricate patterns of
silicon and aluminum matters little.)
