Next stop on energy saving: LEDs.

I just started my next new technology and energy saving experiment. Switched several lights in our house from energy saving bulbs to leds. The first LEDs area available with enough brightness to replace standard energy saving bulbs we normally use in our house.
So here we go. My light on my computerdesk is now from leds. Which means instead of consuming about 7 Watt of energy they now consume only 2 watt !
Will follow the development but it already looks very promising. And besides, my "old" notebook is not on so often. Cause my new netbook only needs about 25 watt in opposite to about 60-70 watt my standard notebook needs ;)
Or even better, my smartphone uses only 6 watt and i can check email on it and surf the web.
So think about the appliance you use and try to use the thing most energy effficient !

A great quote on religion

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
- Steven Weinberg

I will leave that uncommented ;)
