How to Save Energy When Using Your Computer
-------------------------------------------------------------

1. Lay down and type with one hand.

2. Never, ever read the linked articles.

3. Use a Tandy Model 100 laptop, dialed in with a 300 baud modem to your ISP, surfing the web with Lynx.

4. Do not turn your computer on, just stare at the pretty reflection in the monitor.

5. Use binocculars to watch your neighbor surf the web (or so you say).

6. Go wireless - just imagine what the web pages would look like in your mind.

7. Pick up a land-line phone and imitate a modem. If you're good, you can connect.

8. e = mc^2 - not sure how this helps, thought I would throw it out there,

9. Stop frowning when Thom posts another Software Patent article. EVERYONE knows you use less muscles when you smile :}

10. Don't thiink too hard about what you post!
