the future will be filled with environment-friendly pirates!

somniloquy: the future will be filled with environment-friendly pirates on [technabob].

So you might be asking yourself what is this gizmo?  Well some scientists at the University of California in San Diego and from Microsoft have been working on this thing. Basically its a mini computer running a mini operating system which starts working once your main computer goes into sleep mode. The reason for all this is to get your computer to use less electricity while its performing task that dont really have you around but still have the computer working. Basically downloading files and other similar task, Apparently it uses as little as 10 % of the energy a normal computer would use. Id like to see what it could do with virtualizing a media server that would be sick. Shit I’d run this blog off of it too. Check out the link above for more info on it I’ll be keeping an eye out.
