The Green madness rolls on
THE Government is to outlaw standby switches on televisions and video and DVD players to cut the amount of electricity wasted in the home
If I can't leave my video on stand by how do I get it to record when I'm not there? And as the Government's own research unit - http://www.mtprog.com/ - says a lot of this "wasted" energy - which turns into heat - is substituting for other heating sources. I never have to worry about a heater in my office as the mighty 486 ticks over.
But the greenies won't be happy until we have been beaten back to the stone age.
