Interesting Fact of the Day……

Today most everything runs on electricity.  So, it’s not surprising that many companies look for alternative methods of generating electricity.  Some companies have gotten very creative in their endeavors to tap into alternative methods of generating electricity!

HP has proposed using cow manure to help power their data centers. WOW

According to InterestingFacts.Org, the manure that would be used will be from midsized dairy farms. Electricity will be derived form it by putting it through an anaerobic digester. The heat that is derived from this process would be used to power the turbines of the data centers cooling system. The electricity that is derived from this process will be used to power the data center. The temperature of the anaerobic digester would be regulated by the waste heat that is generated by the data center. This process ensures that there is maximum efficiency. This process also produces enough energy to be able to run the dairy farm. Thus one not only saves power use by the data centers but also the dairy farm.

Something to think about!!


Free operating system

I am on the hunt for a new laptop, and as my mind swirls from all the different choices to consider: hard drive, memory, screen size, etc……

Talk about information overload!  One thing I did come across during my research is a cool FREE operating system.  This is perfect for those of you who are constantly irritated with the various Microsoft operating systems.  It’s called Ubuntu.  Although, I have yet to download it, as I am borrowing currently borrowing a laptop…..I plan on checking it out as soon as I get my new laptop ordered!
