    My guess is having your computer on 24/7 is costing an extra $30-40 USD a month.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    I get electric cheap (real cheap) because I have a dodgy meter. You can put a magnet near it to make it start going again, so I clock the readings on the meter up a little so the electric people won&#39;t think my meter is dodgy, so they won&#39;t replace it. And since it only looks like I&#39;m using a fifth of normal I only have to pay a fifth of normal.

    I have about 3 electic heaters running 24/7, and they really eat power, yet I pay hardly anything compared to what it would cost with them all on

    I don&#39;t really know what I pay, I think it must be like 60 per quarter at most.

    PCs usually do not use much power at all so I doubt that it would kick up your bills much.

    60 is about &#036;90.

    I get that much every month, which is still high for the UK for a single guy (with girlfriends ) and no kids.
