My Favorite Quotes Shaw

Technorati Profile

“This is the true joy in life — being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one… being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.

Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations.” 

~ George Bernard Shaw

Stick It Back to PG&E Using the Smartmeter.

I log into PGE every third day now, just to sharpen my conservation moves, and saving about $40/month by doing so. If you got to have that meter, use the SOB and and cut PGE out of some of the profit they hope to get from it. Keep in mind, that by knowing what everyone uses and when, they can very carefully buy as little additional energy futures as possible, and maximize their profits, while sticking us with the costs of the meters. Open an account and don't let them get away with this. You'll also run up their hosting tab, and put them on notice that we are ticked off.
