  I'm right there with you.  It's getting cold here, and we still
haven't turned the heater on.  We're keeping the place warm with my
production network, augmented (!) with a big SGI Origin 2000, running
seti@home. ;)

  I had thought to fire up a VAX 7000, but I haven't come up with a good
and at least marginally-useful way to put a constant heavy load on it.
