In the UK, authorities sometimes look out for odd things to find people
growing drugs in their house. One method is to look for unusually high
electricity bills. Another one is to fly around with a helicopter and IR
camera to look for particularly warm roofs.
So, for anybody here with an attic full of computers, have you had a visit
from the drug squad yet? ;)
I remember the first time that I saw Solaris x86 running. I asked why the
drive light was on solid. The person running the system shrugged and said he
had no idea, since no one was logged on and the system wasn't doing anything
at all. - Russ Allbery in The Other Place
