I'm so glad someone got some use out of it.  It was costing me way  
too much money in electricity to run.  Of course I have no idea how  
much it really pulled since I was going on what the landlady told  
me.  I now get my own electricity bills.  When I was running a  
Proliant 6400, two SCSI shelves, a NetApp FC9, and an RS/6000 F50, I  
was pulling 33% on my Matrix 3000 (1 bat).  I was getting 4-500$  
power bills in the height of summer.  I went down to just the FC9 and  
my RS/6000 B80 and was doing about $380.  It should go down because  
my FC9 had a failed disk and so I've powered the shelf off and I'm  
using the B80 for plain DNS until I move.  The FC9 looks like it  
sucked as much power as the B80 itself.
