#2: Buy 7-day digital timers


In preparation for some nasty shocks (pardon the pun!) regarding how much power everything is using, I’ve purchased (from eBay incidentally), four digital timers which can be programmed for weekends as well as weekdays.

The thinking behind this is that we probably don’t need the flyzapper on at night (do flies come out at night?). Alternatively I guess the IT team could take regular showers, at which point there would be no need for a flyzapper, but lets take things one step at a time…

Do we need all of our internal network switches or wireless access points always on?

What about the fax machine (don’t we only get junk faxes at night?).

It’ll become apparent as to where the timers should be used once the results come back from the power-consumption tests.
