Oh!  I'd be interested to hear about this as well, though I am unsure
about my availability on July 10th at this moment.  I'll try my best
to attend if this is presented...

Been having an issue recently with computers I maintain for work.  But
the issue is "one level up" from what you're talking about.  We're
actually tripping the circuit breaker.  Or...someone is.

Anyway, the solution is to get more circuits in the room and that's
something we're working on.  But I feel awful to have used computers
for so long...which all obviously use electricity :-P, but up to a
point, my understanding stops and I just think it's problem-free.  :-)
