Just starting out

Finally entered the world of blogging.  The charts are from my home power monitor and represent real-time power usage.  Pachube is a beta service and sometimes they have problems so if the charts don't work right, just refresh the page.  If that doesn't work, refresh again.

The dial guage is on a 15 minute refresh cycle but the various line graphs refresh only on a page reload.  The graphs and such will change as I try new stuff out.

Meanwhile, take a look at my narrative on controlling the power usage of my home here in the desert.  It's the tab at the top of these 'comments'.
