I'm also a bit bothered by the thought of people losing their jobs to an electronic device.

Do you use ATM's? Self checkout at the store? Self serve gas? By your logic we should dig foundations by hand with small trowels to create more work.

Sorry. Sad but true. Reality is a harsh mistress...

On topic, mine got replaced (SoCal Edison though) without my being asked. Now my bill includes a nice graph showing me how much more electricity I consume than my neighbors.

I think it's fiction though. The house is heated by gas, I rarely run the AC, the kitchen is gas, and my wife and I live here alone and watch the lights etc. My only extravagance is to proudly light the American Flag at night, and that is a low voltage light. My neighbors on the other hand light up pools and tennis courts until all hours, and have all other sorts of lighting on all night. Maybe it's the stereo, those amps do dim the lights for a moment when I turn 'em on...

time to pile on Ron

when i see "Ron" and "shot up" in the same context, i start to worrying about your foot

did thew dollar value of your bill go or the power consumption, or both?
