Hidden account number contest


Congratulations to James Adkins


for recognizing his account number in last month’s issue. The other number belonged to Monty Cates. We have hidden two account numbers somewhere in the articles in this newsletter. The numbers will always be enclosed in parentheses and will look similar to this example (XXXXXX).


If you recognize your account


number, all you have to do is give us a call on or before the 8th of the current month and we’ll give you a credit on your bill for the amount stated.


This month’s numbers are worth $25 each. Happy hunting!

t takes less energy to switch your home computer on and off, even several times a day, than it does to let it run while nobody’s using it. To save energy—and some mon- ey—make use of your computer’s “sleep mode” and power manage- ment features.


Here are some general rules for


energy-efficient computer use: • Turn off the monitor if the com- puter will sit unused for more than 20 minutes.


• Switch the whole thing off if you’ll walk away from it for more than two hours.


• Use your computer’s “sleep”


mode. The feature will power down your computer once it senses no ac- tivity for an extended time. Energy Star estimates that sleep mode can save you up to $30 a year on your electric bill.
