I wanted to learn how to write desktop widgets, like Yahoo or Google. Unless it already exists, I’d like to write a simple widget that displays the energy cost of running a computer. My computer probably uses 0.2kW/hour * 12 hours/day * 30 days/month * $0.10kW/hour = $7/month. That’s $84/year. It can’t be that hard. I should outsource it.
