I have to wonder about the electricity cost vs a $40 ~1GHz system from 
freegeek.  Old power supplies were terribly innefficient (not that some 
newer ones aren't) and the old CPU does a lot less computation per kWh.

(Meanwhile, pondering trade-off of deploying some really inefficient 
code vs the carbon footprint of writing a replacement.)
