It is the day after Thanksgiving and it is time to get creative with the leftovers, but really, how many ways can you serve turkey? You may be surprised what people do to make sure they get the most out of their Thanksgiving meal – like my turkey quesadillas for example.
It seems, however, that the American family isn’t the only one trying to get the biggest bang for their buck. Earlier this week I was very entertained when I read about the creative solutions being proposed to battle power consumption in the data center. How about putting data centers on decommissioned ships in order to get rid of waste heat into the ocean or reusing hot water from cooling systems to fill the town swimming pool? One large health care center is looking at reusing hot water expelled by its cooling system to do its laundry, according to Subodh Bapat, VP for Energy Efficiency at Sun Microsystems in an article published at Infoworld.com.
