In California, it's almost $50 a month for a 380W server. I switched to an old 14W netbook with an SSD and a 4TB drive hanging off the USB 2 port, which acts as a file server just as well. It can't transcode, but I store everything in MP4 anyway. I turned off the Wifi and Bluetooth radios and saved another 4W.

Comment Re:Experience with Tesla (Score 1) 257

My local Mercedes dealer tried to rip me off, telling me I needed rotors when I only needed pads (the rotors are visible through the wheels and you could easily see they were fine). When I asked them for the rotor measurement, they were suddenly interested in replacing them for free, but only after they realized they couldn't rip me off.
