A wee bit of graphical encouragement to minimise use of power in the Forum & Bayes building over the break. The dips in electricity consumption every winter vacation can be seen in this graph of electricity consumption in the Forum (click for larger version; note that contrary to the label this graph does not include Bayes operation).
So please follow the Winter Shutdown advice: ensure windows are closed, blinds are down (especially on street-level windows) and equipment is powered-off, where possible.
Feel free to shutdown your desktop – you should be able to wake it up remotely even if you have powered it off.
Heating will be reduced in the Informatics Forum and Bayes, during the closure period; however the heating buttons on each floor will work and will a provide a one hour boost.
Happy Christmas and a good New Year!
