With power use and its (and budgetary) impact in mind, I've finally removed BOINC from my devices and factory reset 9 phones/tablets that weren't really contributing much to their projects anymore.

These devices are well past their lifespan, so I'll be dropping them off for .

I've also cleared BOINC off my main computer, and for the first time in ages, turned it off for the night.

How much power will this save? Probably around 3-4 kWh/day... Maybe a touch more. It isn't much, but over the course of a year, that's at least 1095 kWh, which would have dropped last year's annual total back under 10 MWh.

Given that both & are still used for power generation here, every little bit helps.
