   good point. however, my guess is that we can save 
more money on electricity by improving lights than 
by improving computers. doing both seems a good 
thing. 
   as to lights, LEDs are relatively expensive and 
their reliability is as yet unproven (i think a 
matter of assembly in the manufacturing process 
rather than intrinsic failure of LEDs themselves). 
Seems to me best that we figure out places where 
LED lamps can be well-used and then beg for 
donations rather than spend money from noisebridge 
coffers.
