Lords call for the end of TV transmissions

Electricity Bill?

I would be interested to know how the power consumption compares between broadcast and internet; for example a TV transmitter might consume a few MW but serve maybe 100000 homes and with no additional costs as # users increase. A broadband pipe to each home could end up consuming considerably more power and will scale by user numbers. Comments?

Tweaknow Regcleaner (free)

How about this - been around a long time but the latest version includes reg cleaner, startup manager, uninstall etc. To get the best effect in regcleaner you have to go options> extreme scan.

Also there is a MS program called 'autoruns' which is good for analysing startup bloat
