Some time back, Bob Edwards commented that he'd found the remote  
control powerboards drew about 17W on their own, but that this was  
easily modifiable to reduce the standby current drain to about 3W.

For the life of me I can't find the post.  What I really want is the  
information that Bob didn't disclose, but for the moment just humour  
me: where did I go wrong with these Google searches?

  - remote control powerboard bob edwards
  - standby remote control +site:lists.samba.org
  - remote board 17W +site:lists.samba.org

Can someone come up with a link to the post in question? We were  
discussing turning off computers at the wall due to the high standby  
current draw of some devices.  I can't even remember how long ago it  
actually was.

And finally, if Bob is reading this, are you at liberty to discuss the  
modification that reduces the current draw of the powerboard?  I'm  
getting weary of fighting through the dust puppies to get to the wall  
sockets under my computer desk :)
