Calculate Energy Costs!

What better day than Earth Day for me to post this...

A free web hosting service I use emailed me pretty much saying "take your stuff down we're closing shop in June..." so I considered hosting my own server... which led me to wonder if that would make sense or not given the hosting options out there...

I wrote a simple excel spreadsheet to calculate this and then figured I may want to calculate more stuff.. what if I dont have the Excel file with me, bla bla... So I took it to the web.

Here it is: the Kill-A-Watt Calculation Page!

Cost $0.876 per Year
Cost $0.073 per Month

How about setting that Excel sheet so that is uses currency? I very rarely come across currency smaller than a penny.
