Glocal Cooling

No, that's not a misspelling (and misspelled is also not misspelled BTW). "Glocal" is my new term for actions that you can do locally but affect things globally. This won out narrowly over the term 'lobal' which might actually be a word in itself.

Anyways, Local Cooling is a new free power management tool. It's great, has a nice little interface and just the right amount of features, including (my favorite) don't shut the PC off if a particular application is running. It also estimates the power that your machine uses and how many trees/gallons of gas/kilowatt hours you are saving. For Windows XP only - it wold be nice if they open source it to get it going in many operating systems.
