Two small lemmas

Two friends kindly pointed out to me that I will have power issues next year at MIT. Since most dorm rooms have one circuit (good for about 2kW), I can at most run two out of the following three items simultaneously: {computer, refrigerator, air conditioning}.

A friend suggested that I schedule all rendering and compute jobs late at night since the power grid will not be as hosed and to automate the modulation of my fridge/AC usage during the day. I also won't be helping the situation with a near-imminent upgrade to dual Nvidia GTX 580s, either.
