To go even further off-subject, I had a wood rat in my garage for a month or so. There were dried, brown, pee puddles on my workbench and in one corner of the floor I ended up having to wash the slab with a bleach solution. I finally bought a live trap and caught and released it. It was actually very healthy and quite beautiful. A lot nicer looking than the one my German Shepherd killed (eventually) and partially ate years ago.

To remove the discussion even one step further, we had a rat as a pet when I was growing up. The tame ones (white ones from the store) actually are great pets, I suppose a "wild" one could be good too if you got it young enough to train it from the start to like people.
OK, we have crossed the line, thread drift is established. Uh, OH, Ah,
....... you need a Kill a watt on your machine to see exactly how much power it is using.
Whew! back on track :D
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
Mythbusters proved this out, there is such a minimal difference between the two concepts, it did not make a difference.
where I used to live, the power rating for my house was based on 1 100 watt lightbulb and one basic refridgerator. Any power used over that was charged at a higher rate. So my 5 bedroom two story house at 2300 sq feet was a power sucker.
