    At least he is using it for something useful but wtf will he do if the power consumption is too high? Run home and turn something off?

    I was half expecting to read-
    7pm- Used 8 pieces of toilet paper.
    1.15am- Watching Playboy
    1.25am- No longer watching Playboy

    ...That kind of shizz. Damn people giving me hope for humanity.

    Maybe he can twit back to his house and it will turn off automatically

    What the hell is the proper verb to put there anyways? Is it twit? Tweet? Twat? I dunno :D

    you tweet on twitter.

    twitter is very useful for many things. It's not just "say what you're doing right now". it goes much deeper than that.

    while he might not be able to do anything immediately it gives him an overview of what is happening while he is not home, this then lets him set things more accordingly when he leaves methinks. once you know the overall usage and the time/days it happens on, broken down throughout the day it allows for future planning that is more efficient.

    pretty cool idea.

    Hi Andy. It's your toaster. I've been feeling really neglected since the misses bought that new "Toaster Oven." @*&%$ him, he's no better than me. Seriously, you guys haven't used me in months now. So, basically I'm tweeting to tell you that I'm outta here. When you get home I'll be gone and don't bother to come looking for me either. I'm going to a family that will appreciate my skills. Oh by the way, the VCR is coming with me. He's so pissed that you've left the clock blinking 12:00 for the last 9 years that the house might be trashed when you get here.

    Thanks for the memories... Jerk! :D
