Hmm...I'm a bit skeptical here. I'd like to hear more about this. My
impression was that Juniata was still applying the green to PC power. I
don't know why new units from the builders would be any different. I'll
have to go thru my files to see if I have any info that would shed light on
this. I hope someone else could give us a definititive answer.

My guess is that J. Edgar would be pleased. He admired efficiency and was
tight withn a penny and was a no-nonsense kind of guy--I think he'd fit
right in with the NS crowd.
