+1 ghettocruiser. A lot of appliances use quite a bit of electricity in "standby" mode. Seems one of the best places for a powerstrip is at the TV/DVD/Stereo and computer. Doesn't hurt.

Left hand! I end up shifting a lot with my right so my left hand can go numb in races or hard rides from not moving it as much. Using my left for the water bottle keeps it moving.
