**Thurs. installed WattsUp? software on Lisa's laptop. Hooked up the WattsUp? to record the laptops overnight energy usage. Downloaded data into the WattsUp? software. I'd say the software is pretty limited. If possible we should try to find a way to pull the collected data ourselves. I hope we can even create a real-time feed.

**Fri. met briefly with Kate to work on hot water audit.  Not much was decided. I got four of the five assigned chapter read.  Some of it was review, but I thought it was very useful and well put together.  The electrical safety section was especially interesting. I glanced over the fifth chpater and will finish it by Tue.
