I really really hope this actually works and not just someone trying to make a clever video based on what's happening in the Middle East.

From the Youtube description:

If you don't have electricity: Get two batteries and dunk them in the cup of water for 1 or 1 1/2 hours and then link the mobile phone with USB cable to the water! Great improvised technique for those traveling through revolution areas, or maybe just backpacking somewhere and you don't have electricity.

From the submitter:

A roll of plastic and three hours later, we could completely turn off one of the cooling units, which had been on full blast for years. The servers now breath in only cold air from the cooling units, and the cooling units only warm air from the servers.

Frankly, I am shocked and appalled that they found the blueprints to TIFI's server room.

Sure he costs a fair amount in diesel, but he shows up on time and always provides a ride. But like a real drummer, don't ask him to do anything in 3/4 time.
