One big mistake within the whole calculation: I don't run
my computer to crunch blocks but to work on it. The only
thing I contribute to Dnet is the spare cycles when my CPU
has nothing to do at all - which is about 98% of its up
time (or how much CPU power does _your_ editor/mail client/
office suite use?).

cheers,
