	I've considered the idea to be that you're using the electrons anyway, 
by running boxen 24/7, so why not put them to work?

	The amount of power drawn by a machine with 100% busy CPUs is not that 
greater than one with idle CPUs - just ask my UPS. Of course, I'm 
talking about dual-cpu boxen, not quad or 8-way.

	I mean, if you have machines dedicated to dnet, that's cool, but a 
little shortsighted don't you think?

A limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical.
         But the good ones I've seen
         So seldom are clean,
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.
