    It's a good idea, really. The company sees a need for greater comutational power. Instead of just buying more iron they use their heads and farm out the jobs to idle machines they already own.

    It makes the engineer in my very happy.

    What makes me jealous is 20,000 CPUs * 110 points per day average = 2,200,000 points per day. :eek:
