Grid Computing     I know that personally I'm probably a big electricity waster considering that I've got more computers than most ordinary people. Two of them have been basically on-demand file servers with SAMBA. I have one machine now that I cart back and forth from work that I do all of my primary development and a laptop that hosts Windows 2000 because our world is a very cruel one. I'm wondering how grid computing would be useful within a family-- closer to home, rather than to some pharmaceutical company folding proteins or nationally supported Al-Qaeda distributed cracking system.
