Yeah! Well, I don't see no bottle of Highland Park (18 yo), so I don't believe

I guess the real question, at least for me, is "What really is Grid Computing?" 
and "How can database systems use grid computing?".
When I think of grid, I think of seti@home. I am having a hard time picturing 
how database systems would spread the workload.
