maybe this is time for compuserve to come back (I think I have the name
right), used to be able to buy cpu cycles on remove machines - basically
a shell account on a mainframe.

today netbook - connectivity anywhere / take anywhere - but no grunt.

I find with my atom, using syncplaces (a firefox addin), which encrypts
its files - it takes for ever, I am guess i am missing some of those
nice cpu op's that speed these things up.

But my netbook is lite, has loads of connectivity and I can always get
home to the big machine :)
