Greg is reading this.

But Greg doesn't understand enough to be useful.  So maybe someone can 
draw me a picture, or point me to a previously drawn picture that I may 
have studiously ignored.  The picture should answer these questions:

1. What does a developer need to do to make an application "grid aware"?

2. What does a user need to do to farm out activity to the grid?

3. What application could be a test case for this grid functionality?
