Thanks for that comment --- it's amazing how much knowledge we're rediscovering in computing. It's almost as if we're coming out of some kind of dark age.
One thing that struck me was a comment on a Slashdot story about a "breakthrough" in data center energy optimization. The comment showed that the problem of deciding when to boot up additional servers to meet demand was isomorphic to the problem of steam boiler management --- right down to the start-up and constant energy costs --- and that the problem had already been thoroughly addressed in literature from the turn of the last century.
