Lending my computer when not in use

I've heard of a computer firm that uses other people's computers which would otherwise be inactive after work hours, in order to execute heavy tasks, thus distributing the burden among many online CPU's.
Any information on Web site \ method \comments on this?
Thanks!!!

The only example I've seen of this is the encryption cracking effort being run by Distributed.Net.  See www.distributed.net for details.
