Ah yes.

A 'borg' is a folding machine that you don't pay electricity/internet for , but are allowed to use , an example being a work computer that management says "yes you can fold on it".

As opposed to a 'bot' which would be a machine you don't pay electricity for , and '"don't" have permission to fold with. ( frowned upon !)

Another term you might hear is 'boxen' .... That's what the computers is your 'farm' are called.
