The only "cloud" I'm familiar with is the one that graphically represents a
WAN connection made over a dial-up line, as opposed to a direct, subscriber
line. The dial-up connection is physically different each time it's made and
can't truly be represented by a line; hence, the cloud. I've never seen the
connected computers referred to as "clouds" of computers, though.
