I've never heard of it before.. :-)

At VPAC we did use the "ts" option to mark the login node as
"timeshared" for jobs on the copyq (an idea shamelessly knocked off
from APAC/NCI/ANU in Canberra - Hi Dave) but I'm not sure if it ever
got much use.

But no, I don't believe we use shared at all here.

cheers!
