Hello everyone,

Been busy here lately with work and many projects of my own, none of them involving art.....no time for that right now, hehe.  Everything is going very well around here.  I would be upset about not being able to work on some art, but I'm keeping myself busy enough to not worry much.  I do have a notepad with a hell of a lot of ideas for various posters =P

But, like the title says....I do need some help.  Well, more ideas than help, really.

You see, I am in the process of upgrading my computer, and I'll be left with an entirely workable computer (processor, memory, motherboard, storage, and optical drives).  The thing is....what can I do with that?  I'll give you 5 seconds to get over the mandatory "send it to me!" remarks, which are perfectly fine and funny (hell, i'd say it too).  Done? Okay!  What I mean is what use I can give it.  

It was suggested that I turn it into a server.  Okay....what kind? and what for?  A linux server has been suggested also.  But what can i do with it?  Considering that I'd be using the hell out of the new one, what would use it for, other than to say "oh yea I have a linux server." But overall, what kind of server could I make out of it, and how can i benefit from it? Oh, keep in mind that I plan on shutting it down often, so a server that needs to have 100% uptime is out of the question.  

Any alternatives other than a server? Big-ass paperweight? Speed bump? Particle accelerator? Time machine (need flux capacitor and 1.21 gigawatts power supply, by the way)? WHAT DO DO, WHAT TO DO?!

Send it to... oh wait. :doh:

- Sell it, use the money for new pants!
- Donate it to a charity.
- Turn it into a Home Theatre PC
- Send it to me
- Send it to me
- Send it to me
- Set both PC's up next to each other so you can multi-task better. Browse, chat, etc on one - work on the other.

A logical thing to do is donate to a kids home or something?

Thats always a good idea if i dont end up using it. Rather do that than have it away collecting dust!

leave the harddrives, extra space for photo is always welcomed, sell the rest, and buy yourself something nice ;) servers are always problem, linux or not, they are time eaters :P

I'd keep them for a server for backup.
