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
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?!
