    Exactly! Its good to keep hardware going as long as possible but there does come a time when they really cant be much use

    Keep a couple for some of the Linux based ideas people have suggested and perhaps one for a computer museum?!, but you're probably best off getting shot of the rest

    Yeh..

    Computer printer servers, would work but bit bulky and use my big server for printer queues.

    Dominos -- Sound good, maybe then burn em!

    Network monitoring, tempting but then I think I got an old 500mhz pent or something I could use. While on topic I was starting to setup Nagios the other day.. much needed here.

    I think Linux browser or scrap.. sort of hoped I could donate them somewhere but with the price of h/w who the hell would want them now? Seeing you can often find 1ghz machines in a skip these days! oh well

    Yep. There was a project in Lancaster a while back to take a van load of P1 machines, to use as LTSP clients, over to Nigeria and they weren't allowed to donate them as they were too old! So even the 3rd world countries don't want em.
