    What fun/creative/educational things can be done for free?

    Right, im in need of some creative types!

    I have a server Dual Xeon 4Gb 1.5Tb space Server 2003, which I have sitting doing nothing that needs a new lease of life!

    There is one catch, I dont have the server indefinatly so whatever it does must be able to transfer to new/old hardware if its viable.

    So I ask you clever lot... what can I do with it that costs nothing but time?

    Thanks

    fill it full of water, fabricate some waterproof LEDS and clear panels and you have good fish tank.

    PS serious one, Print server, A backup server, theres endless possibilities! but the funny ones are best

    turn it into a DVR! or into an old school arcade machine, maybe a bit big for these ideas but it less life threatening than a fish tank

    Write 'flux capacitor' on the side and stick it where everyone can see it - [ Especially good looking ladies ] - great conversation starter.

    Cover it with flashly LEDs - and stick it where everyone can see it, when asked what it does say:

    'It reverses the polarity of the neutron flows for the network.'

    'Xhamster server.'
