We have an old connexions kiosk not being used. Any suggestions on what to do with it?
It's large, heavy, has a keyboard, trackball, touch screen and contains a Dell PC (can't remember the model). I've been asked to chuck it, but that would be such a waste of the hardware. We were told at the time of the installation that they cost about £6,000 each.
Connexions installed it years ago, but it seems to have become one of those forgotten government projects. We've made enquires through our Connexions rep, but she's drawn a blank. No one there knows anything about the kiosks.
There's the obvious choices: games / internet machine, but that would just cause problems. The librarian doesn't want it it the library any more, so that rules out eclipse.

Little web site explaining how wonderful your school is... then plonk it in the reception area
Alternatively, run a web browser to view Nagios/Nagvis

I had to look that up! Yes, a retro games cabinet might be nice. Would annoy whoever's room it was in, though.

Even more of a reason to do it then.
