After the latest troubles with my computer, we decided that it was best just to go buy an inexpensive new Dell. This one has Vista, so I can load office and do all the normal stuff on it.

However, I just got a great deal on a motherboard/ram/processor (http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/124225), so I decided to rehabilitate the old one into something fun.

Should be about 1 GB of ram, 100+ GB hard drive, and the AMD processor. I'm thinking of making it into a LINUX box, maybe making it into an SSH media server. But hey, it's a new toy to play with, so I'm looking for fun suggestions. :D
