    Hi BHWers

    I have a server that I've already paid for, but which for many reasons, is now surplus to requirements. I've cancelled it, but it is now surplus to requirements.

    Any suggestions on how to use it till the end of the month, and maybe recoup some of the cost of this server?

    It is a fairly beefy machine.
    2 x Quad core Xeons, with 16Gb RAM.
    US based, with usual limitations on IRC, torrents and so forth.
    5 IP addresses ... I'll have to read through the ToCs, but I might create 5 VPNs/Proxies to use too.

    The only fly in the buttermilk, is that it has Linux as the OS. Am planning on installing VMware on top of this, then running Win 7 if that helps.

    All *ahem* profitable suggestions would be welcome. I posted this in the lounge, so feel free to be creative with your suggestions.
