    i have an extra computer sitting here all set up but not doing anything.
    Is there anything i could use it for to maybe sell a service? or something useful?

    I actually am in the process of buying a garbage computer that I can run Scrapeboard/box, BMD, AMR on 24/7/ It's cheaper than renting out a VPS.

    with no investment I'd recommend doing some gigs in fiverr like reencoding some videos some thing that consume no internet bandwidth ir a little, for instance using bots in mmorpg and selling items/gold/accounts long time ago there was a guy here who claimed to make like 1k per month doing this but nowadays you can expect something like 200 per month still some money to get investment to buy proper tools start cashing serious money

    If that extra pc has ATI video card, then definately worth checking out the mining, otherwise, try to calculate your electricity bill.

    It's like e-gold, but free like torrents. You can cash-in or cash-out only through other members, there's no direct pay by paypal button and there's a limit of somewhat bitcoins that can be mined globally.
    Mining is profitable only if you have decent ATI video card, since you can use it instead of your cpu to do the pickaxe thingy.
