    Hey everyone, any ideas for monetizing my extra PC?

    I have my main work one, one for my main employee, one that is pretty much running iMacros on different projects the whole day, and now I have one left over that isn't doing anything. Seems like I could be putting it to work! Any ideas?

    Cheers :tee::tee:

    You already answered you own question. Run automated scripts/software on it

    For example, I have several "account creation" base script that run once every 20 minutes. They run as cronjobs on my old pc which have linux installed on it. The cronjobs following that "age and legitimize" said account through standard methods. These run once an hour for the 5 newest account and every other hour for older accounts.

    Thanks for the help, but my other spare PC is already running all the macros I need for the day. I was curious if there were any other types of things I could have it running to be more useful, but as you were saying I may just find some other things to script and run on that one.
