Is my old amd3200 computer good for anything or should I give it away?

    I would not like it to just be destroyed. Would prefer it found a good home.

    But in terms of marketing is there anything productive I could use it for?

    It has just been lying in my spare room doing nothing for several years apart from the odd job.

    I am moving house so don't want to move with anything superfluous.

    If I can get some good ideas to use it for to help with my work then I'd be all for keeping it but I don't want it just taking up room in my new place since there will be way less free space in new place.

    Ideas?

    Make sure you flatten it properly before you pass it on, though.

    You could stick Linux on it and have it as a file server, backup server or for self hosted web apps in the house.

    Give it for free to some geek. He might be able to get something from it.

    Seems like alot of hoarders in this thread :D.

    I am the opposite. I dont like waste but also don't keep stuff just for the sake of it.

    I found out there is a collection at my building once a week, some dude takes old elec stuff. So off it goes.

    fuck that pisses me off i put my old computer out the back of my building since the caretaker said that someone would pick it up on friday to sell at a local market and it has just been lying there all weekend and now i saw someone just ripped the bag it was in open and just left it there open for all to see now i have to watch it being trashedsince no1 picked it up

    I am embarrased to bring it in again or cover it up again since im afraid other residents would look at me and judge me. somehow I thought her suggestion to 'leave it by the bins' was a stupid idea.

    You guys don't have any sentimental value to your possessions? I dont for many things but that computer is one of the only things so I am annoyed seeing it just being laid to waste by the garbage with some fuck ripping the bag open.

    I had many a long session on early MMos and unreal tournament on that baby.

    I am trying to do the old 'do not be attached to possessions' but seeing it ripped apart in front of my eyes is what is triggering me. If it was gone it would be out of sight out of mind.
