    My in laws are buying 2 new computers and giving us the ones they had. I currently do all my work on my laptop and already have 2 computers and 1 other laptop in the house. I am not a techie so dumb it down for me :) What would be the most efficient use for 2 other computers? Might just sell them on CL if I cant find any worthwhile use for them. I dont know the specs yet, keep that in mind.

    Didnt know where else to post this so if there is a better spot mods, please move this.

    Thanks

    what about hosting but that still depends on the computers if they have enough RAM

    Interesting, the 24/7 SEO automation I get, buy SB, SE nuke etc.. and build links all day. But tell me more about hosting...What would I require aside fromt he computers themselves provided I have enough RAM.

    Hosting is too complicated, you can't provide any sort of uptime guarantee since your lights might go out or the isp has problems etc. plus the servers won't be able to take much of a load depending on your upload speed.
    I'd recommend the 24/7 seo automation

    yeah I would just go with SEO. you could do just as you said and have SB, SNX, and if you have it, xrumer, run all day. BUT if you have a shitty connection it would fuck up your laptop if you wanted to use the internet on it

    I use to play WoW, so do have an account and a level 80 toon I think. I'd like more information on this too. I played it on what is currently my spare computer, and it had issues handling all the graphics. I have another spare slightly newer (but still old computer) I could snag from my parents. So I had been wondering what two spare computers could be used for too.

    Mine can't handle much though and I don't think I can afford SB or all those programs right now and have no idea how to auto link build, etc, lol.

    Not trying to hijack your thread, I would just like to know more options too. Mine are too old to sell, lol.

    turn them into your dedicated spammer machines.

    SEO automation like the one guy suggested.. really anything that can be automated.. you can have running on it's own dedicated computer.. and not have to worry about it bogging down your main one.

    dunno if you mess with youtube or not.. but you could install the vagex viewer and have it running 24/7 so you're gaining some credits to use down the road.

    My son is telling me bots are pretty obvious based on their behaviors and that they get banned pretty quickly once reported. Still want to hear more about it though

    My one computer, won't allow the net frame upgrade, to let vagex work. Durrrrr. And for "spammer computers" you need to be doing it by proxy, right?

    Any other programs you can just have running, that don't need all the set up and costs or the spamming? Or low to no cost ones, that could get some cash to invest for improved spamming, etc?

    How long does it usually take to get to 26,000 credits on vagex? I just started using it

    depends on what you're doing if you need proxies or not.. you don't really for vagex unless you want to run multiple instances of it.. i think they want a different ip and different account per instance running in your account.

    that's weird that you can't get the framework installed.. do you get an error or something, or what? .. they have a firefox plugin too I think.. maybe that'd work?

    but yeah for most spamming things you'd need proxies.. cant think of anything else that would make money really on autopilot without much setup.. pretty much everything worth while takes time to get it setup properly before it can actually generate you some money.. and you'll have to invest some money into it as well.. (proxies, accounts, whatever)

    even though vagex is easy to get running.. you won't even make a 1$ a day from it I don't think.. I just have it running so I can use the credits down the road when I start messing with youtube.

    I'm sure there's some other things that don't require much setup like vagex though.. but it will take a while to make anything from them most likely.

    Completely forgot Vagex had a firefox plugin. But not even $1 a day, really is bad. Unless I could sell views somewhere else, but I don't believe they all stick.

    Sucks, but my room mate bounced without notice and had some set backs, so looking for anyway to get extra money following, just don't have capital to put up unfortunately. There anything that could get 2 to 3 dollars a day a spare computer could do?
