What to do with an old computer? Answered
So I am looking for something to do with this old computer, now that I have a new one. It's ~9 years old.
800mhz processor with 384mb ram
SiS760 integrated card (I've never heard of it either)
I would be interested in making an arcade cabinet, but my own games don't run fast enough on it, and I couldn't get MAME to run (graphics error - surprise surprise).
Here's what I was thinking of:
-Linux, programming playground
-Use it to learn to write a custom operating system (I know this is tough, but I'd love to try)
-Backup (only 100gb hard drive)
I'm not thrilled with any of those options. Suggestions?
Note: I know there was a dead computer contest, but I'm not looking for stuff like that. It's still very much useful, and I'm not ready to smash it.
