Old Computers

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post.

I've been trying to figure out to do with three of my computers. Currently, I have a Sempron 3300+ with 512MB of RAM that I use to watch videos on my TV. Since I use my Xbox for that now, I've been thinking about repurposing it, but my Xbox doesn't play HD video, so I'm not sure I want to get rid of it just yet. That being said, most of my video is not HD, and I hardly ever use it. So I don't know...

I also have a Pentium 4 1.7Ghz with 1GB of RAM that I installed Fedora 14 on. I could use it as an Apache server, but I already have a web hosting account with Godaddy. Perhaps I could put some kind of web app on it or use it for testing. I also could use it as an rsnapshot server to make backups, but there isn't really a whole lot I need to back up.

My third computer is a Celeron 1.4GHz with 256MB of RAM. Yep, it's junk and I should get rid of it. It's fast enough to run Ubuntu server though, so I could do that. I've been thinking about giving it to my brother for that purpose, but he said he wasn't interested. I could also just scrap it and make use of the Windows XP Professional license and the 20GB hard drive.

Who knows what I'll do.
