    Turn it into a router like Sinzia said. Hands down the fastest router you could ever use if pared with a dual slot PCI Gig card.
    Sinzia says thanks.

    Yes, I too would make the machine into a file server. Just place a few good large drives into it and a USB hub that can support 16Gb or more cards or sticks.

    This way, forget placing your stuff on the cloud, you have your own machine.
