cruncher or nix box for firewall and nas
File server + general web browsing, e-mail, etc. machine. Might as well see what it's capable of in distributed computing projects as long as it's going to be on.
Where would I be able to recycle it? I don't really have a need for NAS or a firewall, so I'd just rather get it out of here. This things huge and weighs 90lbs btw!
Ship it to me!
Several miles from me there is a dump that recycles old electronics, for a charge, but once a year they let people bring in all their electronics to recycle free. You could look around for a facility like that, but you would probably be best off parting out a few things like memory, CPU, etc. which someone around here would surely be willing to pay at least shipping for.
im sure you could get a sale for teh mobo cpu and rams
I really like to put in use old things. I heard that the old nintendo was sold for a fortune in the yahoo site
I'd keep the PSU for testing out fans, lights, etc. (that is, it has some molex connectors) and take the baseball bat to the rest.
Download box ?
Why does it weigh 90 pounds?
pentium 3, meh... no idea. I would part the thing out and try to sell it. Don't expect much, though...
printserver, firewall, nas, proxy, etc
I use them for all kinds of applainces for small networks.
I gave my old PIII coppermine to my father in law for facebook and he loves it!
Use it as a file server if you have a use for it.
Maybe you could throw it at someone, steal their laptop while unconscious.
Crunching, light server duty, surfing and flash gaming box for a kid, solitaire box for grandma...
If you put Linux on it hell it could host a web site.
Definitely like this idea. Make sure you take video of the baseball-bat-inflicted destruction, Office Space style.
Cheaky fucks, they sell everything they get you know? (electronics are filled with precious metals, they sell stuff over to china to be used to make more electronics)
Anywhom do what I did with a dual socket pentium 3 system I once found, explode it!
I didn't have any explosives at the time so just threw it really high in the air
Still got the CPUS sat in my wash bag type thing ( its filled with tools now instead of flanels and razors )
You could send it to me. I could use it to sight my new rifle in.
I've actually seen a PC with a P3 run XP pretty well.
funny that, XP was designed around that era...
The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
* Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
* At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
* At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
* CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
* Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
* Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600)or higher resolution
* Sound card
* Speakers or headphones
and people wonder why we tell them XP is dead, and to GTFO of it.
YOU STOLE MY IDEA!!!
I was going to take a video of me just firing away with my SKS over and over (using Chinese incendiary rounds, naturally), then post it here for reactionary purposes.
civilians can get that?
civilians can get anything. it all depends on the legalities in your area.
i need to move
In America, we still have gun rights (for now). As far as my knowledge goes, if it's not a fully-auto weapon, you're fine. You can still leagally own a fully-auto weapon, but the parts have to be made before the ban date, and there's tax stamps and paperwork involved.
The SKS looks like a bolt-action rifle from a quick look at google images, which is completely legal.
