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.

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.

From your earlier reply, Owl. Here's basically what I was talking about

Also, shouldn't need a monitor connected as if you wish to maintain it you can use a free version of teamviewer
www.teamviewer.com

EDIT:

Also a good example of a VM, I can't run native Ubuntu and keep my wifi connectivity so I am limited to using a virtual machine to write/build my code for my android kernels.
ok thank you. I'm not a code writer and I barely can understand the ubuntu because of these Synaptics package I can't even delete netiher understand.
