• Web Server

• Media Server

• Paper weight

• DVR (put a TV Tuner in it) -- nah, probably not enough processing power unless the GPU takes over

• Classic arcade game/ Classic video game console emulators (think MAME).

• Heater for really cold nights (just remove the heat sink and fan).

• "Car"puter -- somehow jam it into the dash of a car, like where the passenger side airbag should be.

I have #1,3,5 already done. A heater? That would just shut off lol. It would be more effective keeping it on. My pentium d likes to warm my room quite a bit when leaving it running overnight,

All of my family members near me have decent pc's. Donating them to a thrift store? 99% of the time they end up in a dumpster.

You can sell them to gamestop or other places for the parts and then use that money to get new things.
