    I have a century old PC in the basement with a Pentium 166MHz processor and two 3GB drives which still comes up just fine with Linux. For some time I used for storing our family photo album until loading thumbnails on the web pages became unbearably slow and newer faster computers became cheap. Not sure it will qualify for any of the 10 uses. Probably good for a museum

    I like the Donate CPU Time to Science article. I always wanted to know if SETI is actually watching the sky everywhere.

      Unfortunately, I don't think that we'll discover any other intelligent lifeforms in our universe until we are warp drive capable. Big Grin Sorry, too much Star Trek.
