I've got an 8500 that once upon a time I was going to turn into a print spooler, then a Mpeg Jute box. I took it apart to canibalize some fans but changed my mind. It's still in parts but I can easily reassemble. Does anybody have any ideas of what to do with it? Anybody want some parts - I realize it would cost more to ship than it's worth. But some of you are amazing little inventors and might need something I never thought of. Or should I just send it to the Land Fill?
If you do decide to trash it search around for a computer recycling organization in your area. You could use it for legacy compatability for that app that never got converted to OSX or the occasional game of Marathon. Frog Blast the Vent Core!

Yes, recycle. There's one just down the street from me and to tell you the truth, it's easier for me to dump it in their lap. But I wanted to see if anybody could turn it into a computerized coffee maker or something.
OK. TCPmeta, I've got you down for the case. You know, you could put the parts of a water cooler in it.
I'll wait a week or so and see if anybody really has any creative uses. If not, I'll take it out back and strip the parts, weigh the ones people want, and figure out how to ship.
By the way, it includes about(?) 112mg of RAM (the old kind) and a 128TwinnTurbo PCI video card (no longer supported, the company went under) 4GB Hdrive, 2x or? 4x AppleCD burner, floppy drive.
