So I've got my hands on one of these puppies, what would you do with it?

The version I have is 600Mhz with 512Mb ddr, duel nic, with embedded Win XP.

    Does it Fold? ;)

    I have no idea what I'd use it for.

    Use it for an always-on downloading client or as a controller for a small display that can be used as a media interface with another server box.

    (I love these things.)

    The guy who gave it to me is using 2 of them as a redundant firewall PF whatever.

    Hmmm.... @Snarkasm.... things to think over.

    Probably not so good at folding.

    Hmm. I'd use it as a controller interface for an automatic drink mixer.

    Either a web server or a firewall. Throw monowall or IPCop on there.

    I would also use it as a firewall. Smoothwall FTW.

    lol^^

    I have a WRT54GL Running Tomato firmware, so I am quite happy with my firewall setup right now. I do have little kids that "play" on the internet, so I am thinking more of a content filter setup or some other line of defense, mostly because I can..... I think.
