So I have recently come into possession of 11 computers. 7 of them are Evesham boxes (~1.4GHz, 256MB RAM) from around 2004, and 4 of them are from around 2006 (~1.6GHz, 256MB+ RAM).

I don't really have a use for these machines, but it seems a shame to have them sitting around doing nothing - so my question is this: What can i do with 11 reasonably old computers? Any ideas would be appreciated :p

So far I can only think of clustering them together, but I don't have any computing that I can distribute over the cluster Confused

Use them to perform work for something like SETI@home? :') nah honestly, I wouldn't know... I'd use some of them as file servers and others for messing around without having to worry about viruses spreading all over your network.

Ooooh, I like the SETI@home idea.... actually I'm tempted to put the free rainbow tables distributed cracker (http://www.freerainbowtables.com) on them... I think I'll set aside a machine as a server as well.

Any other ideas?
Thanks! Smile

Update:

Got the 7 evesham boxes up and running, apparently they run at 2.4GHz - a LOT heftier than the 1.4GHz that I expected! Still haven't got the 4 other machines working yet.

Currently trying to install the latest release of Ubuntu that includes some cloud computing technology... does anybody know if the nodes are required to have Intel-VT extensions or if its simply reccomended?

Once I have them up and running, I'll start it running DistRTgen for a week or so and see how they do. I worked out the consumption of these machines, and its quite expensive to run them apparently according to my calculations!

I think Im going to set up at least one of them to be a lab target box, and use it for practice Wink
