    Correct on the processors, 2.4 GHz. The company I got it from removed the SCSI drives & memory; the SCSI controller card is still there although I took it out because I wasn't gonna use it right away. I picked up 1GB of Dell memory on ebay and right now just have an 120 gb IDE drive that I installed Windows Server 2003 R2 on just to get it running.

    I have 5 PCs here at home. I was thinking about during something FTP wise. The bottom line is I really have no use for it, but the company was getting rid of it and it was free so I said fuck it I'll take it. Just want to maybe figure out something cool to do with it.

    Not a bad machine I guess. We have one at work being used as a terminal server.

    Step 1: Re-name server "The Naked Lady Machine"
    Step 2: Purchase a domain and set up an FTP
    Step 3: Create thread on OffTopic called "Upload Boobs Here v.NWS"
    Step 4: Wait two hours, after which OT will somehow crash the server with boobs.
    Step 5: Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Restart -> Repeat Steps 1-4.
