    I have like a bunch of old computers from and 8086, 286, 386, 486 even p2 and p3 systems. They are pretty much useless now so what should i do with them? Any way to recycle them for money or sell them to someone?

    hang on to them, someday they will be museum peices. i wish i had all my old stuff still.

    pack them into giant trashbags, throw some silica gel in there, and stick them in your attic.

    with 486 and above turn them into firewalls/servers with some old distros of linux. easy to do, fun to do, and a great learning experience.

    if you have any really tall buildings in your town see if you can get to the roof and toss em off. this is great fun with old tv sets but i'm sure computers will assplode cool too.

    no, they dont. better to drill some holes into them, tie it up behind a car and do donuts swining the boxes into cement barriers (like A10's). done that myself with friends, it was awesome. :bowdown: the Apple IIe never saw it coming!
