My dad told me the other day that he could pick me up 3 blue and white G3's that aren't being used anymore at his work. They are stripped of all the RAM (cheap enough to replace) and have no monitors. Can anyone think of any cool projects I might be able to do? Take into account the limited HD space those things probably have, and I believe the processors are 333 mHz.

Post all of your ideas!!!! I'm lookin' for a project.

mod them

run linux

use the case for a PC and build your own gaming rig or something to that effect.

Make a lamp out of the case or something else similiar

Another place to look for inspiration is http://www.applefritter.com.

There are some pretty scary hardware hackers hanging out in the forum...

Thanks for the websites. I'll have to scope those out today. Anybody ever seen any mods utilizing 3 computers at once? That would be crazy, although I can't think of how that would be useful in any way
