Hmm I think computers are both. We wouldn't really have a rescue list
without the notion that computers are toys as well as tools. I can
think of only a few things more fun than rescuing an old machine and
learning about it inside and out (it may not be that useful to me for
what I do in life, but I don't care) I have no use for my Crimson
right now but I pay for the juice to keep it on because I love it plain
and simple. It's there for me to putter around with. Some day I may
actually need it who knows?
