   Useless?  Why, specifically, do you say that?

   It's a VAX.  Appears to be a MicroVAX 3600, a KA650 or 655 based 
MicroVAX-3.  Slow by today's standards, but not so slow as to be 
without application.  It will run NetBSD or VMS very well, and...well, 
it's a VAX, one of the most elegant processor architectures ever 
designed.  And not actually all that big, either.
