Found a first generation Mac Mini hiding in my boxes of misc computer
stuff. Still had the vga adaptor so I hooked it up. It's got a 1.25 ghz G4,
1 gb ram, a 40 (37 gb formatted) gb disk, Combo Drive & OS X 10.3.7
installed. No airport card.

Now what do I do with this old gal?

Perhaps one of the BSDs? It'll run up to 10.5 but my memory is that was
rather painful with a max of 1 gb ram. OTOH, browsing with anything old
enough to run on this girl is going to be grim.

Curious little first world problem. I'd like to find some good use for it
or sell it. It would be a shame for the little thing to get recycled.
