Old server

Someone gave me a nice server.

Dual CPU 3ghz and 4 gigs of RAM

several ultra-wide drives

Doggone it...it's got Win2000 server on it.

I don't need a server and can find no one who wants it.

It should be able to run most any new OS just fine
but due to it's size and power consumption is going to be hard to give away.

I'm open to suggestions

The folks over on 2cpu.com like such machines.


But shipping it anywhere, would be prohibitively
expensive. You would need the unlikely combination
of someone who lives in your city, and would
come pick it up.


And if you changed the form factor (went from tower
to rack mount), the noise from the cooling fans
would go up. Tiny fans spinning at 6000 RPM, you
wouldn't want that in any residential situation.
A larger case allows more freedom to select
a fan solution.

Yep, way too heavy to even consider eBay

but I looked inside again and it has

not only one ATA connector, two ultra-wide connectors...
there are also a couple of SATA connectors which I had not noticed before.

Since I already have an SATA drive already loaded with Win7 I popped it  
in and within a few minutes it reconfigured just fine...

So maybe I can find a taker for it
