Or.. just giving scientists more information so they can try and find cures for diseases? Why not?

I second this idea! Sounds like a good thing to be able to know. I'd like to look into it myself, but I lack the...hardware...

Stop all the fans and wrap it in a duvet and laugh as it slowly overheats

Put magnets over certain areas of the computer and watch it squeel

Cut random wires from your PSU whilst the computer is on, one or two at a time and see what happens
You forgot holding a lighter to any capacitors on the GPU or motherboard.

I have some OLD pc's as well; old dells from the windows 98 age. I have no idea what the specs on them are, but I might try to use one as a storage server too. I have no idea where i would start though... we have 5 newish pc's at my house, and they are all sorta networked together. I can get a copy of windows server 2003 for free from my school... could I use that on these pc's anyone think? I believe they are pIII's... they are both identical
