What are the specs of it?
Instead of blowing it up, why not make use of it?
Make a file server, SSH server, linux box, tons of uses.

I assume its going to be some intel p4 with 512mb.

I meant "dont suggest blowing it up" sorry. What is a "linux box"? I think I am going to use it as a file server but I dont think id use it as much as i would.

What a Riddle, How to Destroy it without using explosives or my hand or any hand i control......

Casually poor Gasoline (Or any other flammable liquid) around the computer and very casually light a match, drop it, and walk away without looking at it. Because we all know that cool guys don't look at explosions.

Otherwise Craigslist will probably get you around $100 for it.
im sure it doesn't have a video card, even if it does, it would get 500pd most. Plus electric bill would increase for such little points.

Run linux on it. From there you can do many different things.
Or make a FreeNAS or a UnRAID box for storage off your local drives.

Had already pulled up your thread and copied the link. This is a great use of an old dell. I am thinking of doing it myself. Other than that, I dont know what to do with it other than sell it locally. Maybe give it away in the freebies section??

depending on how old it is.. it's likely going to be a huge energy hog and noisy .... so the best thing to do with it is get rid of it. a modern desktop for $300 or so will easily outperform an old server and probably use less electricity to run. For example, a Q6600 desktop computer can be had for $300 or so and it will easily outperform my dual Xeon Prescott based server. Not only that, the SATA drives, low voltage memory, and lower TDP CPUs will draw less power and waste less power. Compare that to the 150W TDP of the old Prescott Xeons, the 15K RPM SCSI drives, etc...

so, no joke... get rid of it...
