Any uses for an old Mac G4?

Intelligent flash storage arrays

I have an old Apple 12in PowerBook G4 sitting in a cupboard. It's way behind the curve, PowerPC-equipped - no good for Snow Leopard, in other words - and the battery's had it.

Everyone I know who I'd would have passed it on to in the past has, by now, got a more capable machine.

But it seems a shame to chuck it away.

So, Reg readers, has anyone got any sensible - Moderatrix, please take note - suggestions as to applications I can set this apparent antique - it's only six - to?
