I arrived home the other night and was told I had been given a new computer by a family friend. Yeah! A new one. New. So with much anticipation I asked to see it. Now...I know enough about computers to know this little guy ain't new. Nevertheless, impressed by it's retro coolness I booted the guy up at work and Presto! I was back in 2004. Running Mac OS 9.1, this bad boy has even got Photoshop 5.5 , an old version of iTunes and a groovy blue wave wallpaper. We all sang along to "Dancing in the Moonlight" by Toploader. Okay, well I sang along and have had the song stuck in my head since. I'm was also thinking how my Blackberry has more power than this thing. How odd is it how far technology has come in just a few years. So I have no idea what to do with it now, anyone got a suggestion. The top one so far is a doorstop.

Donate it to the childrens home. I'm sure there's a teenager there that would be so grateful to have it even though its outdated.

That's actually a great idea. Do you have one you frequently donate to?
