What the hell would you do with it?

The day job is techie type stuff so between that and the second job I don't have that much time or inclination to go full geek.

One's running SETI. And a chess game. Another is connected to an antenna that feeds flight data to Flight Radar 24, which gives us a free premium subscription.

I suppose I would have to spend an exorbitant amount of time to learn how to interface and program it to perform some minor tasks.

It sounds like fun.
