G'day @DexTheDog , I am moving this to Single board computers, where Pi matters are dealt with.

Off Topic is more for non-Linux matters.

Cheers

There are so many things you could do with a Raspberry Pi, even more with a RPi4 since it has more computing power.
The two most adequate uses (for its computing power) I believe are gaming and movies.
For gaming you could install Retropie and emulate any kind of game (i.e. PSX, Nintendo Wii, Gameboy, N64...).
For movies you could install LibreELEC.

Time, really. I never made time for it. They're now just wasting space in a drawer.

I hardly ever set aside time for my projects. It's usually something for everyone else.

They're first-gen RPi. If you do want 'em, I'll gather them up this weekend (as time allows) and ship 'em on. I have six. Only one is opened/tested.

Just gave a guy at work a Lodge Iron skillet ain't used in years, and am giving him a 7 level Dehydrator, last time I used it just ended up making jerky for the dogs. Just found 3 boxes with Motherboards. I Asus Black Pearl, Pentium 3. (Named before the pirate movies) I Gigabyte and 1 Tyan Both AMD the last 2 of which were still new and unused. I am a pack rat, but becoming a pack mouse.

Getting rid of stuff I am not gonna use anymore.

I use a raspberry pi 4 to run pihole. From what I can see it should easily run on older models too. My network has 16 clients and pihole acts as dhcp as well as dns.

I'm thinking of adding lancache to the mix to make my network run more efficient. I wouldn't recommend that on the pi 2 though.
