This kind of techy, but maybe someone here can give me an idea.

I lease out a computer (or, rather, the resources of one.) It's physically in Texas, 2000 miles away. I can do anything I want on this computer. I can run servers, I can run services, I can do whatever the heck I want with it. I have guaranteed resources. (ie, it isn't a machine shared by 80 people.) The only OS it can run is Linux, though there's about 9 or 10 different distros to pick from.

I cannot think of a darn thing to do with it. Can you think of anything? I run a very dead message board (which I don't advertise) on it right now and that's it. At one point I ran a Left 4 Dead server on it as well as a Team Fortress 2 server, but I've stopped with both of those.

If I can't think of something to do with it soon, I'm going to cancel it. Any ideas? What would you do if you were in my situation? ("cancel it" is a perfectly acceptable answer. I know the idea of leasing computer space seems completely pointless to some people.)
