Works, but still sucks. Is it even worth the cost of powering it up?

Word processing, mp3's, folding, ummmmmm...

It's definitely (note that it is spelled correctly) not worth trying to sell, but whether it's worth turning it on or not depends on what you want to accomplish and how patient you are.

I was thinking of keeping it as a router/distributed computing participant; seem like a good idea?

Damn! I figured I could find the mag right away, but failed to do so. However, it was immediatly found in the Winter 2002 PC How To newstand issue of MPC on pg.78. I'm not sure if you have that issue as it had to be picked up from the news stand or if MPC issues back issues of these special mags.

I'll keep looking as now I have it nailed down to 2002. IIRC, the special winter edition came out very close to the original story, so I can narrow it down further to fall or winter '02.

Here's the shopping list though from that issue:
  • Internet connection (duh)
  • BBI agent router: free at http://www.bbiagent.com
  • 386 or newer PC w/ 8MB RAM
  • 1.44MB floppy drive and a diskette
  • Two Supported Ethernet or NE2000 compatible NIC's (see http://www.bbiagent.net/en/hardware.htm for a list of compatible adapters)
  • Network hub or switch w/ enough ports to connect all you PC's to your router
  • Assorted ethernet cables.

I found that issue's CD, and nothing about the linux router was on it. I'm still looking.
