In a lessor role it would make a wonderful digital picture frame.

I'm working on such a project myself, albiet I'm using a PPC iMac G3.
Yeah, I find it quite useful as a media server. I just wish I could figure out how to run the new operating system on, so that way I can run the VLC player on it and other software. This computer isn't too future friendly in the sense that I'd have to figure how to make it compatible with the new OS. Would you happen to have any ideas on how to do that?

Also, I like the idea of using it at a picture frame, I certainly have enough photos to display. IF the media server idea starts to fail, my Dad could use it at the banquet facility he owns for pictures.

Thanks for responding
