I've got a Beige G3 that I bought last December to see if I really wanted to switch and I just bought a PowerBook today.

Any suggestions for ways I could put it to use?

What do you need?
The old beiges are fast enough to use for e-mail or web-surf (if your patient). I know people who use them for file and print servers. They are old and slow, but every one I've come across still seems to work. You could always sell it.

I use my Beige G3 All-In-One as a nice secondary machine. I over-clocked it to 315 MHz, upgraded the RAM and hard drive, and installed Panther on it, and it works great. I actually probably use it just as much as my far newer iBook.
