We use our old hardware for enjoyment, but it's also still useful for
real practical applications. Stupid people say things like "but there's
newer stuff out there!" as if that really means "newer" is automatically
"better". A lot of the time it just isn't the case.
Fortunately for us, we think for ourselves, and can find vast
enjoyment, and even get some real work done, using awesome classic
hardware like this. It's enjoyable, it's practical (though possibly
only barely so), and it's Just Plain Fun.

Man! Wouldn’t you love to be able to reassemble that data center? The model railroad guys
will run a day on their tracks, moving “cargo” and “passengers” around. Imagine gathering up
the volunteers to fully “staff” that facility and running a day’s jobs.
That is a very cool site. I can waste more time than on YouTube!
