Not without a competition!

Compaq DL360 is still new enough to have PCI-Express and DDR2!
Hardly recycled ;)

Up until 3 years ago, when the IDE bus failed, I was using a pre-Pentium black 
and white laptop + docking station for a NNTP server. Until about a month 
ago, I had a K6-2 with broken PS/2 ports running my PBX. It had to boot from 
CD because the BIOS couldn't handle the 120 GB hard drive.

Even if those are disqualified due to having been retired, not a one of my 
running machines supports DDR2, and one even uses PC133. :)

I also have 3 extra cable modems (which appear to be available in excess) that 
I'm using to learn embedded development (I'm trying to port Linux to the 
Broadcom 33xx SoC series with them). Even if I don't get the recycling award: 
anyone else interested in this project? I'm kindof stuck. :p
