Does anyone have any suggestions what to so with a spare Amiga 500?

I don't really want it as it takes up too much space but I don't really want to sell it at a loss, in fact I seem to have built up an irrational hatred for the thing.

So far my thoughts are:
1. Shove it up in the loft for the next 20+ years
2. Use it as a case for a time capsule and bury it in the garden for 50 years but it's not really watertight.
3. Use it as a ramp if I need to work in on the car...
4. Find a neighbour I don't like and set fire to it on their doorstep
5. Recreate THAT scene from Office Space with a couple of mates (y)

It's all fully working and TC has installed a 1.3/3.1 ROM switcher in it.

I honestly dislike all your options (1. might be the least bad though). I would add

6. Use it for games and/or demos
7. Sell it/give it away

and suggest you to pick one of them.

Fair enough, I'll tells the Wards lorry driver he can't tie it to the front of his lorry then... (n)

I'll shove it on here for trade in the next day or so.
