When the planets line up right, I tap into NORAD and realign all the satellites. No really, I use them for printing coupons. The major couponing sites have terms of service that say that you can print two coupons per computer that you own.

I bought a few pallets of surplus from some schools and decided to put a lot of them to good use. I don't knew monitors, keyboards or mouses because I use Remote Desktop to control them. Let's just say the women in the couponing groups love me.

Probably does time travel with that setup. This way, the coupons never expire.

Actually, very little work indeed. I spend about an hour a week locating and printing coupons each week. Then I spend about two hours per week doing the shopping. I hit four Publix on my way to work and the same four on my way home. Pretty quick and easy when you know what you are purchasing. Added benefit is that my Fitbit gets lots of extra steps as I grab those groceries.

Here's an example: Publix had Campbell’s Slow Kettle Soups, Gourmet Bisques, Go Soups, 14 oz-18.3 oz, $2 this week. I love the Slow Kettle Soups.

Publix had a $2 off 2 Soups Printable Coupon AND that could be combined with $1 off each can manufacturers printable coupons. Making the soup, FREE! (My favorite price)

In addition if you purchased it on Wednesday or Thursday (different day in each market) you could take advantage of the Penny Item which last week was 64 ounce Apple Juice. Another freebie after coupon this week was Gerber Stage 2 Baby Food, not a product that I need but I gave a big box of them to a single mommy that I know and now she thinks, I rock.

PowerPC computers are perfect for coupon printing machines. Nothing needs to be on them other than Safari, Java and your printer driver. PowerPC's are very inexpensive to acquire, require very little work to set up. As you saw, I used teenage labor for the eMacs.

I'd love one of the ALS or iSight 20'' models! Even if they can be unreliable.

Edit: My new setup is a Powerbook G4 15'' Hi-Res and a 17'' iMac G4 1.25GHz. Pic. in attachments.

Working just fine, no problem at all. F3 and F4 are shortcuts for Exposť and Dashboard, so it is great for Leopard.
