    I keep a nice password protected journal/diary with Journal. It's like an iLife app for your thoughts. I have almost four years of my life documented right now!

    I also keep in touch with my friends with my favorite AIM client, Adium. I love the flexibility and customization.

    There are tons of fun or useful apps out there. Discover 'em. :)

    Sign your computer up to participate in a distributed computing project such as folding@home or einstein@home. There are quite a few initiatives out there with almost as many different objectives. Depending on your interests, you may find a worthwhile use for your computer's spare CPU cycles.

    Here's a list if you're interested: http://distributedcomputing.info/projects.html

    The Folding@home program is a great thing to do with a Mac that doesn't get much use. I do the same with my own personal machine (when idle) and my PS3. PS3 is on pretty much 24/7. I have only one game and use it mainly as a Blu-ray player whenever it's not crunching data about protein folding.

    If you have other computers, you could turn it into a server.
