Default What to do with my Windows 95?

Many years ago I perchased a computer with Windows XP on it. Before that I just had my Windows 95 with dial up . Im really bored this summer and have decided that i would want to do something with this computer rather then just let it collect dust like it has been... does anyone know of a site or something that could give me some fun mods or other things for an outdated windows 95 computer... I have no fear of destroying it beyond repair, cause its probably going in the Trash soon anyway...i tried googling it but couldnt really find what i wanted...
Thanks

well, marx, if its really that old, the hd is probably like 2 or 3 gb or soemthing lol

edit: personally, i would go really fast in a car on an empty street and whip it out the window, or throw it off of a tall building....

lol. Why not just try to get Windows 98 on it and use it for something useful? I know, it takes the fun away, but still, if I had another available computer, even if it wasn't worth much, I would put Windows 2000 Server and use it on my network for something useful, like a DHCP server. Just me, though.

Win2000 Server probably would go on that, if I was able to get it on a laptop with a Pentium 120, with 32 MB RAM and a 1.6 GB hard drive. Not impossible.
