It machine itself is running fine. The problem is that the latest version of OS X that it can run is 10.4.11 (we are running the server version). 10.4.11 was released in November 2007, which means that any bugs (we are seeing a lot of DNS issues lately, which completely take the machine of the Internet) are long forgotten by Apple and will never be fixed. Not to mention security updates.

Alas, the hardware outlasted the software. :-)
