Same here! :)

Well, I was in IRC mid December and we (z00dax, amongst others) were 
discussing a PowerPC port of CentOS (especially as upstream will provide 
a PowerPC port of RHEL6). I do have some maschines here (I also could 
and would like to enable shell access to), the biggest one being a dual 
Power4+ (1.45GHz) 275. Also, I could provide ISP services like web 
space, maybe CVS/SVN stuff, mailing lists etc for free.
