I could probably find another use for something running Linux 3.10 openwrt on mips with ethernet and wifi if I had to, you could disconnect the ASICs and run it as a router or file share or repeater

Can the machines not be reconfigured to support / mine / sustain any other blockchain technologies ?

You can mine testnet Bitcoins. They are supposed to be worthless though.

who knows about the future, right? Cheesy
No, someone attempted to monetise these in the past and a number of changes were made to testnet to make it worthless to prevent people mining testnet into oblivion making it impossible to test anything on it. You can reset testnet difficulty to 1, and the testnet blockchain is not set in stone, it can be reset to a new genesis block. There's a reason it's called "test"net. It's for testing changes easily, not to make it another worthless piece of shit altcoin that someone tries to make money off.
This doesn't mean that people won't try to somehow profit off of the test net. All any of this really means is that whoever get suckered into buying any testnet coins would most likely end up with another worthless altcoin

I could probably find another use for something running Linux 3.10 openwrt on mips with ethernet and wifi if I had to, you could disconnect the ASICs and run it as a router or file share or repeater

But we are trying to find an alternate purpose of ASICs itself and not the controllers.
Everyone knows the answer, no consistent meaning full purpose other than SHA-D

Then you should change the question from "What can I use Bitcoin miners for" to "What can I use the ASICs from Bitcoin miners for"

You can sell parts for pennies or build an other machine with them.
