Dear CCTALK --

I hope this is an appropriate place to post this kind of message.
My company occasionally has old computers and such to get rid
of -- "else they're going in the skip".

Would anybody be interested in a Compaq Portable III?  It's
Model 2660 120/240 V, orange screen luggable.  Here's a page
with pictures I found: http://oldcomputers.net/compaqiii.html

It powers up, passes RAM check (640 Kbyte) and then has an error about
options not set, then another about time and date.  I assume
its CMOS RAM battery is flat.  I don't know whether it has
a hard drive (I think so) or whether it will boot or is
repairable.  It has a UK keyboard.

Yours for Two (2) bottles of beer for first person to e-mail me saying
they'll come collect it (from London WC1).

Many thanks,
