Logitech TrackMan Portable Mouse T-CE3 - PS/2


This little beauty came with a laptop I recently won in eBay:


It clips on to the side of a compatible/suitable laptop and plugs in to the PS/2 port.

Compaq Armada Series QuickRestore Recovery CDs

This came all the way from Israel today (vie eBay):


I didnt realise but it has both Windows 95 and Windows 98 restore options/CDs:


Can't wait to try them out!  I need to make a backup ISO image of them first so these can go away in to storage.

Compaq Armada 7400

This turned up a few weeks back but I've only just had a chance to take a look at it.  It's a bit dirty, the hinge covers are damaged and there are a couple of screws missing.  It did however come with not one, but two power supplies which is a bit of luck as it's not a normal round connector but a square-ish one with 4 prongs inside it.





On connecting up one of the power supplies that came with this laptop I briefly saw the Compaq logo appear on the screen before it turned itself off.  Seems there is a loose connection as when I wiggled the power cable at the rear of the laptop it would let me power it on but as soon as I moved the cable slightly it powered off again - I'll have to take it apart and see if it's fixable at a later date.

Watch Display Box Case

As I purchased a rare Compaq Watch the other week I thought it best to look after it properly so this faux leather box/case turned up today:



Over time (pun intended) I wonder how many more Compaq Watches I will end up owning?
