Very nice pickup. I also like the rotary phone next to it. I grew up with them back in Romania :)

Regards,
Vlad.

Nice. I miss mine (gave it away years ago.)

Did you have any battery issues?

Heh. I had one of those several years back, and it was a great little DOS box indeed. I then got a Toshiba Satellite Pentium 133 and I gave the Compaq away. It was still running when I gave it to a guy, who ran it for several years as primarily a serial terminal for a radio station's automation system.

:p I was wondering if anyone would notice the phone. Very tough and reliable phone, but a pain when you get a computer voice asking you to input a number.
