I got this letter from Lisa. She wants to pass off an old laptop to someone who might find it useful...

Hi Terry,

I was browsing your website. I have a Compaq Contura 400C laptop which I bought 2nd hand in London maybe 15 years ago. I was wondering if it was of interest to you - or you know someone who wanted it - or a good way to recycle it in NZ.

If it is possible to transfer some data off the laptop before I give it away / recycle it that would be a bonus as well.

I haven't used the laptop for years but last year it worked fine. Unfortunately it was at a friend's place last year and now it seems to be missing a section of the cable to connect it to the power point - the section with the power box! I'm trying to track it down ...

What is your location by the way - I am in Dargaville but will be passing through Auckland around 5th September.

If you want to take advantage of the offer you can email Lisa at
