   I was offered a complete HP-150 system last year but had to go get it.
It turns out that is was in the Florida Regional Crime Lab. I went and
picked it up and it was THE cleanest computer that I've ever seen. It
looked like it had just come out of the factory and was spotless inside and
out. Not even any stickers on it. It turns out that it had spent it's life
inside a lab hooked to a gas chromatograph or some such were NO
contamination could be tolerated. It was real shame to bring it home and
stuff it into the outbuilding with all the other computers. Anybody else
run into situations like this?
