Donation

Today we went to the national computer museum (one of the things in Bletchley Park) to donate my GeoFox One (functioning) and my Olivetti P6040 (not, though the fan and an LED come on when you power it up).
The GeoFox could fit in nicely with their display of Psions and similar. Although obviously it is rarer since I suspect I was the only person stupid enough to actually buy one rather than receive one as a sample copy. They went bust shortly afterwards.

The P6040 also looks like it will be in a good home, there were two Olivetti desk calculator things out, you could see that the styling was similar.

There is not much on the web about it due to it not being from the UK or US. Things related to computing in other countries do not register. It has an Italian Wikipedia page though http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivetti_P6040

Like the whippet that we didn't have, I think they have gone to a good home.
