HP leaving NH

Yup, the office building known as ZKO and where I've spent the last 20 years working for DEC/Compaq/HP is no longer going to be where I park my butt during the day. I'll be heading down to Marlboro, MA a few days a week starting sometime in 2008.

Here is what the Nashua Telegraph has to say in their newsblog section: HP to close Nashua site. The news traveled fast -- their entry is dated 5:24pm today, just hours after the official announcement to employees.

Update: Wednesday full coverage in the Nashua Telegraph: HP to close Nashua site

I wonder when the new owners will take down the VMS-inspired Non-Paged Pool sign.

Non-Paged Pool sign (1/3)


  1. The "NON-PAGED POOL" sign is still there but the buildings are being repainted concrete-gray color. At least ZKO2 at this point (that's the building I'm in). I liked the dark brown color better. It made the buildings blend into the sorrounding trees.

  2. All of HP should be moved out of Spit Brook by the end of next month. My sources tell me that this bit of DEC history will be moving too.
