      When we rescued the UNIVAC 1219-II etc a lot of the power components were
      left behind, we ran out of time. The team to decommission the building was
      waiting outside waiting for us to finish removing the system. We did save
      some of the key power components. Given the 1219 system was a Navy system
      perhaps some of the power components we did save would be useful or "large
      enough". Of course this is all becoming a theoretical discussion.
