      > 1. We're finally moving the UNIVAC out of the locked-up section and into our own storage section this Saturday. That is great news! It will be on proper pallets and now we can show it to more people, with its many racks all lined up, rather than just bundled in a dark corner. Steve G. will operate the forklift. Me, Jeff J., Corey, and probably various InfoAge volunteers will be there starting at 10am to assist. We could use additional help from anyone who is very strong (and very patient). The two CPU racks weigh about 1,500 pounds each, the tape drive is 1,000 pounds, and the peripherals are no lightweights either. (The other tape drive + misc. peripherals will remain in our museum.) Please only volunteer for to help if you're able to do heavy lifting.... not the kind of project where we want people in the way or everyone trying to be in charge. :)

      Which UNIVAC?
