> I was thinking it was some odd variant and somehow unique - my mistake. I know of other surviving Univac machines, sure, but I remember when this one was acquired there was an issue with locating software, since it was different enough to not be compatible. What model is it anyway? It's been a while since I thought about it :)It's a 1219-B, if I remember correctly. That's the military version of
the commercial 418.
> Are there pictures of the whole system next to the tape deck in the museum?Not good ones. Most of the components are stuffed into a dark corner.
> While it's obvious that there isn't nearly enough room to put the whole computer on display, it would be nice to have a good photo of the whole machine, to make it clear that this tape drive is only a small piece of a very, very big (and very, very cool) computer system.We always tell visitors about that.
