If it's a Univac I, I want it :-) I really don't know much about the
history of the Univac, but the same name was used for a bunch of quite
different machines I think. The first one was the direct descendent of
the ENIAC, so no, the "Uni" in Univac has nothing to do with Unix, if
that's what you're thinking.

It sounds like quite a cool graveyard, though.
