Other issues:

2. Power. I doubt I'd ever be able to plug it in. I used to have a VAX 8600
but gave it away because it would be too troublesome for me to provide
power. This Univac would be even worse than that.

3. Little or no spare parts. I like spare parts.

As saddening as it may be, it looks like I should just stick to minis and
shut my mouth. :-( Oh well, if anyone comes to get this thing, I would like
to be invited to at least see it. I'd be glad to help with loading, etc.
