>> 06- Bill Dromgoole - Plan on working on Univac 1532 mods for 60 Hz operation.
I've been meaning to announce this to everyone, so here goes: we are finally doing something interesting with the Univac.
Of course, "interesting" is subjective. I was thrilled that we were able to display it a few VCF East shows ago, and I'm downright ecstatic that much of the system now has a full-time home in our new museum vs. hiding in storage.
Bill Drom. (and Duane, who's attending this June workshop all the way from North Carolina) jointly emailed me recently and asked if they can start actually doing something with the computer by working on the paper tape console. Yes!! This makes a lot of sense because it's the smallest piece of the system (easiest to move) and we have three extra consoles, so there's a great chance they can make one fully working unit.
