Merge and Wikify[edit]

This could easily be merged with UNIVAC. I'm a little concerned at the tentative description of classified systems which may or may not have existed...is this encyclopediac? --Wtshymanski 04:09, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This article is mostly nonsense. There were 96 machines built. It was a successor of the UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II designs and was very definitely a commercial product and in no way classified. The external links are correct though. -- RTC 20:16, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
There, that should fill in some details. -- RTC 00:56, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

I added an external link to a site giving locations of over 40 UNIVAC III installations. -- RTC 20:04, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Introduction date[edit]

The year 1962 for the introduction of Univac II is incorrect. I hired on as an electronic technician at Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Company in 1960 to help in the repair and maintenance of their Univac II - which had been up and running a few years before I got there.

Sorry, but this is the article on the UNIVAC III, not the UNIVAC II. Yes, the UNIVAC II was introduced in 1958 and so was available when you used it in 1960, but the UNIVAC III was not introduced until 1962. The article is correct. -- RTC 20:51, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
