My intention was to let you run those
tests with the 2.00g. I only mentioned the old firmware level as a
reference. You can probably still see a difference running those
experiments using 2.00g. I realize you don't have the time right now, but
if you feel so inclined later...

Don't have 2.00f ROMS.
Ian, I can test it if you want to forward 2.00f
ROMS, but Fresno reports that this rate is far better than they had in
14" ballots in Marin. Fresno,
running 18" ballots had these errors while running their Logic and
Accuracy decks. Their feedback is that the ballots in prior
revisions would have these errors every 5 ballots or so. Now we are
up to every 20 to 30 or so, depending on... what I don't know. I
guess my question is: Is this related to strictly a software issue,
or is there some tolerance level of mark on the ballot we're coming up
against? Is this in the physical world of the ballot or in the
software or both??
Here is a
slightly shorter answer than Guy's. Roll back to 2.00f on the same
unit, feed the same ballots, and see if it actually improves anything.
That will answer your question.
