RE: Puerto Rico Election

Yes, that is what we wanted to do, but unfortunately when you try to save 
the settings to a 128k memory card using CC2.00g, it kept giving the 
message - ( BAD CHECKSUM, OK TO FORMAT? ), and we could not save the 
settings to a memory card.  I have just duplicated this message here in the 
Omaha office, again with a 128k memory card using CC2.00g.  I know that you 
can save to a 32k memory card using 2.00g, because I have done this in 
Memphis, TN.

If a central count machine looses power can the firmware or maybe a memory 
card hold the server IP address instead of asking the operator to indicate 
the server IP via buttons before you can linkup to server? Basically 
customer proof it so that on power up it automatically logs on to server 
and it proceeds with the counting of ballots. Also, do not ask if we would 
like to use the feeder or to re-circulate ballots unless you go to 
supervisory functions and you manually change the defaults. It could be 
that this is done if you leave a memory card in each machine, but I just do 
not know at this time. We sure could have used this feature?
The host IP address is saved when you save the setup to the memory card in 
the supervisor functions. I believe that CC will still prompt you for this 
address but then it's just a matter of pressing YES to confirm it.
Unfortunately the AV has no persistent memory other than the memory card so 
it is not able to save this information in any other way.
I hope this helps.
