Oh, forgot one small item.
If you want to improve your odds on finding things in the memory cards, try to get one that was -never used-. A spare one. Then copy it verbatim and in toto, including the 'blank' parts. (It would be called a 'sector copy' if it was a real disk with spinning platters, but the electronic analogue of the same thing is available for solid-state storage media.)
Insert it into a machine set up for the election in question (date changed to the election day, etc.) and then start inputting votes to see what happens. Compare the contents of the card post-election with the image from pre-election.
This kind of thing not only is what I have all this 'spensive eddikayshun fer, it's the sort of thing I call "fun." (Yes, I'm one of those weirdo-hippy-freak geek types.) I keep trundling possibilities around in my head during the slow times at the office, and this is one of the ones that popped out.
wwwill -- You are not understanding the true problem with the architecture of the Diebold op-scan system. The master program is in the card, and it is the card that controls the machine, not the other way around. (Yes, really.)-- Bev
