Due to problems with some email clients (like mine) I am posting a rebuilt
version of my last message.

After discussing this with Tari this
AM, I think we concluded that several requests may be getting mixed together.
I hope this clarifies.
1) I requested after the last California
Pres. Primary that we have an .abo file that does the following:
prints out standard morning zero print out that includes:
Precinct Ballots Cast
Race - President
Candidate 1 0
Candidate 2 0
Candidate 3 0 etc.
prints out only the Precinct and Ballots Cast information at the end of
the evening and DOES NOT
print out the Race Summary Totals.
I would call this the "California
Short" report. My initial request did not consider muliple CARDS
or ballots in a precinct, just the Precinct Number and Ballots Cast totals.
2) Part of Tari's initial discussion was
seperate from the above and involves Card Numbers and/or Party Ballot Cast
totals also being printed. This is fine and after talking with Tari,
in a multiple ballot or Card situation in a precinct I see the need for
this. However, the ROM change required for this is not something
we will implement for November in California, nor will it be relavant to
this election in that we will not have parties, but I see Tari's point
for the future.
Also, Tari thought I was requesting a summary
totals report be printed, which I didn't want. So once Tari and I
spoke and we realized the confusion, we realized that I may not have been
clear on what was being asked for. Please seperate the two issues
so that California accounts that do not want to print the summary totals
report at the end of the day, can just get the ballots cast by precinct,
without having to change roms. Then, the Card No, Card 10001 vs.
1, Party code etc. can all be worked out in some other version without
getting mixed in with the original request.
I thought that I understood what you were requesting but
now I'm more confused. The above does not look like:

Guy, could we get an AccuBasic Report Option that
just printed out the label
and the ballots cast by precinct only for the zero and election night
report. The California tape was incredibly long in this last
when we combine precincts into a polling place, we really only use
ballots cast information for each precinct. This would shorten
morning and evening procedures. We could always request longer
we need them. 1.94US BCST or something like that. Please
let me know.

And I don't understand what you mean by "summary by precincts":

Guy, I interpret your
message to say that if you want "summary by precinct" totals only (Calif
short version), and you want party code, then you need 1.94y firmware.
That's what I hear Tari asking. And that's how I read your response.
Is that the case?
Here's where we're at. Don't worry about the 1.94y issue --
it's only for if and when you want to print party codes in the cards cast
results for partisan primary ballots. This was not part of your original
request and is probably the result of confusion with the 194 Georgia RCR
which specifically requests full cards cast results with party codes on
Currently, as per the original request, the 194 California .abo prints
full cards cast results but does NOT print votes cast results for the default
Election Zero Report and the default Election Results Report. In
other words, you get VERY SHORT default election reports. If instead
you want cards cast results added to the standard 194 US short reports,
then use the 194 Georgia .abo (but not the one in the 194y-usga.zip file).
And if there is any more confusion, perhaps you better call me.
