    Default Does anyone have/use a Palantir OCR setup?

    I mentioned that my hellbox has a Calera Palantir OCR card in it from 1988. I think it's not functional, but it might be a source of parts for a malfunctioning one. Back in the day, the Palantir setup was freakishly expensive (think 5 digits) and was one of those things where the card was faster than the host system (used a 68020 and a bunch of fast RAM and ASICs).

    Right now, rather than have it take up space in my stash, I'm inclined to remove the easily-removable parts and scrap it. But if someone already has a Palantir setup and just wants some spares, they can have it.

    I'm pretty sure I know someone who worked on that board - Jim Battle of sol20.org. If it wasn't him, I have another name I connect with it, but the source is at home and I'm not.

    If Jim is the guy, he might be interested or know an old colleague who might be.

    I remember Jim--I think he used to hang out on cctalk.
