I posted a link on VCF about using GNU CRC RevEng--a great little
utility to aid in determining polynomials and initial conditions for
CRCs. Not too different from figuring oddball floppy encodings.
What I'd like to see is a QIC mechanical solution that treats DC carts
as a reel-to-teel drive--no tension band worries. I imagine this could
be done by motorizing the takeup and supply reels and putting in a
driven capstan with suitable RPM control. Head positioning, of course,
could be handled the normal way. Perhaps an old top-of-the-line audio
cassette transport could be adapted.
