 Took a look thru my files and couldn't find the results of my search
 A simple search on Ogivar should turn up some stuff. I think they are still in
existence only under a different name. Based on his question I would suspect
Arlen Michaels who's in Ottawa has more knowledge of Olivar.
 Another interesting company is Lanpar which was formed by a couple of Northern
Telecom ex-employees. Lotus basicly stole their product and based 123 on
their video processes.
 There was no contest on this. Lotus had obviously done it . The suit against
Lotus however, was denied after 10 years of litigation, only on a
technicality in the registration of their original patent. I had one of their
terminals a while back but tossed it for lack of room. Now I regret it of
 Another beaver being gang-banged by the eagle ,donkey ,and elephant.
After so many years by the British bulldog, why not.
