Pacific Oroville Power, Inc. (POPI)

Solving Manpower and Accuracy Crisis

Three different consultants had attempted and failed to successfully implement POPI's dream of a fully automated truck scaling and biomass fuel's lab system in their 18MW powerplant in Oroville, CA until (then "The Missing Link") arrived.  Since it was under subcontract the former consultant's inappropriate technology had to be adopted regardless and enhanced/suplimemented with apt technology.  The entire system needed type approval with weights and measures who had to be educated by on their own laws, and then was completed with extra perks thrown in which saved the client's workers approximately 1 hour/day over even the contracted for system.

AgraTrading, Inc.

Building an small empire from a spreadsheet printout


In the early 1990's, AgraTrading approached "The Missing Link" with a spreadsheet given them by a client.  They wanted to know if such a thing could be implemented as a sales/management interactive software platform.  They were asked "good, fast, cheap?  pick any two."  They said they wanted it fast and cheap.  They were informed it would not be good, in that there would be minimal user interface, however the program would be robust and, once the operator became familiar with it, streamlined to employ.  A few weeks later it was finished.  We rarely heard from them after except for the occasional reconstruction due to hardware failure and occasional feature upgrade but watched them grow from a closet sized office to a whole suite and over a $7 million dollar/year business.

Mountain View Press

At the Cutting Edge.

In the late 1980's, several advanced microprocessor designs emerged which could produce 20 times the work at 1/4 the clock rate and 1/8th the circuitry of the popular systems.  One of the inventors of those systems, Glen Haydon of Mountain View Press (a leading clearinghouse for the FORTH programming language) approached "The Missing Link" to develop the microassembler development environment which could run cross platform in large industry, government, and universities.  A few months later Hence4th in C was born and then released open source to also benefit the rest of the programming community.

Breakthrough Human/Machine Interface

Search, Data Mining, Content Management

To support our legal and regulatory service operations, starting in late 1993, VigilanceTech conceptualized a new form of human/machine interaction which utilized dynamically constructed hierarchies of menus to access diverse data by a form of "tri-triangulation" (only with an unlimited number of "angles") in an N-Dimensional sparse array.  This technology empowers one to store and search, for example, multi-media data without accessing its own metadata and without the user having to dream up keywords to guess what is actually stored in the database.  It all is right there at one's finger tips, and if they don't initially find what they are looking for, they can retain the search and start a new "angle" successively refining it.  In 2000 a prototype in the Lisp programming language was implemented.

We are currently seeking equity and technology partners on this innovation.
