[Cwo] log check question: hard-ass or not?

My personal feeling is george is in there because the logging programs self populate with George (what's in the database)..

Some guys are only out there giving points and are not competitive.   Save yourself the work and count them.

If we find two stations are within 3 or points of winning and you want to see how carefully they copied why not then look.

I was in it for the fun only making around 300 or so Q.   I might be one of those just hitting return and not caring about my score or what he sent for his name (ie. hear geo and that's close enough).

>BTW,  I've already built in a small bias in checking serial numbers.  Numbers can be +/-1 from what was reported to be sent.  I've found that to be wise in CQP where I've been able to prove that the actual sent NR can be one off from the logged NR under some circumstances.
