Seems like a rather simple solution to me...get rid of telnet.  Keep the 
assisted category.  What would this accomplish?  Well, for those who remember 
packet when that is what it was, when the contest rolled around and the 
activity on the cluster went thru the roof, the endless disconnects were a real 
pain.  OK, I know that the software will reconnect automatically but the 
distraction is there.  Then there was of course the building up of the system.  
Took a lot of time away from improving ones own station didn't it?  Don't 
forget the limits...how many clusters can be linked together before disconnects 
are common?  I can't remember but I do remember our local cluster turning off 
all the extra nodes just so we could stay connected for the duration of the 
contest.  No more worldwide spots...I suppose I could think of a few more but 
thats it for now.

My 2 cents,

David, WA3NKO
