I've long thought that logging programs should include an output that  
triggers an M&M dispenser for each new multiplier, 100K point barrier,  full 
hour of operating without off times, etc.
If rewards work for rats, they ought to work for contesters.

Much  more can be done in SOFTWARE to make contests more fun. Imagine a .dta
file  with this grid square and county info that is updated real time  from
QRZ.com to fill in blanks.

Work a new state, and a window pops  up briefly with the previously worked
states in gray and the new state  flashing in red.

The same for grid squares. Even working a new county  might pop up a state
map with the counties already worked in gray and the  new one flashing in

A great circle map might flash the path as  a red line for the current
contact, and it leaves a dot on the map for the  contact which begins to
fade, eventually leaving the map  completely.
