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.
