I like computer logging also. And my computer is never so slow that it
would take 5 or 10 seconds to tell me if a call is a dupe...rather that
indication pops up as soon as I enter the call...its there as fast as I can
read it...certainly before I could visually look over a dupe sheet.
After logging a contest, I print it out and place the papers into my binder.
So the computer could explode this second and I'd never lose a log record.
Unless the house burned down.
So, I feel that contest logging especially is far more to my liking than
paper logging, and I still have my paper logs as a backstop.
