Okay, Tree.  There ya go!  How about a blood-glucose level interface between
TRLog and the operator?  Not only could the operator fine tune his
blood-glucose leve, but after the contest,  in Post, he'd be able to correlate
the levels with rates!

Now, that's something that can help performance and scores.

Maybe a periodic on-screen reminder to take a drink of water, too.
